In January 2011 I started to compose this piece, but IÃ'´ve never managed to finish it. It was the first time for me to make something in this particular style.

The meaning is somewhat complicated. In October 2010 one of my best friends died after a long battle with brain cancer. With this piece I actually asked myself to live on without forgetting about the past. I tried to make something positive instead of something pessimistic, although it contains some dramatic parts. There are different sections, each having a different personal meaning within the general meaning of the whole piece. Also there are some metaphors. For example, the contrabasses symbolize myself and the motif they play in the beginning symbolize my life. The french horn section symbolizes the one that passed away and the timpanis announce his death.

The piece starts really quietly, actually too quietly in my opinion. The contrabass motif shouldÃ'´ve been a little louder there. As I have never finished it (and I never will, because I've lost the file), I'm nowhere near satisfied with it. The ending in particular is terrible. Furthermore the piece lacks coherence. There are some recurring motifs, but the ending is totally different than the beginning, or the middle, because of the different sections. I wanted to continue the piece with recurring motifs from the beginning, but unfortunately this has never happened.

Still I think there some good melodies in the piece and it has a lot of powerful personal energy to me. It also helped me develop more composing skills. If I'd try to compose a new version now, it would be better, but I think I will be focusing on new projects in the future.

I really liked this, definitely not the type of music i expect to find on the AudioPotal, but then again it is a place full of surprises... And what a pleasant surprise this was! All the instrument sound very full and rich (with the exception of the piano which i disliked) and the composition was simply wonderful. I was grabbed immediately by the opening motif and when the counter melodies joined in i was certain the piece was going to be brilliant. The constantly changing melodies, the variation in instrumentation and even the changes in tone and mood were such a nice contrast to the repetition of other genres found here. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this, and have downloaded it to listen to add to my music library. All in all a really nice listen, and i thank you for sharing it!


Pointrick responds:

I'm a little late but thank you. I, too, thought the piano didn´t sound so good, but I wasn't so sure, as one of my friends once said he "especially liked the piano". Didn't understand that at the time and I still don't. Too bad I didn't finish this piece.

But thanks for making my day : )
