I love fugues. I really think it is interesting that the fugue has 
slight tempo variations. Is that written in your fugue's main subject? I 
also like how the sounds themselves get sweeter and more varied as the 
piece plays out.

2:13 has some interesting stereo phasing too which I thought was really 
cool. What was that?

Thanks for sharing this, fugues rock really hard.
