Ibrahim Maalouf plays a four-valve trumpet — most just have three. The extra valve, attached to the button a trumpeter pushes down, allows the Lebanese musician to play quarter-tones — the notes between notes that characterize Arabic “makams.”

"The makams are scales and modes with quarter-tones and three quarter-tones intervals," Maalouf says. "This is something that you cannot find in Occidental music."

Maalouf credits his father, the renowned Lebanese classical trumpeter Nassim Maalouf, with the innovation.

"This trumpet that he invented is really pure genius. He invented the only Arabic instrument in which you blow, that allows you to play all modes, all scales, in all the tonalities," Maalouf says. "This does not exist in Arabic music. It’s not only a trumpet that makes you play quarter-tones. He invented a way to blow in the instrument. He invented a new way to play the trumpet."…

The Fluid Piano.

A piano with possible microtonal alterations at every key.

Here is a visual comparison of the ‘microtonal’ scale we have been using on our recordings. Our guitars have 16 tones tempered to the octave as opposed to the standard 12 tones in western music theory; allowing new tonal and harmonic possibilities.

Sometimes I think there is no interest in microtonal music. It is true I love Bach’s work, but I don’t feel the necessity to question it.

However I do feel like trying out something new. That motivated me to create microtonal tunings. I have composed some pieces but today I ran into something brilliant.

This is “Microtonal Steam Machine” by Shleed, also known as Ashley Dolan from Dundalk, Ireland. Thank God it is not musique concrète!

On a similar note to Bruce Sterling’s post, I’m going to a performance of one of Harry Partch’s plays tonight; Delusion of the Fury. Partch’s music was almost never performed even in his lifetime because, aside from being against any kind of cultural institutions (He voluntarily spent 15 years as a hobo), his music was completely invented from scratch.

He designed his own tuning system, a 43-tone scale based on ratios and speech patterns, he built the musical instruments to play them, and insisted that musicians must perform with their whole bodies in a kind of primitivist physical theatre that he devised (not shown above). This whole process is only haphazardly documented, partly because he didn’t want to BECOME an establishment, and probably because he made loads of stuff up as he went along.

Delusion of the Fury has only been staged three times, once when he wrote it, once in 2007 by a Japanese company, and now. And even that is miraculous, given the work and research required to recreate it.

What is Mugham?

Mugham is meter free. There is no time signature in mugham. Freed from the constraints of an overt beat, the performer of mugham must learn how to ’place’ each note in the musical sequence composing a mugham melody. It is as if the very substrate of the fourth dimension Time has been alternately compressed and stretched according to an unknown law. Just as the specific pitch of a microtone must be intended in order to have its effect or otherwise just sound out of tune, the moment the note is actually played must be intended with great exactitude and care. This is the secret of mugham. It can only be played intentionally, and the more intent, the greater the effect.

The third feature is the unexpectedness of the sequence of the notes in a given scale. The performer of mugham must learn how to overcome his or her natural tendency to play the melodies made of notes in logical sequences. Just at the moment when one might expect a particular note to ’complete’ the phrase, something else takes place that grabs the attention, and then it happens again, and again, and again. The effect is to find one’s attention so involved in the act of following the flow of unexpected tones as the melody unfolds. That is what gives mugham its lift, and takes the listener airborne. For connoisseurs of mugham, the achievement of a master is in the sublety, the nuance and micronuance of the timing and placement of the unmetered notes. The musician must intuitively know how to set each note in a ’phrase’, and each ’phrase’ in a ’sentence’. He must know and at the same time intend. One of the demands of the convoluted melodic lines in mugham is that there really is no other way to play them; they must be played with great intent.

Mus2 is a music application designed for the notation of microtonal works and Turkish maqam music. Tasks that require cumbersome workarounds in other notation software are extremely easy to accomplish in Mus2.

Microtonal
Mus2 has been designed to make it easy to work with non-12-TET tunings and pitch systems, such as 53-TET used in Turkish music.
In Mus2 you have complete freedom to define what pitches the lines and spaces of a staff represent—in absolute frequencies or in cents and as rationals, relative to the first pitch of a scale. Moreover, a scale can have any number of pitches.

Custom Accidentals
Import symbols from vector graphics and music fonts into Mus2 to create your own accidentals.
Not only can you easily adjust the layout and musical meaning of these symbols, you can also use them with notes and in key signatures just like any other accidental.
For a quick start, Mus2 comes withquartertone symbols and accidentals used in Turkish classical and folk music.

Intonationally Correct Playback
Hear your score performed by sampled acoustic and electronic instruments in any tuning. Mus2 understands and plays back the articulations, ornaments, dynamic markings and other symbols in your score.
The polyphony (number of simultaneous notes) limitation commonly found in other MIDI-based microtonal solutions does not exist in Mus2. When you do need the sound processing capabilities of other music software, simply export your score as a MIDI, Wave or AIFF file.

Microtonal MIDI Recording
Connect a keyboard or any other MIDI-compatible instrument and record music in any tuning. You can create key mappings for your tunings to assign each key to an arbitrary pitch and, thanks to Mus2’s microtonal sampler, get real-time intonationally accurate playback.
Once you’re done recording and editing with the built-in sequencer, simply copy the recorded passage and paste it onto a staff.

Simple Workflow
All the notation tools in Mus2 are in the toolstrip at the left edge of the screen. The toolstrip prevents visual clutter by showing the options that apply to the currently selected tool only.
To add a symbol to the page, choose it from the toolstrip and click on the page—the symbol is automatically placed, and overall layout updated as necessary.
You can use Mus2 with the same familiar interface and features in Windows and Mac OS X.
