This piece is about the unpredictability of my emotions and thoughts. My mind is just like a rollercoaster sometimes.

I have made this with Edirol Orchestral, SampleTank and a piano VSTi. Maybe it's a little too dramatic, but that's just how my mind works. I hope you'll like it.

Dissonance... and motion related thereof... an amazing thing to use, and most people are too scared to try out some good dissonance.

I think you could have tried to work on reducing the repetitiveness a bit and presenting new themes and more dramatic changes, especially with such a small ensemble where such changes are near required. Certain instruments seem to perform the same role throughout, and although that's perfectly fine, sometimes switching things around can show you something you never thought of before.

I enjoyed this piece considerably. I only wish it were for a larger ensemble, but it's perfectly fine with the instrumentation it presently has. There isn't much motion, throughout the piece... it essentially just wanders. If that's the feel you want (it sounds like it is by your description), that's fine, but a lot of people like orchestral pieces that take them on a journey.

A very fine piece nonetheless, best of luck!

Thanks for the great review.

I have been composing music for orchestra for the past five years now, in my room, usually at night, as an amature, since I was 15. When I started, I really had no idea what I was doing. At that age I had never really listened classical music or something like that. I was just extremely inspired by Yann Tiersen. I loved everything about his music, especially the way he put his emotions into it. I also wanted to turn my own emotions into music.

Years went by and my pieces began to get weirder and weirder. I actually began to push too many themes in one piece. Eventually I couldn't be satisfied because the pieces where not coherent enough in my opinion.

That is why I wanted to take a step back with this piece, to go back to the simplicity I started with, but still with the expierience I now have. I hope this explains the repetitiveness and the fact that there aren't any more themes.

Maybe I've gone back to simplicity too far. I'm still searching for the right middle.

I agree about the journey thing, I also like orchestral pieces that take me on a journey. That's why I'm obsessed by symphonies like the 3th, 4th, 5th and 6th of Prokofiev, the 2nd of Rachmaninov, 5th, 10th and 11th of Shostakovich, etc. Everyone should know those pieces. Especially Prokofiev's 5th! Prokofiev was a true master! But to get back to the topic, I'll try to upload some different stuff that is more of a journey, but I've got to tell you those pieces are weird and extreme. There are a few pieces that I cannot complete, because the computer with the files had crashed. I will upload these as soon as possible. Right now the submit area of NG is having some problems, so I'm not able to submit audio just yet, but I will keep trying.

I hope I haven't forgotten anything.
