Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 2535 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3315 | Tcherepnin Octatonic mode 1 | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 3705 | Messiaen mode 4 inverse | ||||

4th mode: Scale 975 | Messiaen mode 4 | This is the prime mode |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 975

Scale 975 | Messiaen mode 4 |

The octatonic modal family [2535, 3315, 3705, 975] is the negative of the tetratonic modal family [195, 2145]

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2535 is 3315

Scale 3315 | Tcherepnin Octatonic mode 1 |
