Kyle Gann in his article “Just Intonation Explained” mentions Terry Riley saying: “Western music is fast because it's not in tune” then he continues: “Equal temperament could be described as the musical equivalent to eating a lot of red meat and processed sugars and watching violent action films. The music doesn't turn your attention inward, it makes you want to go out and work off your nervous energy on something”.
