There's probably way too many things going on in this track.. also did not have time to do any drums.

Really liking the ostinatos against the sustained bass line here. A very nice balance of calm and energetic.

I'd say just enough is happening.

sounds nice and open without drums, gives it almost an ambient / minimalist vibe

I will have to come back some months later when I have forgotten all about it so I can discover it anew for myself. Until that, I'll take your word for it. Thanks! smile

Thanks! I am wondering how it could be minimalist if there's so many notes and harmonics going on... I guess it is in a way. smile

Haha yeah good point. I was reminded of how Steve Reich starts with simple melodies and then slowly layers more and more over time. So maybe less about # of notes and just how the piece ebbs and flows, certain parts emerge, other parts disappear, slightly change, etc
