Default Clarinet, piano, worst thing I've made in years

Just finished this; I revile it. I wrote it to replace something I made which gets like, 50,000 plays and is even worse, but then though I shouldn't replace it, because maybe there's actually a reason people are listening to it....

Anyhow, maybe I'll add a synth or something to spice this up; I do like how the harmonies get blurred in places.

I guess I'm going through one of those phases where I don't make good stuff.

Like it. A lot.

If this is your worst, I NEED to listen at the rest

Interesting. I am by no means a classical buff, but it does seem like there is a problem for me deciding what is the melody & what is the counterpart. FWIW I often get this with songs that have a strong riff on guitar or keys underpinning the actual vocal.. Life`s like that, isn't it?

I generally like a lot of counterpoint. For me, one doesn't have to be on top, I just like to choose a melody to listen to.

Not your best work. Still, it has your style, changing keys here and there. Also, the instruments sounded very similar, perhaps treated with the same reverb? I'd go for a bit more contrast. Or write something new. I do like your "modernistic" approach.

I dig it.

I kinda got lost in the initial parts.... wasn't sure who had the melody...seemed a little disjointed but when the drums kicked in - it loved it! I guess that meandering set-up the kit at the end.

Very nice!
