Common Tonalities is a project that explores Southeast Asian tuning systems and scales through modern music technologies for the creation of new music. We invite participants to a series of workshops, led by Khyam Allami, that focus on the subject of tuning and the cultural biases in music technologies, the practical analysis of tuning systems of Southeast Asian music based on published resources and archival recordings, and how to use them in various creative musical processes.
