Scale of the Day: E Flat Octotonic-1 no 2
The Octotonic-1 no 2 Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. Between the equal temperament and the missing second degree there's a nice ambiguity with the minor third/augmented second leading into the perfect fourth/augmented third. The half-step that follows into the tritone combined with the lack of perfect fifth gives this scale an interesting color.
