Hello lovely peoples!
Well, i seem to be getting back on track (no pun intended) and working on a completing some tracks. Here’s the first on I completed, called “A Little Violin Noire.” I did this in a few hours and ended up stying up all night but I had this idea pop into my head right before bed, and, well, I just couldn’t let it go.
The result here, is a solo violin piece with a bit of a Macabre/Noire type of feel to it. i had been watching a show called, “Shadow House,” which has a little bit of a Victorian Gothy vibe to it and the music follows suit, so i wanted to write something that was like the score to a mystery/Goth scene, kind of like a character(s) searching a creepy abandoned mansion looking for clues.
Not much in the way of specifics for the music, as I wrote it mostly free tempo, but some of the phrases follow a standard 4/4 at about 90bpm. Mainly in the key of D Harmonic minor, sometimes straying into G harmonic minor. I used Spitfire solo violin for this and run through the Abbey Roads J37 emulator and mastered with iZotope Ozone 9
