This piece was dedicated to the Service Members who are deployed, and no longer home. I’m not sure exactly what the mood of it would be, but a bit bittersweet is one possible feeling. Of course, a bit of a portrayal of the difficulties that they endure also. The sounds and composing are from the software that I often use, Melody assistant. It’s a much more advanced version of Musescore. It has a slow buildup, but stays a bit on the slow side, even, but has a decent crescendo.
The primary instruments are, piccolo, space voice, cello, polysynth, bottle blow, piano,and orchestra (Which seems to combine strings and horns)
To make it a little more interesting, I rendered it 3 times, the first time based on the standard 440 hz, then one with 398, then 402, When the 3 tracks were combined in Audacity, it produced a much more rich, interesting texture. I did a little experimenting to get to this level, first with larger differences, that made it sound really cool, but much too distorted.
The final polishing in Audacity, I used SIR, a convolution response tool, to bring about a more natural sound, instead of just reverb.
After rendering, I polished it up with Audacity.
