i think i caught the lick in here some where ?
great walking bass lines
there's either some low-key microtonal stuff or some Important fine-tuning, either way, it is good
how about that unassuming little octave you use a few times ? (try 2:52) i keep wanting you to go into the track that plays in Pokemon RSE when you encounter a lass
. speaking of that, the whole piece really kinda reminds me of a PokeMart or a casino from one of those games.
i think a lot of the things you and i like doing when mastering a track is considered cheesy or whatever but i think the low pass adds a ton to the vibe of this track. the feeling of being outside the place where the music is happening really kind of paints the whole thing with this "i'm missing out" narrative for me. the sappy bits especially feel kind of like "i'll take anything over being denied entry".
makes me think about some conversations we've had about people's responses to your music and wonder if you're sort of invoking that a little bit here, as would be appropriate for an entry to a major on BotB.
but charlotte, to be totally honest, i would not have guessed you could nail down the kind of jazz i like so dutifully. i mean, parts of this have a super, super solid coltrane kinda jazz sound. coltrane if he didn't modulate so much. that's also really ironic considering the context of you being the author. i'll just tell myself you took some of my critique on your 2018 stuff to the workbench hahaha
i'm jazzed ;) this is my favorite from you in a long time
