Mixolydian with Harmonic Seventh
This is my first post here, and I thought I'd introduce myself with a question (I'm so unique!).
Does anyone know much about use of the harmonic seventh (aka septimal minor seventh) as a replacement for the (usually approximately) Pythagorean minor seventh in the Mixolydian mode? Does anyone know of any pieces or performances that uses such a "microtonal" substitution? Especially when playing contextually "near" the tonic (playing the tonic more frequently, playing mostly the tonic tetrachord, etc.) in the mixolydian mode, I imagine that the substitution would sound quite nice. I'd think a full blown I7 chord with the harmonic seventh in place of the normal (pretty much fourth-of-the-fourth of the tonic) flat seventh could sound quite satisfying and resolved in this non-functional context.
Let me know if you want me to elaborate, because I haven't heard much discussion of this kind of thing before.
Thanks for the great recommendation. I know you've seen it already, but I thought I should say here that I've started a thread there on the topic with some wonderful replies.
