As you can read on my About page, an epogdous in numbers (the ratio 9/8) is a whole tone in music. 9/8 is also one of Debussy’s favourite time signature (Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, Claire de lune, etc.). Even if the notational convention is not properly a geometrical ratio, 9/8 is a very strange meter to me. Nine-eighths time divides the measure into three parts of three quavers each, making it into a triple meter. But the same time signature can divide the measure into different parts, making it even into fractional beats (e.g. 4/4+1/8) resulting in music with an extremely irregular rhythmic feel. Take notes composers! ;]
