Re: Are you a "bit" listener?
I was definitely a bit listener back when I was really into fusion-y stuff. I think that's because so many cool snippets would come and go within a larger piece that was otherwise unremarkable to me. That process has informed my current tastes and approach to composition where I'm after whole songs that are a series of magic moments. Anything less just isn't finished ;)
