Charles Meerens, Instruction élémentaire du calcul musical et philosophie de la musique provides the following information regarding the 1858 commission "to investigate the means of establishing in France a uniform musical diapason, to fix on a standard of sonority which might serve as an invariable type, and to point out the measures to be passed in order to secure its adoption and preservation":

The Commission gathered tuning forks made in 1858 with the following pitches from European cities and concert halls: Brussels 456 vps, London 455, Théatre royal in Brussels 453, Marseille and Lille 452, St. Petersburg and Berlin 453, Milan 450, Prague 450, Leipzig 449, Munich and Paris 448, Pest and the Hague 446, Turin, Weimar, and Wuerttemberg 445, Brunswick 444, and Toulouse 442. They also received six older tuning forks. In 1854 tuning forks from Stuttgart, Gotha, and Vienna all sounded at 443 vps. A tuning fork in St. Petersburg from 1796 made 436 vps, while Mozart’s tuning fork in Berlin sounded at 422, and the Grand Opera of Paris tuned to 404 vps in 1699.

found a wild book called Invention of Hysteria: Charcot and the Photographic Iconography of the Salpêtrière

Catalepsy provoked by the sound of a tuning fork

Image

Somniation with an artificial contracture

'First, simple tuning forks producing delicate resonances: “I have these two hysterics take a seat on the sound box of a large tuning fork. As soon as I set the fork vibrating, you can see that they fall into catalepsy. When we stop the vibrations, they fall into somnambulism. If we begin new vibrations with the tuning fork, the catalepsy reappears. Is this strange fact, noted by Monsieur Vigouroux, due to the excitation of auditory sensitivity, or that of sensitivity in general? We don’t know” Since we don’t know, let’s dig deeper, induce more responses: let’s place a tuning fork vibrating at G-3 near a hysteric’s left ear. What do we find? —that, if the young woman sticks out her tongue at us, it irresistibly veers to that same side and remains there, contractured, “hard to the touch, swollen, bluish, . . . for 55 to 80 seconds”'

susan sontag, on forks:

There’s a hesitation about the fork. You hold own the food with the fork in your left hand while you cut it with the knife held in your right. Then -if you’re not only right-handed but also American- you put down the knife, then transfer the fork to your right hand an send the speared morsel up to your mouth.

Grownups throw knives. Children throw spoons. Nobody (I think) would throw a fork. It may be four-thirds of a toy trident, but it can’t be thrown as one. It wouldn’t arrive, spear like, tines first.

The weight is in the handle.

The fork as emblem -emblem of the real. Jasper Johns, explaining something about “my general development so far” said: “That is to say, I find it more interesting to use a real fork as a painting than it is to use a painting as a real fork”.

What would a fork that isn’t real look like?

The fork is the youngest of the three great eating utensils. The Last Supper was set with knives and spoons only. No forks either at the wedding feast in Cana.

It made its appearance when the knife and spoon were well established. Invented in Italy, thought a foppish pretension when it arrived in England in the early seventeenth century: a set of gold “Italian forkes” presented to Elizabeth I by the Venetian ambassador were put on display at Westminster; she never used them.

The introduction of that vital implement, for a long time despised as effete, enabled people to distance themselves from the eating process by avoiding manual contact with the food.

The principle of fastidiousness. New forms of distance, new forms of delicacy.

New rules of finicky behavior at table proliferated. People were expected to manipulate an increasingly complicated battery of utensils.

It seemed hard, setting up and keeping this distance.

Now we take forks for granted.
