What I Like About It

  1. The low notes provide a beautiful depth to the piece.
  2. The shifting dissonances and slow time arch lends a mysterious awe.
  3. I was more patient with the motion of the tunes, aiming to avoid moving more than two tones at a time.
  4. The chords are different enough that there’s beautiful dissonant tension, but similar enough that it’s not overwhelming.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. The first mix was unbelievably hot and, while it didn’t clip the mixer, it still needed compressed. It’s still a little loud in some places.
  2. The fade out at 5:00 sounds like a mistake. The gap between that and the next chord is a tiny bit too long.

Note: These are rough drafts. Constructive criticism is welcomed, of course.
