Scale of the Day: G Ionian no 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The G Ionian no 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. The 200-cent "hole" that lies between the 250-cent and 450-cent member pitches gives this scale its character. That, along with the close proximity of the 550-cent pitch relative to the 600-cent "tonic" keeps this one from sounding like a de-tuned chromatic scale. That 550-cent member pitch also has incredible gravity toward resolving to the tonic.
