creative accountability, aka clouds

Here is arpeggiated-bassline-aka-clouds-2022-07-06-0902.mp3:

A day or two before working on this, I heard Supernature - Somewhere In Time and took the note "arpeggiated bassline," so that was clearly part of the inspiration for this bit of noodling. This piece has more songlike structure compared to most of the bits I've made prior, primarily in the form of introductory drum bars and more variety in the lead melody.

I've been trying to take inspiration from the dramatic clouds on the island. They sit low in the sky, move quickly, and tell vivid stories with their shapes. I don't think that comes through whatsoever in this composition, but as I tell my kids: trying is important.
