@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.
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!
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!
