This is really growing on me.
It always amazes me when people make these long pieces that feel connected AND varied all the way through.

Yep, those chromatic slides are a typical early Jarre thingy.
And thank god someone mentions this EOD thing. I also had this feeling at some parts, but because it wasn't intended I thought I was just getting megalomaniac if I'd mention it by myself. In the end: I assume it's because of the typical (e-)minor scales and that rythm feeling created with arp & ringmod mixture.

sounds like an alternate version of "edge of disgrace" with some added progressive elements and a touch of jarre. i like it, good transitions, pleasing sounds, good long time listening! nice scales used in there, never gets boring.

Thumbs up! To me the most interesting entry in this compo, well, /so far/ :) Love the variations, some surprising beats, some ritardandi, nice chromatics, even a 3/4 part in a 4/4 song .. it really doesn't get boring quickly, even though the main theme sounds similar to many others, it's processed nicely and rich in variations.

Noticed btw. that to me this sounds a lot more relaxing when listened on 6581 despite the instructions :)

LooooL... GT-Wizarding! :-)
I like the retro feel in this tune caused by the interesting slides, and sometimes the rhythm-changes are surprising.
Oh btw, poor 3-headed guy. He must be a top coder at least.

@cadaver: no surprise you like the drum & bass sounds, because I took *your* drum & bass sounds (I think from "consultant") as a reference and then did some tweaks - but glad I didn't fuck them up ;-)

@Groepaz: yep, I know what you mean. I wasn't absolutely sure if I really should split the parts, going slowly from one to another (like I did) or if I should mix them more together with abrupt changes. But trying transitions (especially the last one from waltz back to 4/4 ) felt more challenging to me.

quite nice, i'd prefer some more abrupt changes and counterpoints though :)

This one was nothing to fall in love with while first listening, but for me it is getting better at second listening.

Nice bass + drum sounds. The loud power chord arpeggios somewhat get on my nerves (it's just a matter of taste) and despite length I get the feeling of unfulfilled potential or lacking an especially memorable part.
