Haha, called it! I didn't predict actually connecting the white lines so that the pieces formed kind of steps upward, though, which is a cool effect and definitely conveys the progression through the piece. It actually kind of makes me think of the effort of the musicians in performing the entire piece without breaks--instead of a short pause in between, you just have to jump right up to the next stage.
I think if I had to do one thing differently, I would have used a golden tone for the brass, but maybe that's too literal/just my impression. And perhaps it wouldn't have fit the color scheme of the rest of the piece.
My favorite part of this is the "pink fluff" and "bubbles" in the third; the shapes and colors all match up quite well with the more gentle, playful feeling of that section. I also think the fluid texture of the line was a good choice over possibly something smoother because it evokes the vibration of a sound wave.
I'm sorry you feel the result wasn't effective, but I disagree! Just from what we saw in class and what you've kept here, it's clear you made a lot of progress even in the short time period, and the overall composition would definitely be something I could connect to the source material. Nice job!
