Scale of the Day: E Flat Mixolydian no 4 1% wide
The E Flat Mixolydian no 4 1% wide Scale. This one poses an amusing cognitive test as it is deliberately and systematically "out of tune" (those 12 cent sharp octaves never get old for my ears - that extreme consonance knocked just off of that easy 2/1 harmonic ratio). Yet the ears can make out harmonic functions and identities through the "out of tune" haze.
