Modal Jam Theory
When the plain symmetry of the tritone interval is intentionally avoided... the spiral symmetry of the golden ratio (and its reciprocal) is revealed as the catalyst for modulation.
'Fa' can be heard (as a melodic tone) within all the modes - except one: Lydian. We can hear Lydian by identifying just one other tone: 'Fi' (measured from the root of any chord).
The following articles of 'The Lydian Reflection' will add unique elements and ideas to our current model of the Circle Of Fifths...
Let's consider a single idea for reflection -- in our current model of the Circle Of Fifths -- that is simple and profound... it may just change everything we thought we knew.
We have been exploring the following statement:
We will now implement this idea into the circle. We will identify every flatted tone -- and every flatted solfege syllable with the Lydian Mode. This will result in the inner ring on the right side of the circle -influencing- the outer ring of that side.... and the outer ring on the left side of the circle -influencing- the inner ring of that side.
Look carefully as the 'C' modes on the outer ring of the right side (the main focus of our study) have shifted.
The Lydian Reflection is a sort of 'global' model that proposes the roots of the left side of the dividing line (G D A E B F#) are 'governed' by the 'Key Of The Dominant' ['G' Ionian and its 'leading tone' (F#)] --- and that each root on the right side of the dividing line (C F Bb Eb Ab Db) is heard as 'Fa' - indicating the roots of Lydian Modes (IV Chords).
Now - let's reintegrate the 'C' Modes (in parenthesis) that were in the outer ring on the right side before the 'Lydian Pivot' - this reintegration is intended to introduce the idea of unique 'pivots' between 'modal pairs.'
