NGADM 13 - Round 4 (Quarter-Finals): SoundChris vs. johnfn
Hey there people, this is my round four submission for the NGADM´13 - contest. After i had composed several pieces with lots of instruments i wanted to try out some solo instrument piece. I am a big fan of spanish culture and musics, so i decided to compose some flamenco-style piece for classical guitar (I am not a guitar player so this is my first real journey into the world of guitar music and i think it wont be the last time because this piece was so extremely fun to make!). I wanted the sound to be as realistic as possible. Thats why i composed without following the DWAs grid but composed everything just by ear.
The piece is inspired by the Zorro - novels. Esperanza de la Vega was the wife of Diego de la Vega, who was a spanish nobleman who lived in his mansion on the countryside of California in the middle of the 19th century. He was known as a very careful and shy man, but by night he turned into Zorro - the avenger of the poor and dispossessed - and fought for the californian people. The song shell embody the beauty and wildness of his wife Esperanza (she is the woman who hums in the beginning of the piece).
I have just used a Flamenco Guitar and Dancer Steps and just very few castanet sounds to create the sound - so overall its a solo instrument piece.
