- In music, an all-interval series is an ordered set of the twelve pitch classes arranged so that all eleven intervals, 1-11, are present. If the series is considered as a cycle, the interval 6 (the "tritone") is present twice.
Here is the well-known "Mallalieu" series in pitch-class notation: C,Db,E,D,A,F,B,Eb,Ab,Bb,G,F
The same thing in numbers: 014295B38A76
And in intervals: 1,3,10,7,8,6,4,5,2,9,11,6,
An all-interval series is not to be confused with an all-interval set, such as the 4-note sets 0137 and 0146.
