If you go looking for interesting microtonal music, post your favorite finds here! It may take a few listens to warm up to it, it took me a couple weeks of casual listening until it no longer sounded "out of tune":

Any thoughts? Is this stuff old news for the musical veterans here?

Here's an interview with John Catler, who makes the necks pictured above. Well worth listening through to the end, as he explains it fairly simply for those of us who are musical sub-literates (interview begins 6min in):
