Mirror Harmony Modes/scale

 “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.

Other way around:

Mirror harmony reversed modes of the major scale

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

AUDIO SCALE:

Polytonality and Polymodality Mirror Harmony with Scales>

Each mode of the major scale has it’s mirror [modal] opposite because the whole diatonic scale system can be symmetrically inverted.

Inverted Symmetrical Reflection. The intervals are the same both in harmonisation and contrary motion.

NEGATIVE HARMONY

Through inversion we find the opposite of the C Major Scale

Here we see the opposites in the chords with Minor Reflecting Major and Major reflecting Minor. Diminished stays the same though.
