The Exciting Universe Of Music Theory

presents

more than you ever wanted to know about...

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 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 3447 can be rotated to make 8 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode: Scale 3771 | Katodyllian | ||||

3rd mode: Scale 3933 | Ionidygic | ||||

4th mode: Scale 2007 | Stonygic | ||||

5th mode: Scale 3051 | Stalygic | ||||

6th mode: Scale 3573 | Kaptygic | ||||

7th mode: Scale 1917 | Thydyllian | ||||

8th mode: Scale 1503 | Epiryllian | This is the prime mode | |||

9th mode: Scale 2799 | Lyryllian |

The prime form of this scale is Scale 1503

Scale 1503 | Epiryllian |

The nonatonic modal family [3447, 3771, 3933, 2007, 3051, 3573, 1917, 1503, 2799] (Forte: 9-8) is the complement of the tritonic modal family [69, 321, 1041] (Forte: 3-8)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 3447 is 3543

Scale 3543 | Aeolonygic |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 3447 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 3543
