See Clarence Barlow (aka Klarentz Bahlo)'s "Bus journey to Parametron:  
(all about Çogluotobüsişletmesi)", published as an issue of the Feedback  
Papers (Cologne).  It is the record of a research program leading to a  
composition — thus more speculative than analytic music theory — and the  
writing style is unorthodox (and sometimes very funny), but he does  
address exactly your question in a large number of metres.
