Non-minimal minimalism.
Inspired by Terry Riley's "A Rainbow In Curved Air" and stuff like that.

The only thing that really doesn't sit well with me is the flat-ness that ensues in the high register. Otherwise, this is really cool. Nice .. er.. "minimalism" :)

This actually reminds me of Deus Ex for some reason.

Thanks guys.
@FoD - Yeah it was an accident but it was quirky enough that I decided to keep it. It pretty much fits with the Terry Riley thing too...he had some (likely unintentional) microtonality in some of his organ works.
Not a Teddy Riley thing. In that case I would need a New Jack Swing beat under this.

I dig this, though I'm not entirely keen on the (intentional, I know :P) offbeatness or whatever you call it. "liveness?" "humanishness?" I'm not good at naming these sorts of things... :P

Although something doesn't seem quite right, I like it.

I think the bass/harmony motion is faster than it should be to agree with Riley or Glass' things, but if the motion was properly slow I'd probably complain that the song is too long for a 100 song compo. Good job.

Thanks chunter :)
Yeah as I said, it's "non-minimal minimalism"...I guess the idea was to evoke the same sound palette and/or vibe, but not necessarily adhere to their compositional modus operandi...Although that could be fun in a different way!

Funny how this is tagged as "Eb minor" when it's really "E dorian".

Great work on this! I think you really nailed the "non-minimal minimalism" texture.

I'll have to disagree. My tuning device says sample 1 is tuned 40 cents above Eb. The other samples are tuned 20 cents above Eb. (Both measured when playing a "G" in the tracker) So in reality it's closer to Eb than E.

I agree on it being dorian rather than minor though!

Yes it's dorian through and through...It's obviously not A440 so yeah...hard to really put it in a "key" if you're going by that :D

I guess my ear is tuned according to A425 or something. :p

But yeah listening to this I "felt" like this was definitely in E, not E-flat. Weird.

Changed; my preconceived notions of scales are "major" and "minor" and that's it
My music theory training has been useless in that regard

It hasn't been useless. It just has been incomplete. ;)

Special music theory lesson for MKSTAR26 ^o^

Major - C D E F G A B C
Minor - A B C D E F G A

Dorian - D E F G A B C D
Lydian - F G A B C D E F
Mixolydian - G A B C D E F G
Phrygian - E F G A B C D E
Locrian - B C D E F G A B
