Lottery Scales

E Major- SaByeD - E/ A B C# D# E F# G# B


SaByeD (Sabaidee) is a sound model created my Ezahn of Echo Sound Sculptures. The name is a Thai greeting that has a similar sentimentality to Aloha. The sound model is an arrangement of E Major starting on the 4th of the scale, A. This scale gives a great deal of chord progressions and can easily slip into its relative C# minor. To date it is my favorite sweet scale.

E Minor- E Witching Hour8 - E/ G B C E F# G B D


Witching Hour is a sound model of my own making but is really just a mashing up of two very popular 7 note scales: Mystic and Magic Hour. In nesting the two 7 note sound models together the player can drift from the dominant E minor to the nested G major with relative ease. It is an extremely balanced scale, meaning it has a high percentage of relative harmonics across the instrument.

E Harmonic Minor - E Romanian Hijaz - E/ A B C D# E F# G B


Romanian Hijaz was popularized by Victor of SPb as a 9 noter. This 8 note version is a play on that sound model and also lends its heritage to two closely related original 1rst gen scales, Hijaz and Rumanikos. It is the 4th mode of E harmonic Minor starting on A and has the distinct step-and-a-half Middle Eastern flair.
