Hey guys, been finally getting back into learning guitar and was wondering what scales Obsequiae use for the medieval and ancient sound they have managed to pull off so beautifully. Any tips or suggestions welcome. Thanks!

Wonderful question, with a sharp, short, and to-the-point answer. The two Obsequiae full-lengths were a breath of extremely fresh air. There is a lot of inspiration in this way of playing, and I would say that tonally, harmonically, etc:, lifeforms in general have an innate resonance with the geometry employed within it.

I have nothing to add, other than that I fully encourage anything anyone creates using these scales, especially if its in 528 Hz or its various harmonics.
On a side/related topic, I would also recommend the book "Quadrivium - The Four Classical Arts of Number, Geometry, Music, & Cosmology"
