I hear a little Spanish influence in this piece, a little Japanese influence. Hence the title.

I wanted to try writing something in locrian mode. Locrian is a weird scale, it doesn't resolve well, and is rarely used. I started out with the introductory riffs, and it went from there. I think I came up with something fairly musical. Started on guitar, written out and arranged in Notion in standard notation, then exported as midi to Auria Pro on the iPad. I then replaced the guitars and bass with live tracks, and added drums through my Percpad. Synth is GeoShred, a guitarish synth on the iPad, very new and enjoyable. The only midi track left, the only one I didn't play, was the piano.

I may have set a new record for crashes with this one, as this was what I was using to do all the beta testing on. All worth it, got to work out a bunch of the new features, and learn a ton about midi.

Really like your tune, all those crashes were built in smoke breaks. :)
