Sensi Visualizations


A Diagram of Sensi[5], [8], [11], and [19] with intervals named in relation to the L and s of Sensi[8]:

Note that X, M and Z are not standard, but d and A are; they are short for "diminished" and "augmented".

A Diagram relating the Sensi generator chain (horizontal axis) to the steps within the octave (vertical axis) for Sensi[8] and [11]:

A Diagram showing a layout for playing Sensi Temperament on an Isomorphic Keyboard:

sensi_isomorphic_layout.png
The darkest hexagons represent the same note (eg. C), but offset by octaves. The next-darkest hexagons show the notes of Sensi[5]. Imagine stepping from hex to hex as you move across the keyboard from left to right, landing only on the darkest and next-darkest hexes. The light red hexagons show additional notes needed to play Sensi[8]. The Large step of Sensi[8] is represented by a move straight down, so this pattern is a little more zig-zaggy than the pattern for Sensi[5]. Add the white hexes and you have Sensi[11]. The small step of Sensi[11] (indicated in the diagram as "c" for chroma), is represented by a move straight down and down-left. This pattern actually involves moving backward in the horizontal direction, and is therefore more zig-zaggy.
