non-just non-equal / njne

[Joe Monzo]

A tuning which transcends both the small-integer ratios of just-intonation, and the logarithmically equal "steps" or divisions of Equal Temperament.

The well-temperaments may be considered a subset of these, although in modern usage these nj-net scales are also frequently non-octave.

For examples, see Jonathan Harvey's 1984 classic Mortuos Plango Vivos Voco, Jean Claude Risset's classic computer piece Inharmonique, and many pieces by Brian McLaren.
