Scale of the Day: C Octotonic-1 no 2 mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The C Octotonic-1 no 2 mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. The subtractive variant on this Octotonic leaves an almost Dorian-esque symmetry of two quarter-tones on either side of the tonic. However, this symmetry is broken up by the 150-cent gap between the first and second degrees when compared to the 50-cent leading tone ascending toward the root.
