The Bohlen-Pierce Symposium
First symposium on the Bohlen-Pierce scale, Boston, March 7 – 9, 2010
Mathews: The Early History from 1982 to 1988 of John Pierce’s evolution of his version of the Bohlen-Pierce scale.


Most of what I plan to cover comes from two publications–”Theoretical and experimental explorations of the Bohlen-Pierce scale” J. Acoust. Soc. Am 84(4) October 1988 and  “Intonation sensitivity for traditional and non traditional chords” J. Acoust. Soc. Am 75(3), March 1984.
