Scale of the Day: G Sharp Aeolian no 4 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The G Sharp Aeolian no 4 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. This one is an almost-chromatic sequence through the tritone with a gaping 200-cent gap between the only two quarter-tones in this scale. One could focus on this "chromatic ambiguity," but there's also the challenge of treating the 600-cent tritones as harmonic equivalents. These remapped subtractive scales create some interesting harmonic challenges.
