Personal sounds, playlists, and a triple album
1) Tonalibus playlist F “So many colors of reality”
2) Tonalibus playlist G “Venturing far out and in”
3) Tonalibus playlist H “Roots, beginnings, and endings”
These three, including the new playlist H, are the foundation for the upcoming triple album “Tonalibus F, G, & H” that will easily exceed 25 pieces and 3½ hours of meditative music.
New sounds from the end of 2022 include:
“Embracing Ma” — Pro-Reg-Pro meditation
“Gitasa” — a family present for a present family
“Gitigota” — a first inversion pair experiment
“Never give up, let go completely” — a miracle of nature
“ॐ शान्तिः भक्ति ॐ — Ōṃ Śāntiḥ Bhakti Ōṃ” — contemplation
Playlist I “Step ahead into a new world” starts 2023 with “Pulse of an emerging blue heart” — first step into a new year (below).
A miracle of harmonic nature
The image shows two examples of the miracle of nature in action.
A miracle of harmonic nature is the tendency of regressive tonalities to convert themselves to their progressive equivalent. As such, the quart takes on the function of the fundamental. And the original fundamental turns into its fifth, the first and main harmonic in the series that is not an octave. (See harmonic series.)
January 2023 Tonalibus update of catalogued tonalities
The Tonalibus catalogue of anchored tonalities expands now to ninety distinct tonalities. Further, there is an ever growing number of derivatives that the catalogue lists in context, where relevant, but does not document in detail. Therefore, an overall revision and general refinement of the framework of the catalogue has been completed, while some new tonalities still wait to be individually documented in full detail. Below are some highlights of catalogue changes.
- Four new heptatonalities form the new partially anchored Reach tonality sub-group Locor / Cor.
- Six new extended pentatonality additions complete the sub-groups PentaNa and new PentaBlu.
- Pentatonalities now appear grouped into basic pentatonalities and extended pentatonalities.
- Besides TetraNa, further tetratonalities show up as derivatives. They are root tonalities and new tonality relations visuals cover most all the tonalities in the catalogue, except hexatonalities.
- Hexatonalities are not further expanded on, as they can largely be seen as mere derivatives.
- The list of Na tonalities slimmed down to include only prime Na(tural harmonics) tonalities.
- The overall Tonalibus tonalities listing by lower and upper tetrachord (below) expanded to over a hundred entries as it now includes also some relevant derivatives and root tetratonalities.
