    How to make realistic and / or cool sounding instrumental RUNS

    Any tipps on that? How do harp runs work in the real world? What about strings and woodwinds? How fast can runs be played realistically? Which notes do I need to hit (scale / chromatic)? Any advice is welcome.

    I'd love to know what you think. The composition is a little repetitive, but so is obsessive thinking, and I was trying to convey madness from that point of view: a madman who thinks he's still a genius, standing in his office, thinking obsessively and looking through some "interesting" papers...
