Thanks for listening! Sometimes there are loops that don't go back to the VERY beginning, but in this case it actually does. I still distribute an intro/loop file on my blog, though, because I cut the file so the last notes of the phrase decay while the initial material starts again. The loop actually starts a little late into the phrase, and cuts out partway through the next iteration.
You're absolutely right about it ending a bit abruptly. When I was writing it I felt like I could just keep going, but this was sort of an effort to expand my stylistic portfolio and force myself to write quickly. In previous years I've taken a VERY long time to write anything, but I'm attempting to freelance with music for awhile and learning to use my tools faster and crank ideas out is sort of imperative. I also need to show a little more of what I can do; my personal work is mostly in a specific music-nerd vein and it's next to impossible finding work doing the geeky stuff. This is sort of like a demo of what I could do for potential hired projects. When all is said and done, though, there's no reason the music should just sit there doing nothing. I decided to create a blog that would work as a living portfolio. I write pieces in various styles and genres, and then people can use the music if they'd like. Hopefully it will help me find more work.
All that said, I'd love to pick this back up someday and add a proper ending to it. Hopefully I'll find the time, but right now scrounging for gigs is keeping me pretty busy.
Here's the blog I mentioned earlier: http://sleepfacingwest.tumblr.com/
