(English) A new bibliography  for “Microtonal” Music and “Microtones” has been added today as a complement to the “Temperament and Tuning”  Bibliography previously published on NEMO-Online.

Some references to Japanese music, due to its close relation to contemporary Western Music are included.

NEMO-Online has published this new bibliography of Musical Scales, Acoustics, Temperament and Tuning. It is intended as a  complement to other specialized biographies also published by NEMO-Online, and is not exhaustive. It mainly includes references to ethnomusicological debates on the problematics  of the scale, instrumental tuning and  perception of  intervals. Music perception is temporarily restricted  to topics directly relevant to scale or temperament.
