15L 4s is a 2/1-equivalent (octave-equivalent) moment of symmetry scale containing 15 large steps and 4 small steps, repeating every octave. 15L 4s is a great-grandchild scale of 4L 3s, expanding it by 12 tones. Generators that produce this scale range from 315.8¢ to 320¢, or from 880¢ to 884.2¢. It is notable as the MOS scale of Catakleismic[19].
