Discography

This list contains microtonal/xenharmonic/non-12 music on CD only and no works in 12-note just intonation, 12-note in historical temperaments or ethnic traditional music. Xenharmonic is a term invented by Ivor Darreg for musical phenomena that sound different from having 12 tones in an octave, and derives from the Greek xenos = strange, foreign. The term e.t. stands for equal temperament or equal tuning.

Links to homepages of composers and groups are included. When there is more than one link to the same person, it refers to a different page.

In 1999 the CD 50 jaar Stichting Huygens-Fokker was brought out. You can order it here.
