Scale of the Day: E Flat Lydian minor 2 no 5 mapped to the Triative
The E Flat Lydian minor 2 no 5 mapped to the Triative Scale. The name says it all. It's an equal tempered altered/subtractive Lydian stretched out to fit the just perfect 12th of the 3/1. I realize that the diminished fourth spelling between the fourth and fifth degrees is atrocious. But this is just one of many scales where standard notation begins to deteriorate and I'd argue that proper enharmonic spellings in equal tempered systems is a moot point anyway.
