Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The heptatonic modal family [859, 2477, 1643, 2869, 1741, 1459, 2777] is the negative of the pentatonic modal family [595, 665, 805, 1225, 2345]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 859 is 2905

Scale 2905Scale 2905: Aeolian flat 1, Ian Ring Music TheoryAeolian flat 1

Enantiomorph

Only scales that are chiral will have an enantiomorph. Scale 859 is chiral, and its enantiomorph is scale 2905
