Microtonal Music is music using more than 12 tones per octave. I compose music using Csound and a preprocessor I wrote in Turbo Pascal. I post small updates as the compositions are being created, and a few final versions once I'm done. I strive towards music that could be played if we had the instruments capable of playing the notes. Think of it as "fake but accurate".

Then back to the G minor to Ab major. Of course they are not really those keys. They are taken from the scale pictured here:
The title is taken from a picture I took Sunday evening on the deck looking up at the wonderful blue spring sky. It's been hidden above the clouds since about September of last fall, and the clouds parted for a nice weekend, before returning this morning. Note the stick in the crow's beak. They've been building a nest in the trees furiously.
