Spiritual Tuning consists of the Pitch Reference Frequency and of pure intervals, whose frequency ratios are the quotients of natural numbers. All is based on 0 and 1. Spiritual Tuning begins with 1 Hz.The Spiritual Tuning System consists of
An octave means the doubling of an frequency.
Row of octaves:
The Pitch Reference Frequencies are always
and bear reference to the traditonal 12 keynotes of western scales.
The second reference frequency could be 2 Hz.
Because 2 Hz belongs to the octavation of 1 Hz,
3 Hz is the next reference frequency for a pure scale.
4 Hz belongs to the octavation of 1 Hz. Next is 5 Hz and so on.....
Spiritual Tuning builds on scientific pitch, first proposed in 1713 by Joseph Sauveur. It is an absolute concert pitch standard which is based on middle C (C4) being set to 256 Hz rather than 261.62 Hz as in the common A440 pitch standard. I have expanded scientific pitch to the spiritual tuning system.
C is a symbol, which stands for the first note of a musical scale. C has no information about the real pitch. The frequenz of C is the important thing. We say: C has a frequency reference of 1 HZ. That is precise! The Concert pitch (A4) is 426,67 Hz. Another example: A is the first note. A has a frequency reference of 27 HZ. The Concert pitch (A4) is 432 Hz.
Concert pitch refers to the pitch reference to which a group of musical instruments are tuned for a performance. Concert pitch may vary from ensemble to ensemble, and has varied widely over musical history. In Scientific Tuning the concert pitch varies according to the reference frequency.
