The prime form of this scale is Scale 157

Scale 157Scale 157, Ian Ring Music Theory

Negative

The pentatonic modal family [2579, 3337, 929, 157, 1063] is the negative of the heptatonic modal family [379, 1583, 1969, 2237, 2839, 3467, 3781]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 2579 is 2315

Scale 2315Scale 2315, Ian Ring Music Theory

Enantiomorph

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 2579 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2315
