Software: Logic Pro 8
Genre: Ambient
Timing: 8:06 @ 40 bpm

What I Like About It

  1. I really like the instrument with the resonance sweep.
  2. The harmony is relatively simple (Em7 C#m13 F#m7 B7) and based on Minor Rhythm Changes.
  3. The music is not completely overbearing and didn’t require much adjustment on the mixdown.
  4. Chords flow well and the harmony has moments of consonance and dissonance.
  5. There are plenty of lows that give the piece some awe-inspiring depth.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. There are some phase wobble issues around 4:30. I need to read up and figure out how to correct these.
  2. This is the eighteenth ambient improvisation in a row. I think future ambient tracks will have to have some preconceived plan, direction, tension and resolution.

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