Scale of the Day: E Flat Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Lydian Mode - mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The E Flat Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Lydian Mode - mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. If you're anything like me, you lose a lot of sleep thinking about this scale. It's actually a subtle twist on the 8-notes-to-the-tritone scale that shades toward formerly otonal scale members with their cents value cut in half. It's otherworldly, disorienting, and makes few allusions toward tonal language.
