Scale of the Day: E Square-root-of-2-axis, Construct No. 2, Lydian Mode
The E Square-root-of-2-axis, Construct No. 2, Lydian Mode Scale as one would find it on any conventionally tuned, equal tempered instrument. A harmonic space that draws upon the square-root-of-2-axis within an octave-space is essentially binary. Construct number 2 produces the same scale as construct number 1, and each is self-inverting. This scale introduces the concept of the second construct into the "Scale of the Day" cycle - which will appear with more frequency in the days ahead.
