What I Like About It

  1. Staying in the Eb Melodic minor scale allowed me to use harmonies that moved from consonance to dissonance easily.
  2. The mod wheel effect on this patch is exotic and mysterious. Since I played this on my Oxygen 8, I could easily reach the mod wheel.
  3. This piece feels like it has more structure than some of the others, although it’s also improvised.
  4. The transitions are smooth and not jarring.
  5. There are a few gorgeous openings where a simple triad or dominant seventh chord comes out of the cluster of dissonance.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Many parts of the piece feel out of phase and wobble a little too much for my taste.
  2. I tried to equalize the distortion fuzz out, but I don’t think I got it all.
  3. I may have been a little heavy-handed on the compressors.

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