Scale of the Day: A Flat Lydian mapped to the Square-root-of-2
The A Flat Lydian mapped to the Square-root-of-2 Scale. The standard Lydian proportionality cut in half to fill a 600-cent "tritone."
This completes another cycle of scales - the 23rd such cycle since the "Scale of the Day" began. Tomorrow the next cycle begins with an additive Ionian Scale. Included in the cycle ahead will be the first audio example of a subtractive scale, a 5, 3 Dorian, a 'Construct #2' within the Pythagorean system as well as a slight increase in the number of audio examples per cycle.
