Negative Harmony Modes

Negative Harmony or “Mirror” Harmony: SCALES:

Here we will take a brief look at the major scale modes and their “Mirror” effect via inversion. When we employ contrary motion we get the same intervals descending as we do ascending. So for example if the Lydian scale ascends  T T T S the scale below descends exactly the same with TTTS.

negative 1

Other way around:

negative 3

The Dorian mode being “Palindromic” produces the same scale either way.

negative 2

Scale extension: 13 note scale
