“Our show today is the 11 equal divisions of the octave edition.”

Oddmusic Radio Shower last night, February 16, 2011, featured the xenharmonic tuning system 11 equal divisions of the octave or 11EDO or 11-tone equal temperament.  Special guests Zoe, Yael and Will, participants in the Microtonal Design Seminar at School for Designing a Society (with radio hosts Jacob and Andrew) formed an 11edo band for the occasion — probably the only one in existence today!

You can listen online here.

INVITATION: Write or find an 11-syllable text to set to music.  Associate with each syllable a unique degree of the 11EDO scale.  Give it a desirable rhythm and call it an 11-tone row.  We are collecting examples of this unusual form for inclusion in an 11EDO ZINE!
