Scale of the Day: E Flat Octotonic-2 no 1
The E Flat Octotonic-2 no 1 Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. The subtractive process makes for a 7-note "octotonic" scale that - on piano at least - sits under the fingers like a Mixolydian with a raised second and augmented fourth. That Mixolydian-ness is cognitively noticeable.
