A microtonal industrial sketch.

Microtonal music or microtonality is either music employing the use of microtones (intervals smaller than a semitone, also known as a "microinterval") or any music using intervals not found in the customary Western tuning of twelve equal intervals per octave.

The microtuning employed here is a 21 note per octave scale known as "Tonos-21 PIS" (Diatonic Perfect Immutable System) where the tone ratios are:

8/7, 16/13, 4/3, 32/21, 32/19, 16/9, 2/1, 32/15, 16/7, 32/13, 8/3, 64/21, 64/19, 32/9, 4/1.

This tuning was applied to the U-He Bazille modular synthesizer.

The track also features the Regrader VST plugin for obliterating echoes.
