 EOL 8: The Birth of a New Mode - Introduction (Dujunco)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In Chaozhou music, scale, pitch ornamentation, pitch temperament, intervallic pattern and the recurrence of characteristic melodic motifs are the important parameters for distinguishing one modal variant of a given tune from another.
This is in contrast with the modal systems of the more mainstream Chinese folk music traditions wherein the beginning tone and the particular intervallic permutation of the pentatonic scale series that it generates identify the mode.
The basic building block of Chaozhou xianshi is an anhemitonic pentatonic scale series consisting of the scalar degrees 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6, which are referred to using sol-fa syllables as do, re, mi, sol, and la respectively (Figure 1).
