This is a science-fiction style piece inspired by some of my favorite film composers. It starts soft with an intro and then a softer A section led by a french horn. Then a reworking of the A section where the strings replace the woodwinds as the prominent supporting instruments. Then it moves into a bridge section, building the whole time. Then it finishes with an ending section that turns into a bit of a march.
To be honest, though I’m quite satisfied with the first sections and the bridge, I’m not quite there with the last section. It’s not exactly what I was going for and I’ll probably rewrite it at some point. But overall, I’m really happy with this piece and it’s probably the most detailed original piece I’ve written.
I used mostly BBC Symphony Orchestra, but I also used some other cymbals and chimes.
