Scale 2273, Ian Ring Music Theory

Bracelet Diagram

The bracelet shows tones that are in this scale, starting from the top (12 o'clock), going clockwise in ascending semitones. The "i" icon marks imperfect tones that do not have a tone a fifth above. Dotted lines indicate axes of symmetry.

Tonnetz Diagram

Tonnetz diagrams are popular in Neo-Riemannian theory. Notes are arranged in a lattice where perfect 5th intervals are from left to right, major third are northeast, and major 6th intervals are northwest. Other directions are inverse of their opposite. This diagram helps to visualize common triads (they're triangles) and circle-of-fifth relationships (horizontal lines).

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2273 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 199
Scale 199: Raga Nabhomani, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga NabhomaniThis is the prime mode
3rd mode:
Scale 2147
Scale 2147, Ian Ring Music Theory
4th mode:
Scale 3121
Scale 3121, Ian Ring Music Theory
5th mode:
Scale 451
Scale 451: Raga Saugandhini, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Saugandhini


The prime form of this scale is Scale 199

The pentatonic modal family [2273, 199, 2147, 3121, 451] (Forte: 5-7) is the complement of the heptatonic modal family [463, 967, 2279, 2531, 3187, 3313, 3641] (Forte: 7-7)


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2273 is 227

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2273 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 227
