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.
