The Exciting Universe Of Music Theory

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.

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 715 can be rotated to make 2 other scales. The 1st mode is itself.

This is the prime form of this scale.

The hexatonic modal family [715, 2405, 1625] (Forte: 6-30) is the complement of the hexatonic modal family [715, 1625, 2405] (Forte: 6-30)

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 715 is 2665

Scale 2665 | Aeradimic |

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 715 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2665
