It's starting to become something. After giving the drums a thrashing playing only quarter notes, it's almost nice. There's just something about the lead that's just not quite right yet, but I've got plans for that.

Weird stuff you did there. That harmon trumpet on the left reminded me of McLaughlin's 'No return'.

I didn't want it to be off-balance, even though the bass is on the left. I put a copy of the right trumpet to the left and changed the highpass to a lowpass. Unless you mean the muted trumpet part, in which case it's a muted trumpet, that's just how they sound.

It's absolutely not off-balance, I was just refering to its position in my headphones to point it out in your track. I heard it slightly on the left.
Yeah, it's a muted trumpet, but this type of mute (the thing you stick into the bell to modify the timbre) is called a Harmon mute, and this is how they sound indeed. smile

Strange, asymetrical, buzzy -- perfect, in other words.
