Program Notes

su·per·vil·lain (so͞o′pər-vĭl′ən):

Noun: A fictional evildoer or antihero, widely popularized in comic books and comic strips, television and film, and popular culture and video games, whose extraordinary powers are used toward nefarious ends. Supervillains are the counterpart and arch-enemy of superheroes.

The seven notes of a major or minor scale might be enough for a regular villain, but such a fiendish, cunning character requires a “superscale” – in this case, the eight notes of an octatonic or “diminished” scale.
