Scale of the Day: F 7, 3 Construct No. 1, Lydian Mode - reflected into the first pool
The F 7, 3 Construct No. 1, Lydian Mode - reflected into the first pool - Scale. These "construct no. x" line of scales are culled from a procedure that is completely different from the altered/subtracted/retuned diatonic modes or transitional scales (whole-tone, octotonic or chromatic). Here, the first construct of a 7, 3 scale yeilds the 21/16 frequency ratio (21 = 7 * 3, dividing that by 16 places it within the octave) and the reflection gives us the 184.70-cent 1.113 - which is to 21/16 what 21/16 is to 2.
