Scale of the Day: C Sharp Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Ionian Mode
The C Sharp Pythagorean Octotonic-2 - Ionian Mode - Scale. The 4/3 just perfect fourth is the only utonal interval in this scale. Which is why this scale is said to be in "Ionian Mode." The otonal spelling of the other intervals necessitates the double sharps (and frequency ratios featuring some relatively large integers).
