PLAINSOUND MUSIC EDITION

Double Horn in Bb and F / Bb-Horn : Tuning in Just Intonation


valves 1, 2, 3* (custom-built) are tuned to rational proportions (2/15, 1/15, 4/15) of the respective open horns length producing, in various combinations,
two Utonal Series of fundamental pitches with wavelengths in the proportions 15 : 16 : 17 : 18 : 19 : 20 : 21 : 22
with the two horns tuned a just perfect fourth (3:4) apart

notated AT SOUNDING PITCH


using the Extended Helmholtz-Ellis JI Pitch Notation
accidentals designed by Marc Sabat and Wolfgang von Schweinitz, 2004

* Alternately, the normal 3rd valve may be used, tuned to the proportion 3/15, so that the valve combination 1+2 and 3 are synonymous.
In this case, the undertone tuning 22 will not be available, and the fingerings indicated for undertones 19 - 22 apply instead to 18 - 21
