Microtone means any interval smal1 er than a minor second. While we might assume that microtones are a very recent discovery, they actually were used in the music of ancient Greece and were mathematically de fined by the theorists of that time. 3 Though in most cases the microtones employed have been quarter-tones-that is, an intelval half the size of a minor 2nd-other microtonal interval s have been used as well. A number of methods have been derived for specifying microtones in musical nota- tion.

In his Chamber Concerto (1925), Alban Berg notated quarter-tones by placing a "z" (for "Zwischenton") on the stem. The "z" means the performer must raise the tone if the musical line is ascending chromatically and lower it if it is descending. 2 (1937). Other methods have typically involved variants of the traditional system of acciden- tals. 2 (1968). In his system, an arrow is attached to a fiat, sharp, or natural sign, pointing up or down. The resulting intervals are no larger than quarter-tones and may be smaller, the precise size being determined partly by context and partly by the choice of the performer.
