OB-6 (24-TET/Parallel-12): "The Four and Twentieth Mystery"

Kris Lennox

"24-TET, here in a very different flavour. OB-6 sounds great. Video only shows a single layer (there are a number of recorded layers; video recording was of the chordal layer). Works like this take a very long time to create; writing in 24-TET in a multi-layered, chordal manner is complex - and inputting in standard MIDI/transposing in the mind to 24 is difficult.

However, I'd say it is worth the effort. Great sound; completely new harmonic world. Very, very unusual transitions - almost like drifting between two worlds/dimensions. Through the looking glass?

I'm very much looking forward to the day where a control surface (other than the black and whites) is developed that allows for real-time 24-TET performance. There are a few interesting contenders at present.

Also great to see microtonality/possibilities implemented on more synths of late ( this space...!).

More soon. Maybe not 24-TET for a few months or so (...writing in 24 can be borderline traumatic!) - but I'll certainly upload some material on some new toys in the coming weeks.

Here's a link to the track on SoundCloud (I set up a separate channel exclusively for my 24-TET material) -

All best/enjoy
