What I Like About It

  1. The instrument is an interesting blend of an organ and bells. I’ve used it before. I really like it.
  2. The harmonic structure is something new, ascending major seventh chords up the circle of fifths (CM7, GM7, DM7, AM7).
  3. I equalized almost all the distortion out of this piece.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. The harmony doesn’t lend to very many moments of real tension. It just seems to float continuously on a major seventh chord.
  2. Despite having profound low notes, they are nearly inaudible. I really need to emphasize note diversity more next time.
  3. The mix is too loud, so watch your head.

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