  1. I enjoyed that video, there were some really nice harmonies in there, and especially a tasteful use of dissonance. there’d be a dissonant chord and it’d hold for a few seconds, just long enough to make you feel uncomfortable and then bam! it resolves into a very pretty chord full of charming suspensions, very good work.

  2. Yeah I loved it! What time signature was that first piece? I can’t figure it out at all? I felt a bit sorry for the page turners of the pianists, but I thought the speaker set up for the electric bass was way cool.
