A musical statement about events at the capitol, does not take sides and not meant for political analysis. I wanted to make that clear because in playing for some people they were somehow not getting the point that it is just a neutral depiction and I am not trying to provoke anything pro or con, just relate my emotions. I am not even going to say what I think. All the instruments are string sound sounds from Lab sounds. I had been interested in avant garde/ambient/minimalist music and was listening to that kind of music for a couple of weeks before I decided to enter the contest so that was perfect way for me to get my first at writing in this style. I probably should have tried something more conventional but really wanted to do this even though it was a new adventure for me. I tried to maintain a balance of ambient sounds, effects, repetition, with trying to create some tension and resolution. I did use Cello, Bass, Viola, Violin and some of the weird sounds generated by those instruments in the Spitfire collection.
Melody is pretty much the pizzicato violin. I tried to use as many articulations, variations as possible without going crazy and getting the piece cluttered up Some auto filters were used, particularly towards the end. Tempo is 86 bpm. Thanks for listening.
