What I Like About It

  1. This harmonic structure is something I haven’t tried to improvise on before. It’s a scale consisting of only six notes, the whole tone scale in C (C, D, E, F#, G#, A#).
  2. I managed to equalize out most of the phase distortion.
  3. It sounds much different than lots of the 16-note grid-based compositions lately.
  4. Dominant and major “chords” lead in unexpected directions.

What I Don’t Like About It

  1. Too much of the music here is below middle C. Of the notes high on the keyboard, I need to practice landing a little less aggressively.
  2. There’s still a little bit of phase distortion in mid frequences, but it’s only noticeable on good headphones at very high volume.

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