Discoveries Along The Pitch Continuum

I am now at a stage where I am finding melodies and harmonies along the pitch continuum that 'ring true' with me. I have discovered realms of emotion and consciousness through pitch-flexible music that I never reached when limited to 12 notes. When all possibilities of pitch are integrated, the music opens its embrace to include all sound, all emotion, all feeling. Borders and judgments melt into a realm where all is accepted as part of the current manifestation of the creation. And then! It reaches full circle: equal temperament becomes a singular, beautiful symbol in 12 sections; another, equally viable system, integrated among the vast array of the world's musical cultures and another playground for humankind's endless genius and boundless creativity. For in the end, it is not the notes that we play, but our spirit, mind, and humanness that inform the music we make.
