Thanks for taking the time to write your “Hertz so Good” article. It has helped shutting up a few conspiracy nuts on my facebook feed.

Also, many other interesting reads on your site. Keep up the good work!

The funny thing about 432hz imo is that if its a semitone with a slight off bit in terms of cents one could as easy tune 440 that same amount and get the same effect. Its a pointreference. The 432 advocates like the tuning origo to be slightly off ab, and they would still be playing slightly off A440. 🙂

Ty for the good read! The comment section was the funny part! 🙂

Hi from Cambridge . I was thinking about a harmony flow chart yesterday and woke up and found yours. My thought included a timeline to show which composers favored certain patterns, like Fritz Loewe’s propensity for leaving his bridges on III#5 (If Ever I Would
leave You, How to Handle a Woman, On the Street Where You Live). Or how historically we move from drones to atonality but now we’ve come full circle in serious Western music with prizewinning pieces that are completely tonal. Thanks for your inspiration

That would be awesome. Music history is nothing like that convenient linear expansion of ‘complexity’ but it would make for a fascinating exercise. (Check out Hook Tools for a valiant effort with pop music). I will do my bit given time.
