Description

This paper deals with the replication of various scales in Eastern musical culture, including Makham scales, Melakarta scales and certain microtonal scales throughout Europe through the new instrument Octo invented in 2010 by Liburn Jupolli.

The study shows how the 3 different tonal structures within the Octo neck make the replication of a wide variety of instruments in one practical setup and continues to research how these possibilities can combine to make new hybrid scales.

The study also analyses the replication of Western microtonal scales of 20th century composers.
