Fixed tonics
Take the
Back ArrowTour Forward Arrow

The Idea of fixed tonic has been a very important one to me.
I had worked very hard at the symbolic relationship and meaning
of the fixed tones of the I Ching scales

Now that I am in my fourth period of the scales the fixed tones are each unique to the scale

In the first and second I ching scale periods,
I had worked out symbolic meanings and relationships of the tonics.

These tonics in the first and second scale set are somewhat based on the I Ching meaning and inter-relationship of the hexagrams and I see some relationship of consonant and dissonant musical intervals as part of this organization.

This musical intervallic relationship is obvious in the opposite primary hexagrams 1 & 2 being assigned C & F# the tritone opposite.
