Scale of the Day: E Lydian augmented 5 mapped to the 3/2
The E Lydian augmented 5 mapped to the 3/2 Scale. Despite the augmented fifth degree, this scale is compressed to fit within the 3/2 just perfect fifth. This kind of cross-purpose appeals to my (twisted?) sensibilities. Cognitively, there is little trace of the augmented tonality as the unfamiliarity of the 3/2-as-harmonic-equivalence pulls the ears into an unusual harmonic territory.
