So, I was reading Homegrown Mom's blog, and she's hosting a giveaway. She said that the winner would be chosen by Random.org. Curious, I visited the Random.org website. Under the "Fun and Free" section, I saw the link for a Jazz Scale Generator, and I laughed!
Turns out, it wasn't at all what I thought. What this tool does is randomly select a known scale, such as "C# pentatonic minor", presumably so that you can practice improvising on that scale. It doesn't include the modes.
From my perspective, I was thinking of Slonimsky's Thesaurus of Scales. Nicolas Slonimsky was a modern composer who made up a whole bunch of new scales. I was thinking that this was a tool to randomly generate a new scale.
Since that wasn't the case, I decided to build one:
So, have fun! If you actually compose anything with these tools, post a comment and let me know!
