You should do more electronic music so I can nitpick it. (Especially since you apparently studied that? I think that's pretty cool.)

what did you think of the actual reason this thread was posted?

I kind of figured you were going to reenact the rise and fall of George Clinton, starting from barbershop, moving on to operatic funk music, and then maybe you'll help some of your friends developing a crippling heroin addiction.
It just occurred to me you might want actual critique. The orchestration sounds OK and you picked good transitional chords, although it sounds kind of like you mixed the top part out of existence. There's something fuzzy about the tonality of this one. My gut is that you're slightly sharp near the beginning for the melody line, but it might be another part. The quaver in this recording makes it sound a little more intimate than I'm used to barbershop sounding -- I think this is a mix of vocal technique and mic distance, but I'm not sure. I'm suspicious there's something funny about your breathing since it seems like you'll hit a few notes fairly well and then start to quaver.
