22.) Three Quarter Moon
Three Quarter Moon is in 12/8 time, which I rarely write in. Interestingly a line in this meter just started coming out when I sat down this week. I welcome it. The piece features three voices. Each of the three voices uses one of the three different octatonic scales. It starts with a dialogue between the upper two voices, until the lower voice enters with the duplet rhythm. Then the voices are added one at a time, until all three are happening at once. It sounds a little chaotic at the end, but it was a fun thing to learn.
