The Monochord: A Philosophical Instrument [Risograph]

The Monochord: A Philosophical Instrument [Risograph], by Brian Cotnoir


Risograph (13.5cm x 10.5cm closed - 29cm x 43cm open): Limited to 200 copies.


The Monochord is not a musical instrument but a philosophical instrument used by Pythagoras, Euclid, Quintilianus, Harry Partch, etc.  to explore the underlying structure of the cosmos through the study of Harmonics. This little zine provides an overview of the theories but as important it provides instructions on building a monochord and some exercises and charts with which to begin study and practice.
