Scale 273: "augmented triad"


i = imperfections

Tones3 (tritonic)
Pitch Class Set{0,4,8}
Rotational Symmetry4, 8 semitones
Interval Spectrumm3
Hemitonia0 (anhemitonic)
Cohemitonia0 (ancohemitonic)


Modes are the rotational transformation of this scale. This scale has no modes, becaue any rotation of this scale will produce another copy of itself.


The tritonic modal family [273, 273, 273] is the negative of the nonatonic modal family [1911, 1911, 1911, 3003, 3003, 3003, 3549, 3549, 3549]


The inverse of a scale is a reflection using the root as its axis. The inverse of 273 is itself, because it is a palindromic scale!
