What I Like About It

  1. The harmony lends itself to dissonance and consonance with the move of one finger (Em7 A7 Ebm7 Abm7).
  2. The selected instrument makes it sounds otherworldly and haunting.
  3. I resisted the temptation to build big stacky chords most of the time.
  4. Sustained chords are not static. The pad iterates on itself a little bit.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Mayday, Mayday, the mix is coming in hot. It’s pretty loud.
  2. I need to give this more EQ attention. Some notes in the middle frequencies distort my headphones in playback just a tiny bit.
  3. The note diversity might be just a little too narrow (i.e.: too much stuff in the same octave).

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