hahahah there's lots of really nice notework and little touches in this~ i can tell you put a ton of heart in this piece. the silly waltz at 1:47 is my favourite bit

one thing i feel is a letdown is the harmony; its almost threadbare diatonic and it starts to wear my nerves after a while >:) feels almost out of place considering how well-crafted the rest of the work is

I kinda love that you figured this out - it's the exact reason why I was hesitant on releasing it for this compo.

I feel that I struggle to find ways to incorporate harmony when I work with just 2a03 since my crutch is the VRC6's pulses to make everything better and I usually like those flowing, chained suspensions. I was too scared to use arp (0XX) chords too in a lot of the places and maybe that was a bit of a solution. I also like to use that silly speed echo arp thing way too much in the background to add depth - another crutch.

In terms of "serious original" work I've done for the 2a03, this may be the first one. I'll definitely be much more mindful of that in the future. Thanks for actually constructive and awesome feedback :) I really appreciate it.
