Prime

This is the prime form of this scale.

Negative

The nonatonic modal family [959, 2527, 3311, 3703, 3899, 3997, 2023, 3059, 3577] is the negative of the tritonic modal family [35, 385, 2065]

Inverse

The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 959 is 4025
