A way of visualising the relationship between the modes of the major scale. When I have time I’ll expand to other modal groups (and fix the dodgy alignments).
The diagram reminded me of the ones I call ‘Mandalala’ and ‘Skalabbala’ which you can see in my folder ‘Patterns of Music’ on flickr, and I am a little bit envious that you found the missing link between them!
As you didn’t write a copyright notice I couldn’t resist trying to make a remix. Please let me know if I should remove it!
That’s much neater than mine! I really like your visualisations, what software do you use to make them? I’m thinking the scale degree adjustments should have arrowheads in both directions ( which is why I said eg 6th as opposed to specifying majority minor)that way you can keep spinning in one direction and (because of the root displacement) eventually get every major mode in every key!
I am glad you didn’t take offense! I have now made a new version allowing eternal spin, which replaces the old one on flickr.
I am not completely satisfied, so if you don’t mind I may try to improve it later.
I made a different version in black/white before you made me aware of the spin problem. See it here: https://flic.kr/p/rcW1dG
Hello Milton and readers,
After Mashupforge have stopped their services I have made a new interactive version of the diagram at Thinglink:
