I am *not always* using the multi-tonic changes; but I would use some variations when I feel I need them. My composition "Cybernetics" is a good example. It is a mixture of poly-structure of symmetrical scales (A section) and multi-tonic changes (B section - only 4 bars). Check out mm.9-12 of B section. It consists of bVII-bV-III-I tonic movement, which my book defines as SLT.4. Enjoy, Bros!
NOTE: "Cybernetics" can be heard on my album, "Crossings (2009)."
