The gong kebyar style of Balinese gamelan music uses a pentatonic scale that has two (roughly) semitone intervals. -----Original Message----- From: AUDITORY Research in Auditory Perception [mailto:AUDITORY(at)LISTS.MCGILL.CA]On Behalf Of Roger Watt Sent: Friday, April 27, 2001 3:39 AM To: AUDITORY(at)LISTS.MCGILL.CA Subject: pentatonic scales Dear list I have a nagging notion that not all of the world's pentatonic scales are anhemitonic: some do have semitone intervals in them. The best reference I can find this morning is on p62 of Storr "Music and the Mind", but I'm sure somewhere I've got a long list of extant pentatonic scales. Perhaps someone else has this.
