Ever wonder why there are twelve notes in an octave?

Ever wonder about other alternatives, and what benefits they offer?

Did you know there’s a way to get your chords more in tune?

Check out the Kite Guitar, which makes amazing harmonic “impossibilities” a reality. All the beauty of Just Intonation (think “Barbershop” or “Choir” harmony) with the practicality of a normal, everyday guitar. Event is Sunday, 4/11/21 at 3PM PST (6PM EST).

At this event–part of our ongoing concert series to support Music+Code video creationKite Giedraitis, Aaron Wolf and, Timmy will explain the principles of tuning and harmonic relationships. They will also demonstrate the Kite Guitar, just recently conceived of in 2019. It uses a high-resolution tuning with more notes than a regular guitar. It approximates the harmonic series much more closely and opens up new musical dimensions.

 

Want a “pre-concert” listen? Check out these two examples. The second example is a side-by-side comparison of a chord progression that works well on the Kite Guitar (41EDO), but not on a “normal” (12EDO) guitar.
