Scale of the Day: E Flat Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Ionian Mode
The E Flat Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Ionian Mode - Scale. The 16/9 minor seventh is the only utonal member of this scale. And this qualifies this tuning as "Ionian Mode." Overall, this is an oddly "bright" intonation for a scale that is often associated with ambiguity and transition in tonal contexts. Speaking of ambiguity and transition - I find myself blogging from the left coast for the time being. The transition to Baltimore has not yet been completed.
