This one's a very experimental track, I was aiming to seamlessly blend together different intonation systems in a way that feels natural.

I feel like I succeeded at it, I spent an unholy amount of time working out ways to change intonation through my score.

I'm listening a bit more and I just realised that the Bb in 435 sounds like an A‡, or a Bdb.

TheComet responds:

I was bouncing between A=454hz and A=440hz, just a smidge over a quarter tone sharp.

I really liked how the two intonations worked like a light/dark flavoring to the same notes, I spent a pretty good amount of time working out a loose set of guidelines for myself to get the quarter tones to work. Perfect 5th jumps are easy for the listener to adjust to, arpeggios need to be gradually detuned to the new system over multiple notes, and 440 feels alien when you sit on another intonation for long enough in the song.
