Sept-Oct 2023 Tonalibus update

This Sept-Oct 2023 Tonalibus update highlights the conclusion of Playlist K and the creation of Playlist L and Sept-Oct 2023 sounds. Further, it touches on the development of Individual tonality. This new Fidibus offer in the making will be an aid to select personal tonalities to form one’s own compositions and eventually personal sound mantras. Finally, this update mentions some issues with the Tonalibus website.

Individual tonality selection development update

Sept-Oct 2023 Tonalibus update

To systematically select personal tonalities and eventually aid in forming one’s own personal sound mantras, Individual tonalities is forming in the Fidibus shop. The previous update announced Sound as mantra, Fundamental pitch, and Chromatic pitches. Now the first option under Individual tonalities, Harmonic base, is complete for all twelve chromatic pitches. And the format of the first of two steps of Individual tetratonality to select one of eight root or tetratonalities is in fine-tuning and accessible as draft only. Stay tuned for more to come.

Update on Tonalibus website issues

Sept-Oct 2023 Tonalibus update

At times, the Tonalibus site, supposedly its multi-lingual plugin, consumes excessive CPU and memory from its hosting server. In late September, this caused CPU errors that impacted the site’s database and made it unavailable for a few days until the excellent tech-support of Cyon, the hosting provider, was able to remove the blockage. But issues remain with the translations plugin and still impact the response time of translated pages on the Tonalibus site. Thank you for your patience!

May you prosper and live in peace and freedom!
