App Store Description

Red Koto is a growing collection of tunings by Koto Virtuoso Chieko Mori. Red Koto can be used for tuning the Instrument by ear, for studying scales, or for playing with the different tunings. 

Each tuning refers to a composition by Chieko Mori, written especially for learning Koto Music at her "Koto Studio" school in Tokyo. 

Sounds are played both picked with the left hand and plucked with the right hand using ivory picks. 

On the left side of the screen the pitch for each string is shown. When touched, a triangle wave with the corresponding frequency is played until deselected.
The middle of the screen represents the 13 strings of the Koto, each string plays a plucked sound at the corresponding pitch.
To the right side the number of the string is shown in Japanese, touching each number produces a plucked sound.

The order of thee tunings can be re-arranged by long-pressing on a tuning in the list.


Except where noted differently, tunings are based on a root note of 442 Hertz.

Scores for the compositions based on the Red Koto tunings are available. Please contact for further information.
