What I Like About It

  1. This is a patch I haven’t used before. I added a number of effects to make it sound mysterious, including a toned-down ring modulator.
  2. I used minor rhythm changes in A minor (Am7, FM7, Bm7b5, E7), which lends to open consonances and tense dissonances.
  3. The deeps anchor the piece nicely, without being too loud or overbearing.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. The pace of the piece seems to move too fast.
  2. Sometimes, tonal shifts took us in unexpected directions.
  3. We could have lingered a little less long on the final cadence.

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