Its been hectic, doll.

But we've got these months.

Don't bother with the ones prior.

These ones here, are us.

November brought a fall

Spilled coffee in a lap

And Decembers almost cashed.

A nice snow to wash it far down.

Thirteen more to go.

But, I'll see you in six,

Till then, hold fast.

We'll get that prospect,

That peaceful transience,

I'll hold you in six,

it wont be so bad.

Spring will bloom eventually.

(a quieter piece. A little older too. worked more on other things. My only qualm with this song - i wish i knew a stand up bassist! Would love to add that to this. Enjoy.)

Lapse responds:

Thank you :)

not fully jazz, no...

I would say Trance-Jazz. Maybe it's the new jazz, like Mills Davis did with his Fusion Jazz. More electronic. You sounds like Susumu Yokota. Sound is pure, fluide with these little cute on percussion. Awesome work.

Lapse responds:

Glitch, IDM, Ambient Jazz. More jazz influenced the anything else and has that overall feel
(at least, to me). I'm not in the business of strict genres, though. Figured someone who digs jazz might dig this. I haven't listened to Susumu Yokota, I will check it out though, for sure, thank you for the recommendation. I'm really glad to hear you dig the sound, overall. I hope you keep listening.

I dig your sound man

Contrary to popular belief, I have a few opinions that may sound radical. You do not need a bass line to make a song hip, as proven here. Secondly, Jazz tunes are most often felt on beats 2 and 4, mostly through the hi-hat, which is also proven here. Thirdly, your progressions are very Jazzy sounding, adding more weight to the fact that yes, this is Jazz tune. However, you've added some very colorful electronic eccentricities to the Jazz sound, and I'm digging the beat happening around 2:33. Keep doing what you're doing, and don't let anyone tell you any different.

Lapse responds:

Heh heh. Well, thank you for your support. Jazz is a a broad term and there are many different sub categories. People here are too focused on the word and classification. Which is ridiculous (I think). I hope you keep listening to my tunes and enjoying them. Thank you for your comment.

It's not really Jazz

Though I like the synth's riff, you impliment a lot of techno techniques like glitches. . .It doesn't feel Jazzy at all, dispite the drums even. I would really suggest you put this in another genre, or atleast take a look at some actual jazz. The music itself isn't bad, but the genre it's in doesn't fit. Perhaps if you used more traditional methods and added in a bass (as you said you may in the future), scratch out the techno techniques, it'd be a nice song here.

Lapse responds:

There are many different styles and variations of jazz. Don't be shallow minded. This is more of a jazz track (I think - or rather, "Electronic Jazz, nu jazz, whatever") and fits here more than any other genre on NG. Jazz has always been forward thinking (in my ears). Also, (not to sound too self righteous or snobbish) I don't use a "techno technique" - electronic, yes, but not techno. There is no 4 on the floor beat here. I'm simply using electronic implementations. You should review the music for the music and not the genre - the meaningless tag.

absolutely magnificent

It sounds like a mashup between Autechre and Miles Davis (with the brushes)
i love the vinyl fuzz in the background
keep at it!

Lapse responds:

Hey man, glad you like this. This was a turning point piece for me when i made it. Its always been a favorite of mine, something very different for me. I had fun making this one.
