    The cycle on twelve points is a well-known representation of the twelve pitch classes of the traditional scale. We treat a more general situation where the number of pitch classes can be different from twelve and where, moreover, other measures of closeness are taken into account. We determine all situations for which the Generalized Hexachord Theorem continues to hold.
