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.
An addendum to the Bibliography for Ancient Greece and Rome is available on the “Antiquity” page (“Bibliography > Modality > Antiquity“), and comprises over 180 entries for modern commentaries. This completes the previous bibliography (on the same page) for the sources of the music of the Antiquity.
A new bibliography, Sources of Greek and Roman Modality, has been added today: the bibliography for the modern commentaries will soon be available on our site.
