About This Key

4'33'' is written in the key of A♯ Locrian. According to the Theorytab database, it is the least popular key among Locrian keys and the least popular among all keys. The A♯ Locrian scale is similar to the A♯ Minor scale except that both the 2nd and the 5th notes (B and E) are a half step lower. This means that the characteristic "home base" chord of A♯ Locrian has a dissonant diminished quality (a#˚), which makes it a very uncommon choice for songs. See the A♯ Locrian Cheat Sheet for popular chords, chord progressions, downloadable midi files and more!
