Here is a new piece I completed. It is a straight orchestral piece with a slight “underscore” feel to it.
For this piece, the instrumentation is as follows:
1 Bb Clarinet
1 Tenor Trombone
My creative vision for this piece was inspired by the anime, “Violet Evergarden.” I wanted to compose music that was similar to the underscore of the series by composer Evan Call and sort of told the story line through music that had an emotional fell to what I experienced watching the show.
This piece is in the key of F minor with an andante tempo for the beginning and moves to the relative Ab major for the more ‘playful’ part in the middle with a change to a moderate tempo, all 4/4 time. For the outro/ending, I did a rallentando to a largo tempo with a final key change to Eb major and 6/8 and 3/8 time. I also snuck in a bit of a variation on Evan Call’s original “Violet Evergarden” theme just to bring it home a bit.
Music was made using Dorico Pro notation software with NotePerformer, with audio bounced to StudioOne 4 where I added Valhalla Room reverb, a bit of compression and mastered with Ozone 9 (which I still haven’t mastered using )
