The Lydian Chromatic Concept...
Take a note and stack fifths from this tonic up through all 12 tones. This will give the Lydian Chromatic Scale, the overlord parent scale of all western music. It's called the Lydian Chromatic Scale because if you compress the first 7 or so tones into an octave, you get something like the Lydian mode. Tonal gravity emanates from this nexus of intervallic unity. Harmonic/Melodic movement across this zone can then be characterized as more 'ingoing' (inside) or 'outgoing' (outside).
Life, Love, Tonality.
The ridiculously expensive book is available to tor hunters.
