The Hits Keep On Comin'

Just got a note from my friend Stephen Taylor. It appears that microtonalist Erv Wilson has left our mortal coil. Erv was that intriguing inventor that clearly had an inner voice that spoke strongly, and and soul that listened carefully.

Stephen put together a kind of trippy overview of his work which you can check out here:

A group of people also collaborated on an iOS app that provides access to many of the Wilson-driven microtonal explorations with some very helpful diagrams. You can check that out here:

Microtonal music is an area that few choose to explore, but those that do often find a new voice for their work. If this hasn't been an area of interest for you, maybe you can consider this a gentle nudge in that direction...

  1. R.I.P Ever Wilson. Thanks for the nudge. The Vimeo video is mindblowing and inspirational. Time to dig into microtuning tables with Zebra 2 and get to know the coll object in Max it seems.
