South Brooklyn

South Brooklyn is a historic term for a section of the former City of Brooklyn – now the New York City borough of Brooklyn – encompassing what are now the Boerum Hill, Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Sunset Park and Red Hook neighborhoods. It was named for its location along the waterfront, the southern border of the original Village of Brooklyn, has remained used as a colloquialism despite it no longer being the southern most point of the borough, it should not be confused with the geographic southern region of the modern borough of Brooklyn, which includes the neighborhoods of Gravesend, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park, Mill Basin, Bergen Beach. "South or Southern Brooklyn" is in use in the modern borough of Brooklyn, but without total consistency as to what it refers to. It has been used about neighborhoods as various and physically separated as Mill Basin, Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Smith Street, Sunset Park, Windsor Terrace, as well as Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Park Slope.

The New York City Subway's IND Culver Line serves the area at the Carroll Street and Smith–Ninth Streets stations. The line was named the "South Brooklyn Line" on some official subway maps. However, this obsolete name for the Culver Line may have referred to the South Brooklyn Railway, the original right of way of the BMT Culver Line; the B57 and B61 bus routes serve South Brooklyn as well.

Tritonic scale

A tritonic scale is a musical scale or mode with three notes per octave. This is in contrast to a heptatonic scale such as the major scale and minor scale, or a dodecatonic scale, both common in modern Western music. Tritonic scales are not common in modern art music, are associated with savage and primitive music, in both the descriptive and the derogatory senses. Early Indian Rig Vedic hymns were tri-tonic, sung in three pitches with no octave: Udatta and Swarita. In a 1969 study, Mervyn McLean noted that tritonic scales were the most common among the Maori tribes he surveyed, comprising 47% of the scales used; the pre-Hispanic herranza ritual music of the Andes is tritonic, based on a major triad, played on the waqra phuku trumpet and singer with a tinya drum. The tritonic scale is limited to this ritual and to some southern Peruvian Carnival music. One-third octave Tritone
