New member introductions
« on: September 18, 2012, 09:32:02 PM »

Hi registration is open but due to a 100+ a day spambot attack new members have to have restricted permissions. Please introduce yourself by replying to this thread and i'll move you to a membergroup with standard permissions.
You don't have to own a microtonal guitar to join up.
If you know me at another forum just PM me your username at that forum, no need to introduce yourself.

Hi Matt! Thank you for letting me in :) Presenting myself, I started recently to compose in xenharmonic scales, and my favorites for now are 19-EDO and Bohlen-Pierce. I have some tracks posted in http://soundcloud.com/lois-lancaster , and my main goal here, besides discussing composition-aid tips, is to build ties of partnership for composing, playing and recording stuff. Thanks!

Hi Mat

 Other than joining a Gamelan class for a while a quarter-century ago, very little musical back ground until I got really interested in microtonality maybe 5-6 years back and took up/taught myself the microtonal banjo (initially 19EDO) and have lived in a self referential microtonal bubble since - I play only to amuse myself and haven't recorded anything tho I might if I think I've pinned down something worthwhile and procrastination allows

Hiya Robin you now have full permissions. This forum is so quiet it's quite an event to have a new member join. Did you refret the banjo yourself? Since you wrote 'initially' ... did you then move on to another tuning after 19EDO?

 Did some refretting myself early on; 19 & 22 EDO; My wood/metalwork skill aren't to be envied so this was testing out the idea prior to finding someone willing to do the work properly on a fretless banjo; I have banjo's in 19 & 15 EDO and a Banjola (banjo neck/Mandola body)in 14EDO - this was a colossal mistake so I plan at some point to salvage/partially refret this instrument to 10EDO; I will be picking up my 17EDO banjo shortly

a totally guitar orientated micro/xen forum is pretty bold since we are still off 'critical mass' so I hope I can add something of worth

Hi there,

I'm merely a crappy musician with very little money who would like to build some cheap guitar-like microtonal instruments to see beyond theory, for instance to test if you can be spontaneous in 41et, which I still doubt (but I'd love to believe so!)

I've been a flamenco player for years (not professionally), then I got bored of the patterns of my hands, so I've retuned my guitar in minor thirds. Looses lot of register (I'd need a 9-string guitar) but gives in exchange a deep and easy understanding of harmony, like it was one of those isomorphic keyboards. Also, very interesting fingerings, and solos can be played like arpeggios, showing more clearly how chords shape melodies (or viceversa).

Musical interests: anything if its beautiful: bossa, jazz, rock, good pop (how come Beatles and Britney Spears to be both pop?), flamenco, classic... well, this is a cool world to live in, musically at least!

Mmm, not much else to say. I'm a spaniard, so be kind to my english.
Greetings!
Jose.

Hi Robin and Jose! Nice to meet you!
Robin, would you like to make some 19-EDO banjo solos for my songs?
There's one, for example, that needs a solo in the middle to lose that 'General MIDI' feeling : http://soundcloud.com/lois-lancaster/movi-nove-vers-o-karaoke-goth
Matt, thanks a lot for your compliment!  :)

Hi folks - sorry for the late reply
Oh gosh; I hadn't really planned any such venture to be honest, since I'm am interested, but honestly fairly crumby amateur; I haven't yet tested any level of recordability! let alone being let loose on someones artwork yet :) - Thank you I won't say no should something spontaneously emerge but  I doubt I'm very adaptable outside of my own  meanderings - I've listened a few times and it's a good piece

I'm Chris. I don't actually have a microtonal guitar yet (still haven't finished modding mine yet) so I've been writing mainly with IVOR and scala. I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to theory  :P , so hopefully between here and reading the Xenharmonic wiki I'll learn more.

Hi Chris, you have now been initiated and have full permissions. I'm in contact with Jacky Ligon who created IVOR, he's an awesome and cool guy. When you say you're modding, what are you creating?

That's great! Ivor has been my main tool in composing these days. Please thank him for me!! :D
