Thanks, Stevie. I don't think I've ever had my music called, "compelling." I like it! I love baroque music, so that influence might just slip in there. Funny, I'm working on a "B" section for this, and it includes a trick I picked up from Vivaldi: Say you have the chord progression, C-F-D-G. The bass can climb up chromatically if you start on the third of the first chord: E-F-F#-G. A while back I bought an M-Audio Venom synth on ebay. They're cheap because nobody wants to spend time re-programming the horrible presets(probably why they flopped). But, starting with the sound waves, I managed to build the sound for the main melody here and for the "recorders" out of the thing. I've also written a fake orchestral arrangement for this. I'll be posting it in a few seconds probably.

That is pretty good. I don't even know how to classify it.

Thanks, CJO. I don't know how to classify it, either. I guess it's a good thing I'm not doing any serious marketing.
