    • Well resolving sustained chords with 7th chords is usually a nice way to maintain 'some' tension.  So yes dissonance.  But that doesn't feel like what's wrong, I think it's lacking the feeling of a third. I feels like there is some emptiness in the structure. I have a dream (Yes) [applause] that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice (Yeah), sweltering with the heat of oppression (Mhm), will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I think if you could mimic what the crowd was feeling rather than what MLK is saying it'd gain that tension, that emotion. that oomph. 
    • @Rabbival507 Hello! I tried to re edit the mp3 I published here as the reverb was too much and it could not be understood too well... Anyway, I hope the trumpet does sound more here :)
    • Thanks Gustav Johnson, Ampnoe, and pateceramics for your reviews and criticisms. I appreciate them. 

      Gustav Johnson, it is true I haven't been composing as frequently of late. Great to hear that you always enjoy hearing my work! pateceramics, actually if you look closely there are some subtle variations between the four other parts. But even then, there are times when the character of a piece would requires less counterpoint and/or harmony and a more monophonic texture.  That is why I do not worry about the way every piece develops. The pieces have their character; and as a composer, I have my character (including strengths and limitations, inclinations). It is about negotiating between those two, about balancing the character of the given piece with the character of the composer. Art can never be entirely objective, if at all; therefore it should never be judged by objective standards.  Thanks Ampnoe for your positive words and encouragement!

    • Thanks Rabbival507! That was actually the first thing that popped into my head when I was playing this, but went along with it because I love Joe Hisaishi so much.  Monarcheon: Thanks! I will see if I can edit the soundfonts so it can reverb a bit more afterwards. I agree the second half does get boring after a while. I'll see if I can add some non harmonic notes.
