Today’s Composer Prompt (Moody)

Composer a florid, sinuous melody for viola alone.

Begin in a lydian mode and gradually progress from this very “bright” mode to the “darkest” mode (locrian).  Pitch center need not remain constant.

Here is the “gradient” of modes:

Lydian – Ionian – Mixolydian – Dorian – Aeolian – Phrygian – Locrian
