Not sure what to say here. The title is pretty self-explanatory on my thought process while making this song. I was plopping around on Sibelius when I found the beginning chord progression. It sounded great but at first, everything clashed and I began to die. I fluffed around with the melody and tried to find something that doesn't sound off while still trying to make it nice to listen to (others may differ in opinion). I could understand why people would find this too complicated or to strange for their liking but I have grown a liking to it so I decided to upload it. I hope you enjoy it.

The percussion is particularly well done here, as are the glissandos and chords. Really picks up after 0:40, I prefer that over the intro because the intro does feel empty when the violin cuts away. One thing I do have is the constant full vibrato on the violin is just really noticeable here than in other tracks of yours, and it can be tough to ignore and pass off as a sound font issue. Obviously the instrumentation, and WOW it just got to 1:57 while writing this and I am blown away. I was going to rate it 4.5 stars but just for that it’s now 5. Well done there. I do like the constant changes to minor, helps set it apart from other jazz songs. The piano is really good here as well, and the full vibrato actually pays off in 1:57, the best part of the song by a mile. And don’t think I missed that juicy bass thing in the background doing complementary arpeggios to help give it a funky vibe. This one just got better and better as it went on.

Tangerine responds:

Thank you! I really struggle to find a SoundFont with good strings that come with more than just the violin. I found all the other sound fonts sound like the violin got hit by a truck then the remains burnt to a crisp. I'm still actively searching for better soundfonts. I just have to make do with what I have for the time being. I'm glad you enjoyed this song. I had fun composing it but I wasn't too sure if people would like it since it was more bizarre than what I usually post.
