Hi Alf,

thanks for your comments. These two tracks definitely lack in
arrangement. I find in electronic music (even more so than in, let's
say, the traditional pop song format) there's two "poles":

- Repetitiveness: This is where electronic music becomes meditation.
This is especially true for music made for particular settings

- Surprise: And with this come all the traditional ingredients of what
makes a good song aside from a catchy hook.

When playing with a tracker or sequencer it is easy to get "caught in
the loop" and more often than not I find myself caught on the repetitive
side. Definitely in these two tracks it's the same thing. Whence at
least has _some_ harmonic movement going (the short interlude of A minor
between the longer D minor parts).

When playing jazz or samba/bossa nova with a band (I play guitar, too)
it's much easier to get some movement going than in sequenced music.
Maybe it's also just a workflow issue. I'm working on it :D

Have fun,
