I like the guitar tuning sounds at the beginning. It was a fun quirk. The instrumentation of this piece is really creative, but occasionally a little harsh. The synth at :24 (almost sounds like a radio effect) can be a bit grating. The piece also takes a while to develop, but I enjoyed the tempo change at 1:08 and the corresponding uptick in energy. I like how much you’ve emphasized the ride cymbal in the mix, and the rhythmic elements of the piece are really fun. That said, there’s not a lot of harmonic depth or variety in this piece. I would’ve liked to see some more melodic elements and a stronger sense of direction later in the piece. You definitely went all out with fulfilling the bingo requirements; full credit there. I also think the production quality in this piece is excellent. All of the instruments sound crisp, clear, and full, if a tad over-compressed. Overall pretty strong work, albeit a little lacking on some compositional elements. Keep at it, Quarl!
