Common characteristics of Core tonalities

Core tonalities are a diverse collection of specific hepta-, hexa-, and pentatonalites with a common core. Though only partially or progressively anchored (with the exception of fully anchored BlueMix), they are most uniquely anchored in that they contain all four corners of the sound temple. Besides the fundamental or octave, these are the minor third, tritone, and major sixth. As a result of containing all four corners of the sound temple, they tend towards dissolving tonality. Thus they can open up more freedom in experiencing sound.
