The Musical World Beyond Twelve.
Studio31+ is a collective of musicians, researchers, composers and instrument builders. Their common interest are instruments and music with more than 12 pitches per octave. Their approach is mainly inspired by historical concepts from the Renaissance period, such as the arciorgano and archicembalo by Nicola Vicentino or the clavemusicum omnitonum by Vito Trasuntino. The Studio31 collective researches and documents the context of these ideas and applies them within artistic projects.
