Scale 603: "Aeolygimic"

Scale 603: Aeolygimic, 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 are the rotational transformation of this scale. Scale 603 can be rotated to make 5 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

2nd mode:

3rd mode:
Scale 1611
Scale 1611: Dacrimic, Ian Ring Music TheoryDacrimic
4th mode:
Scale 2853
Scale 2853: Baptimic, Ian Ring Music TheoryBaptimic
5th mode:
Scale 1737

6th mode:
Scale 729
Scale 729: Stygimic, Ian Ring Music TheoryStygimic


This is the prime form of this scale.


The hexatonic modal family [603, 2349, 1611, 2853, 1737, 729] (Forte: 6-27) is the complement of the hexatonic modal family [603, 729, 1611, 1737, 2349, 2853] (Forte: 6-27)


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 603 is 2889
