Oh wow, super chaotic but it all flows so well... Very cool indeed!

I had to look up 12tone's video on the Enigmatic scale and it sounds hella hard to compose in. I think you picked a good arrangement of instruments to tackle the tone of the scale.

So is this like a walking rock?

Like with most arcane scales, all you need to do is throw some notes at it and shake it a bit.

Really enjoyed this.  The bass really kept it all together for me.

Thanx! The scale's missing perfect 4th and perfect 5th so I went the chaotic route

It's fun to compose in ahaha tongue the trick I find is to modulate up 4 semitones and not use every note in the chords

It's an open-ended reference to physical action, sort of like petal to the metal

Thank you for listening! The bass was the last thing I added and I agree it rounds it out pretty good
