What I Like About It

  1. The harmony is minor Rhythm Changes in Bb minor. It’s consonant enough to leave big open chords, but dissonance enough to give us some delicious tension.
  2. The lows are vast and give a beautiful depth to the piece.
  3. The mix is very clean and very high resolution (I asked for 160 kbps VBR and ended up with 225 kbps.
  4. This instrument is mellow and with the touch of added microphaser is very interesting.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. All the notes are bunched too close together just below middle C. While there are awe-inspiring depths, nothing soars into treble territory.
  2. Multi-note clusters much below the top of the bass clef clash and sound badly mixed.
  3. The ending is unexpectedly abrupt.

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