Modern Classical, non-avante-garde
Creative Vision for the Track:
To give expression to that which only music can express, to hone my symphonic/orchestration skills,
To write music that I like to listen to.
Composition Details (Tempo, Key, Main Chords etc):
This is the 4th and last movement of a 4-movement work for virtual orchestra (for lack of a better term–one person cannot in reality be an orchestra!). The opening motive in the softsynth appears regularly throughout the movement. The strings introduce a main theme at measure 13 that is also used repeatedly in different orchestrations and textures. I don’t often write in a “key”, but rather I move from key-feeling to key-feeling. I employ chromaticism in both my melodies and harmony but I would not say my music is dissonant, I seek balance between consonance and dissonance, it’s really the balance between the two that gives me the most musical satisfaction. This is a work slightly over 10 minutes in length, if you have the time and patience to listen I think you will find it worth your time…
Main Instruments used:
Vienna Symphonic Library Orchestral Cube, Requiem Pro and East-West Choirs, software synthesizers Dune, Zebra
