Scale of the Day: F 11, Square-root-of-2, Construct #1 - Lydian Mode
The F 11, Square-root-of-2, Construct #1 - Lydian Mode - Scale. This "simple" scale features an exquisitely beautiful 'dissonance' with a what sounds like a major seventh just over a quarter-tone sharp beating against that octave and nothing else. (Here it's actually spelled out as an octave that is 48.68 cents flat.) The 11/8 "tritone" is added to the 600-cent Square-root-of-2 "tritone" and falls just short of a full octave.
