One Hour Compo - Round 363 (OHC363)
Sep 24, 2015 Koekepan
Boat Song is similarly strong and thematic, and very smoothly done.
Making Time takes a different approach to the theme, consistent with the two swimmers in one of the pictures. The sound design is interesting, but the melody seems a bit twee, and the short length doesn't allow for the development this sound deserves.

"Monochromatic Fisherman" - That moment at 1:15 was like a perfect combination of all the different instruments. I especially like how the notes at the end seem to blend in together; that really captured the idea of fading away with time. The music paired quite well with the description, and was overall great.
"lap" - This piece grooves in all the right ways. The beats, the running notes, a catchy chord progression. This was a very pleasant listen.
"Forsaken Loch" - This came pretty close to taking over my second place vote because it suited the theme more to me than johnfn's. The chords that hold the piece together were lovely yet haunting. My only quip was that the balancing didn't seem right to me - the noise is too overpowering and the chords that kick in about halfway through the piece also seem to drown out the piano bit.
Honourable mentions this week go to "Unreleased OHC183" for that Arabian-esque melody at 1:28 and "skewed summertime memory" for strangely being able to achieve an in-tune sound while also sounding out-of-tune. Hmm.
