The concept of using only samples as they are so to speak (without much modification or introducing new elements) is certainly an unusual approach. I don’t know if I could do that personally.

The piece has lots of discord in it, and certainly that is partly the point. I think I would liberally apply some pitch shifting to various parts of it to introduce some harmony.

I do like the way you flip to different samples/parts and back - it has a very ‘mixed live’ feel to it, like a DJ does when dumping the crossfader from channel to channel. Interesting stuff at the very least, even if it is too discordant for me.

quite evocative, almost sounds “soundtracky,” I can visualize a music video, ala Orbital…. The drums make me a bit uneasy, which may be the intended effect. Good use of contrasting elements and dynamics.
