Scale of the Day: F Ionian augmented 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The F Ionian augmented 5 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. Note how the augmented second between the fourth and fifth degrees compresses to an interval 150-cents wide (not surprising, given the fact that 150-cents is one half of a 300-cent augmented second). That three-quartertone expanse makes for a wide leap in the context of this quarter-tone scale.
