Scale 295: "Gyritonic"

Scale 295: Gyritonic, 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.

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

Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 295 can be rotated to make 4 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 2195
Scale 2195: Zalitonic, Ian Ring Music TheoryZalitonic
3rd mode:
Scale 3145
Scale 3145: Stolitonic, Ian Ring Music TheoryStolitonic
4th mode:
Scale 905
Scale 905: Bylitonic, Ian Ring Music TheoryBylitonic
5th mode:
Scale 625
Scale 625: Ionyptitonic, Ian Ring Music TheoryIonyptitonic

Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Complement

The pentatonic modal family [295, 2195, 3145, 905, 625] (Forte: 5-Z38) is the complement of the heptatonic modal family [439, 1763, 1819, 2267, 2929, 2957, 3181] (Forte: 7-Z38)

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 295 is 3217
