Here's another modal example, this one more ambiguous.

The first eight bars are in E phrygian. Then it goes to D dorian, before ending in A aeolian. It sounds like the primary mode here is either D dorian or A aeolian, but it is unclear.

For both the D-11 and A-11, plane voicings in diatonic fourths up and down stepwise. For all, use pedal points on one and five of each chord.

The entire piece is diatonic to the white notes.
