Just Intonation

In a nutshell, Just Intonation is a theory of music, developed by Harry Partch and a handful of others, which makes use of scales composed of tones, the frequencies of which are related by small integer ratios. This might sound complicated, but compared with the standard scale, which is composed of tones related by powers of the twelfth root of two (an irrational number), it's actually pretty simple.
