    I think this was a fun idea, if you can develop it, it will be fun for sure.

    In response to post above, micro jazz has been growing slowly but surely

    Good job on the article! :yesway:

    Just for discussion's sake, though, there have been at least a couple of microtonal jazz albums to have been produced before, although nothing quite like this, so I don't think it's accurate to call this the first all microtonal jazz album.

    An impressive 17EDO/12EDO polytonality track including microtonal guitar and vocals, good video.
    From album https://feedingfingers.bandcamp.com/album/do-owe-harm
    https://www.feedingfingers.net/
    "Justin Curfman returns with his 6th Feeding Fingers studio album, 'Do Owe Harm'. An exploration of polytonal / microtonal / xenharmonic music facilitated by the utilization of tunable analog synthesizers, quarter-tone guitars, fretless instruments, acoustic / electronic hybrid percussion, micro-intervallic wind instruments & vocals abiding cautiously within the notes between the notes.

    Each song on 'Do Owe Harm' was written upon a foundation of microtonality and superimposed with a surface layer of familiar equal temperament in an effort to synthesize the two into a natural state of polytonality. Curfman hopes that you won't even notice."

    I've been following Stickman for nearly 20 years - he was a big inspiration for me picking up microtones in the first place.

    You guys probably know this stuff, but...
    I believe the "Brain" to whom he refers is Brian Deckebach, a luthier, and you guys probably know "Starrett" is Professor John Starrett. Stickman played with John Starrett's band early on. They did a couple 19-EDO blues/rock songs together in the late 1990's.

    Definitely a cool video. :yesway:

    This was enjoyable

    Lot of micro tonal music seems to be weird for the sake of being weird.
    While the micro tonality was quiet noticeable, I enjoyed it musically.
    Apart from Sevish and very few , I can't say that for most microtonal artists.
