Just Intonation vs. Equal Temperament

Kind of a follow up to the previous post. Interesting visualization of the difference between equally tempered tuning (standard) and just intonation.

La Monte Young – The Well Tuned Piano

I’m amazed at how difficult it remains to find recordings by La Monte Young. Some bits on youtube though. Here, the first 10 minutes of The Well Tuned Piano with an unfortunately abrupt ending. And please find something else to look at if you’re listening.

Jan Kempenaers

Kempenaers’ photo series Spomenik, The End of History has popped up on several sites in the past few days, but I’m gonna post them again. Because they’re captivating. The monuments depicted are Yugoslavian socialist-futurist memorials, most employing cast-concrete and a good number of them in a state of advanced disrepair.
