What I Like About It

  1. This is a patch I haven’t used before. I like the swirly phaser. This is a pretty sound.
  2. The harmony is in D major with descending chords (DM7, C#m7b5, Bm7, A7), which has lots of soaring consonance and tense, clustered dissonance in my tight 16-note grid.
  3. The note diversity is decent with some floating highs and heavy-duty lows.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Some of the dissonant clusters resolve unexpectedly or fail to resolve at all and simply “move on”.
  2. In a couple of spots, a few notes shift at once and leave a pedal tone hanging in the air, seemingly disembodied.
  3. I feel like this might be a little too phaser-heavy and I could have toned it down a little bit.

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