My previous few attempts at composition have generally relied on some fixed structure (four-, eight-bar phrases) and consequently were relatively rigid.

This one, though, is a result of opting for a 'freer' approach and just taking the decisions which seemed to make sense.

I was initially quite concerned that the result would be terrible and make little sense, or even be seen as pretentious.

Then I realised no one visits this website anyway, so I'll be fine.
