Musical Scales - ScaleCoding and Analysis.

Postby lucytune » Tue Jul 21, 2009 2:11 pm

For the past couple of years, I have been compiling a database of all musical scales, and triads, which can be used with each scale.
It might be interesting to discover which scales are used for each of the melodies that are in your database, and explore the geographical and musical traditions, to discover patterns which are common to diverse cultures.

Details are in this folder:

It would certainly be an interesting exercise - though I imagine it could be challenging to code up an algorithm which was able to decide what mode a tune is in.
