Warped Cannon

Courtesy of fellow experimental musician Gino Robair, we have the “Warped Cannon” page, which features the Pachelbel's Canon in a wide variety of tunings. The MIDI files on the site present the canon performed not in variants of the traditional just and equal-tempered scales, but several rather odd tunings as well. Of particular interest to me was the the Bohlen-Pierce variation, using the Bohlen-Pierce tuning that I have discussed in previous posts. While some readers/listeners may find this variation a little difficult to listen to, and even disturbing when contrasted with the original, I actually find it quite inspiring. I am always interested to hear pieces done in this tuning ahead any future BP compositions of my own.

Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt: Vertical

For today’s combined Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt, we explore the theme of vertical with Luna. Certainly, vertical lines are part of the texture and geometry of our home, in some cases quite literally:

Luna is also quite lean and tall which is apparent when she stretches as in the previous photo, or poses on her pedistal:

There of course other numerous vertical lines in the space around her.


Weekend Cat Blogging #253 is co-hosted by LB and Breadhick at The Sour Dough and Othello and Salome.

Photo Hunt 208 is hosted by tnchick, with the theme of Vertical.

The Carnival of the Cats will be hosted by Nikita Cat at Meowsings of an Opinionated Pussycat.

And the friday ark is at the modulator.
