Scale Name Tradition: Western Modern

These scales are based on names from the old western modes, but sometimes have "Super" or "Ultra" or "Hyper" added, "Altered", "Diminished", "Half-Diminished", and other indications that the scale is slightly different from its diatonic namesake. Also includes names that have been derived from modern Western musical traditions, including Postmodern and Serialism.
