The nonatonic modal family [2027, 3061, 1789, 1471, 2783, 3439, 3767, 3931, 4013] is the negative of the tritonic modal family [37, 641, 1033]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2027 is 2813

Scale 2813Scale 2813, Ian Ring Music Theory


Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2027 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2813
