Circle of fourths

2019/12/20 Album: Ambient chord progressions

Usually when choosing chords for an ambient piece we'd want to avoid any strong "resolutions," so there should be no dominant-seventh chords moving to their fourths because that grabs the listener's attention. But in this clip I'm doing it on every single bar, with nothing but dominant-seventh chords going around the circle of fourths all the time. That makes the resolution sound less special, and it too fades into the background. PDF sheet music.
