here’s my first entry in one of Mike’s contests.
In Welsh mythology, Annwn (pronounced Anoon) is a mystical island or underworld whose inhabitants are basically living like we are doing in our world but are much happier than in ours. The myth says, that people can enter and leave it without harm. So I imagined a person wandering through a forest then, by accident, getting a glance of this parallel world and returning safely where he left.
To get this mystical feeling a magical world usually provokes I used many woodwinds, like really… MANY. I’m using basically everything EW Hollywood Woodwinds provides, except Contrabass Clarinet and Piccolo. Also dulcimer (in fact qanun), harp and lush, wavy strings, and the magical sound of my Nyckelharpa. The finale is then played on some Hurdy Gurdy voices before everything calms down again.
I’m looking forward to your opinion and hope you like it
