    Hi Gary. I liked this. I enjoyed the contrast between the more tonal (almost diatonic) beginning and end to the very chromatic middle section.

    Thanks for listening, Trent.
    It seems that I've written a melody in Db Major with chords in Bb Minor.
    It's back to the salt mines (blurred concepts) to fully develop a melody & compatible chords.
    It seems like my writing progress parallels my understanding of "wet & dry" sounds...

    Hi Gary,

    This piece, to me, seemed to have these moods -- quizzical, a bit of tension/uncertainty, a disjointed/fractured feeling, as in a beach with many rocks that break up the waves and make them froth and swirl about (I have in mind Wingaersheik (sp?) beach in Massachusetts), and a resolution (briefly) and then a recap of the beginning.

    The harmonies are daring! I always expand my mind when I listen to music like this. At the end, I found my mind adding an arpeggio flourish in the piano, with winds fading out smoothly, but that's just me.

    Thanks for posting, Gary :-)
    Karen

    Your comments brought attention to features of the music
    I overlooked for awhile.
