FOWC with Fandango — Tone


It’s December 27, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “tone.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    I spoke a single word
    It’s tone did cause a flap
    A word spoke in a whisper, but
    To mouth was like a slap

    Fabrizione is an oboist
    who has a magnificent tone
    i’d love to make contact
    and visit him
    but he doesn’t have a phone

    Without going too deep into tuning systems and such, the scale to which the ensemble is tuned is called pelog degung: a specific version of the classic pelog scale, a seven-pitch and non-equidistant tuning system, in which the intervals between the seven pitches are different in size (from 90 to 400). The specificity of the pelog degung comes from the fact that, instead of being a seven-tone scale, some of its intervals are more similar to the salendro scale, which has five pitches. For this reason, pelog degung fits with salendro gamelan instruments (such as Cirebonese gamelan).
