creative accountability, deep experiment 2

Here's deep-experiment-2-2022-07-16-0011.mp3, an attempted successor to deep experiment 1:

I felt that the Supersoft Pad and the 2-5-1 chord progression didn't work, and so most of the work here involved trying to improve that. I went with a synth instead of a pad and noodled out a new v - IV - i - ii chord progression. Then, feeling a little nostalgic for the Supersoft Pad, I used a layering technique to drive the Supersoft Pad using the notes of the string part.

This felt like a meaningful evolution of the prior ideas, and I was pretty happy with what came together.
