Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 297 can be rotated to make 3 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:
Scale 549
Scale 549: Raga Bhavani, Ian Ring Music TheoryRaga Bhavani
3rd mode:
Scale 1161
Scale 1161: Bi Yu, Ian Ring Music TheoryBi Yu
4th mode:
Scale 657
Scale 657, Ian Ring Music Theory


This is the prime form of this scale.


The tetratonic modal family [297, 549, 1161, 657] is the negative of the octatonic modal family [1467, 1719, 1773, 1899, 2781, 2907, 2997, 3501]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 297 is 657
