Here is Remembrance, my 24-bar atonal ballad which employs a step-wise descending non-functional chord succession, over which the melody appears as various forms of unresolved melodic tensions (9ths, 11ths, & 13ths), including various usages of #11.

Here is Remembrance, my 24-bar atonal ballad which employs a step-wise descending non-functional chord succession, over which the melody appears as various forms of unresolved melodic tensions (9ths, 11ths, & 13ths), including various usages of #11 in which #11 is approached from a whole-step below:

While the salient tension in this piece is 9, it also has a use of #11, that of the prepared and repeated #11, in which its context and tension level is altered by the changing of chords, as can be found in the last 7 bars.
