That clips sounds very cool to me! Makes me think about The Avelanges
collage music. This cut and paste vibe fully directed by just
listening to one's own taste is so nice! Many great musicians work
hard to learn that and keep coming up with music theory based
strategies... but creating such music really comes down to listening!
I've heard this vibe resonating through Miles Davis music as well as a
lot of DJ produced techno.
