Septimus: Yes, but the current ratio is 3/2 to define a fifth, and on from there. I'm postulating a new musical basis, not necessarily constrained by the current pattern of wwhwwwh, based on 1:1.618 and tempered for continuity.
According to my calculations, it would have 9 scales, and I have yet to see how many notes. But 9 scales is starting to freak me out a little. More on that when I finish my calculations.
I'm gonna ramble for a second... It's not as organic as regular music, in that the harmonics wouldn't necessarily jive, but it's mathematically significant, so theoretically should sound good. I wish I had a place to go where I could test this out...
Anyway, if you think outside of the box, as it were, and discard your 12step chromatic scale based on the circle of fifths, which is based on the ratio of 3/2, and instead think about a new circle based on Phi, it's interesting.
