(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. Western musicology classifies intervals smaller than half of a tone as microtones. Other cultures differ. This is a comprehensive bibliography of Western works on Western music. Some references to Japanese music, due to its close relation to contemporary Western Music are included. Please refer to Huygens-Fokker’s Tuning and Temperament extensive bibliography.

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.
New specialised bibliographies are available on CERMAA’s site: the first bibliography published to date is the `Ūd Bibliography, to be found under “Bibliography > `Ūd Bibliography”. It comprises a reasoned choice of references on the `Ūd, to be further enriched with time. The second bibliography specialises in the Systematist period.
