This is pretty goofy. Here I used an expansion chip to get two more square wave channels, and used the five melodic voices available to (crudely) imitate the sound of a quartet of piano, violin, cello, and flute. The music itself is completely aimless, meandering through a good half dozen keys in less than a minute.
Using the extra square wave channels took away the exciting limitations I have held to throughout most of "Moon Music," but it also allowed me a much more expansive exploration of harmony. I think this was a very successful experiment in that way even if the music is ridiculous.
