Green and Purple Master Class

The symmetric scale.
Some people call it the double diminished scale – Messiaen called it mode 1 of Limited Transposition. Hindemith called it the Octatonic scale.

This master class shows how Phil’s use of the whole scalic form in Green and Purple is actually the up-side-down version which gives you a whole different set of harmony and chords.
