My first Lydian mode song. This took a surprisingly short amount of time to finish, I must be getting better at orchestral compositions lol.

Today I challenged myself to make a song in lydian mode, and it was a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Whenever I wrote a melody naturally, it almost always wanted to resolve in the Ionian or Aeolian relative tonal centre so I really had to restrict myself.

It was a fun exercise, but I don't see myself composing with this mode too often in the future, it's not as flexible as I'd like it to be.

But it turned out okay I guess :P

I might revisit it in the future and move some stuff around, maybe even add 1 or 2 more sections

Edit: I thought the 4th part would sound more interesting with some modulation so I moved everything up 2 semitones. I had to manually do this for all the instruments 😑, I wish there was an easier way to automate this in FL Studio

Edit Again: Also it turns out one of my earlier Jamuary submissions was in Lydian mode. I only just realized it after going back and listening to it again 😂. Didn't occur to me sooner because I wasn't really thinking about music theory when I made the other one
