This is quite an interesting composition, very well-played.

Some of the harmonies around the 3-minute mark sounded a bit wonky to my ears, but then I adjusted as the piece progressed and the seemingly "out of place" notes settled in.

There appeared to be two distinctly different styles in this piece, the first being very "traditional", and then the other style was more quirky. They didn't quite mesh together convincingly - it seemed like the piece should have been one way or the other, or somehow more integrated in mode.

Your recorder skills are always a joy to hear, Victor!

You're comments are very astute. At some I realized that I'd been playing modal in C major for a while, so I tried to introduce some modulations. Maybe they ran away from me a little.....

For completeness: at some point the descending ground bass gets kinda turned upside down. I thought there was a logic to how it progressed, but maybe the transitions are not entirely seamless.

And now that we're talking structure: the piece has 7 voices and 7 sections, and as much as possible each section is based on 7 chords.

Beautiful tone to the flutes. I like the way the composition fills my head, with plenty going on across the stereo spectrum. I enjoyed the melodic variety - the various lines fit together beautifully. Restfully entertaining.

It s always worth stopping by your music, Vic. This is so different from mainstream MJ (if there is such a beast) on many levels and I found it engrossing. Thanks, Peter.

I agree with Cameron
This is almost exploratory in its nature touching on a variety of styles. I love the "quirky" and I would be tempted to develop that further. The quality of the sounds are very evocative and heaven be praised your not locked into some digital pattern or tempo.
