The Microtonal Guitar | Workshop Erasmus 8-9-10 ottobre 2019

The Microtonal Guitar
Prof. Jürgen Ruck and Dr. Hansjörg Ewert

This workshop is based on research and experiences, which have been made in the context of the International Summer School GuitarPlus Microtonal, which took place in August 2017 in Wuerzburg.

In this intercultural project with participants from Basel, Istanbul, Aarhus, Helsinki and Wuerzburg, we tried to explore the potential of the guitar with movable frets and try it out practically in different directions: For example by performing old music in meantone tunings (music by John Dowland or Luys de Narváez), Turkish maqams with their typical microtonal scales and (last but not least) new music especially commissioned for/with the “Microtonal Guitar”.

The guitar with movable frets, as developed first by the German guitar builder Vogt as a tool to improve the tempered tuning on guitar and later improved by Prof. Tolgahan Çoğulu at the Istanbul Technical University, allows realizing non-tempered tunings in a very flexible way. We will bring at least two such instruments with us, which can be observed and tried out.

The workshop subjects can start from the physical fundaments of microtonality, the history of microtonal guitars up to examples of its use in old music with old and new music (at GuitarPlus 2017 we had 12 first performances of new compositions with microtonal guitar). Also other possibilities to perform microtonality on guitar will be referred to and discussed.
The present Erasmus project avails itself of the collaboration with the guitar and lute classes of the Florence Conservatory and takes up the Conference "Music and science: Il Fronimo di Vincenzo Galilei, 1568-2018" of the Museo Galileo in Florence in 2018
