Dueling keyboards

Abstract

Like the computer keyboard, the musical keyboard is a precise and high-bandwidth input device. Its power is a consequence of its elegant embodiment of the structure of Western European music.

In this talk, I will use a combination of the two kinds of keyboard to explain scales, tuning systems and some differences between traditional and algorithmic musical performance.

Tuning

  • Pythagoras, ratios and comma
  • Tuning systems
  • Piece in just intonation vs equal temperament

Natural mapping

  • The keyboard
  • The guitar
  • Baganda pentatonic

Complexity

Performance

  • Dueling keyboards
  • I'm not worried
  • GEB
