Remastered an old track that's just collecting dust in the folders, it was inspired by a character writing prompt for a seemingly unassuming person with a dark/sinister ennui-born secret, so I threw up something that felt chill until it gets a bit more hard sounding, then creepy-ish. It was a mood piece so it was a bit more unfinished then.
I'm not sure what genre I can classify it under. There's only smidges of jazz and film music, and "intense Muzak/elevator music" doesn't seem right either. I guess art rock is the closest but that's too vague too.

Cool piece. Cool rhythms. Contemporary in nature. Free tonality. The melody should resolve at 3:00. The faster, more upbeat portion can return at the end. It sounds kind of incomplete. Otherwise, awesome job!

Thanks! Yeah, I'm not sure yet if I'll continue it some other time cause it does feel incomplete.
I cut it off at 3:00 with the brass synth post-production (it used to go directly to the B at 3:11), though in hindsight , I think resolving it, letting it taper over the synth blares, then repeating the note would have roughly the same effect without being awkward. Thanks for helping me catch that.

I really like all the dissonance that is going on in the track. I also liked how you kept the texture of all the instruments the same, as in they all would seem to fit in a PS1/GameCube game.

My best guess on the genre would be alternative jazz.
