Scale of the Day: A Phrygian no 4 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The A Phrygian no 4 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. Note the wide 250-cent interval between the third and fourth degrees (where the missing "fourth" leaves a void). Within the quarter-tone scale context that 250-cent gap is huge and adds an interesting color to this harmony.
