UNDERTONE  OVERTONE
The Pythagorean table (Lambdoma diagram) is
depicted in its actual proportions of division (horizontally) and multiplication
(vertically) the beginning tone 1/1 is D. The shape of the subsequent
multiples of the beginning which normally fall along the diagonal in diamond
shapes change from a rectangle to a square to a vertical rectangle 3/3 to ever
lengthening vertical rectangles which eventually become longer and longer lines.
The circular lines become as peeled off layers of the undertone vertical
bands. If the grid were set up on the curvilinear format it would take the shape
of the upper right portion, the beginning tone in this case initiating the
sequence at F. The coordinate axes X and Y curve as opposed to the coordinated
axes of X1 and Y1 .
