Quick Win #12

Using 4+4 And 5+5 To Connect The OTS Modes With The Church Modes

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • 4+4 is a significant IC (interval combination) that lives on the OTS Modes (the Overtone Series Modes)
  • the outside notes of 4+4 can expand chromatically to 5+5; that's a great transition to the Church Modes


Don't forget that this transition is fully reversible. You can use contraction to go from 5+5 to 4+4, which can bring you back from the Church Modes into the world of the OTS Modes.
