Scale of the Day: D Sharp Locrian

Audio realization of the D Sharp Locrian Scale.

Locrian is the least commonly used of the seven diatonic "modes." It is also the darkest and the only one lacking a perfect fifth relative to the tonic - making traditional cadences to the root triad somewhat problematic. All of which makes the Locrian scale deeply appealing to my harmonically subversive instincts.
