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.
