  • Hexatonality matrix: There are two common and two exceptional interval distributions within the octave of hexatonalities in the catalogue. The two common distributions are: 1) one Reach step, four whole steps, and one single half step (or semitone); and 2) two Reach steps, two whole steps, and two half steps. The two exceptional interval distributions include: 1) three Reach steps, no whole step, and three half steps; and 2) one augmented Reach step (spanning four half steps), three whole steps, and two half steps.
  • HexaNaTriMix: The name indicates that this is a hexatonality based on the first few Na(tural) harmonics. But it jumps over the major second (or third halftone position) to the tritone. And the contrasting addition of the major sixth makes the upper tetrachord DorMixolydian.
  • Step pattern: Ascending from the fundamental (tonic or Do), an augmented Reach step spanning over four semitones leads to a whole step. Then comes a half step, a whole, and another half step. Finally a whole step leads up to the octave.
  • Scale intervals: Major third, tritone, quint, major sixth, and minor seventh.
  • Tetrachords: The lower tetrachord is NaTri and the upper is DorMixolydian.
  • Harmonic axes: There is one axis, which is tilted, ES-WN.
  • Primary harmonic anchors: All four primary anchors are but partially present. The fundamental or North anchor has its head and its right leg. The East anchor has only its right leg. The contrasting or South anchor has only its head. And the West anchor has its head and right leg.
  • Secondary harmonic anchors: There are no secondary anchors.
  • Moduation potential: Hexatonalities can facilitate modulations. HexaNaTriMix is closely related to ReachNaMix, LydDorian/ClusterPro, and other NaTri tonalities like HexaNaTriMin and PentaNa.
