What I Like About It

  1. The harmony is interesting, but easy to play around with. It’s descending minor seventh chords starting on A minor (Am7, Gm7, Fm7, Em7). Lots of interesting tonal possibilities here.
  2. The instrument patch I’m using is unusually and has interesting nuances.
  3. The individual notes take some time before the fundamental tone is reached.
  4. It doesn’t feel naked when there are only one or two notes in the chord.
  5. The mix down sounds good.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. The first tone, the ringing bell/organ, is a part of this patch I’m still not totally sure if I love. Especially since it occurs on every attack.
  2. I didn’t use those lows effectively enough.

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