Hi,
Why there is no interval between P11 and P12? (P8+Tritone)
If to be more specific, why there is no name for that interval?
I couldn't find any answer for that...

Thanks!
James

The tritone can also be called an augmented 4th or a diminished 5th.  In classical, it's often called one or the other based on whether it resolves by expanding or contracting.  Also, if it's spelled correctly (= its notes are given the proper letter names) then you can count through the alphabet to determine if it's a 4th or a 5th.  C to F# is an augmented fourth because we can count four letters: C D E F.  C to Gb is a diminished 5th because we can count five letters: C D E F G.

The augmented 4th and diminished 5th are "enharmonic," meaning two names for the same sound.

A "perfect octave + a tritone" can be called that, or it can be called an "augmented 11th" or it can be called a "diminished 12th."  In jazz parlance, it can be called a "sharp 11" or a "flat 12."  Sometimes it's called a "tritone," "augmented 4th," or "diminished 5th" even though it's bigger than an octave.  It's just called loosely by its simple interval name.

So there is such an interval and it does have various names.
