Here you find general overview information about Tonalibus, Spiritualibus and Fidibus, as well as about Ulrico, the creator of Tonalibus. Plus there is a glossary and a collection of Tonalibus images.
Tonalibus, the realization of Anchored Harmony and Tonalities, emerged remarkably fast. In early spring 2020, the five-part course series Harmonic and Tonality Fundamentals and the catalogue of anchored tonalities came about. Then came the Harmony and Tonalities Review, Preview, and Brief. Finally, into early summer, this website took shape with a growing collection of personal sound samples, with the Spiritualibus blog and the Fidibus shop.
This website aims to continually improve and become more user friendly. Since late 2020, besides in in its original English, this entire site is also available in German, French, and Italian. 2021 brought additional tonalities and categories into the catalogue. Plus new sound samples, blog postings, insights, etc. keep appearing on this expanding site.
“From ancient times until today, the names are not to be dispensed with in order to survey all things. How do I know the nature of all things? Precisely through them.”
— from verse 21 of the Tao Te Ching 道德经 by Lao Tzu (1972 Diederichs edition, p. 61)
