Project 7 – Middle Eastern 8 note scales

Here are two short melodies using two slightly different Middle Eastern 8-note scales.  I found this first scale quite tricky to compose a melody in – I think partly this is because it lacks the dominant note which usually plays an important role in music.  It also contains four semitone intervals which give it a particularly creepy feel.
