"To truly appreciate the enormous musical potential of rational tuning as composers, interpreters, and, most importantly, as listeners, it is crucial to be immersed in it practically in order to connect theory with sound. After all, just intonation does not require theoretical minutiae—as elegant as they may be—to justify its beauty and musical value; it is already intuitively ingrained in the way humans hear. An understanding of ratios, cents, commas, etc., merely provides tools to better comprehend and compare what is heard (śruti) as well as to imagine, invent, and develop what could be heard." —Thomas Nicholson and Marc Sabat, Fundamental Principles of Just Intonation and Microtonal Composition (2018)
