|Sorry to bombard you all with more stuff to do with my dissertation but I could really do with some feedback on a video I have made comparing 19 tone equal temperament (19-tet) with 12-tet. The piece was composed in 1558 by Guilaume Costeley and is called Seigneur Dieu ta pitie, it was written in 19-tet, a tuning system that has 19 tones per octave. I have recorded a guiar duet version of it on a guitar that has 19 frets per ocave, I then created a version on a normal 12-tet guitar, this is an approximation and some of the notes had to be rounded up or down.|
If you could take the time to listen to this video which compares the 2 it would be much appraciated. The tone is different of the guitars in the 2 versions as they were recorded on different guitars - try to ignore this.
Any comments on comparing the tuning, consonance/dissonance, the mood created, accessibility, preference or anything else created by the tuning would be great.
thanks a lot,
