Author Comments

this is a piece i wrote about an 18-19th century detective solving a murder using a Baroque orchestra setup.
I wrote this from a different perspective than normal, i usually know what i want, where i want it, and when i want it.
With this I decided to write as if I am writing a story, from beginning to end. So I shall explain the different parts.

0:00 - 00:28: This is the main theme for the detective, an image of him stand proud, and being admired by others for his work in solving crimes.

00:29 - 00:42: This is where the killer is about to commit his crime, nobody knowing it is going to happen and nobody knowing who he/she is.

00:43 - 01:14: This is where the body is discovered, and the detective is desperately trying to solve the case

01:15 - 01:50: The detective has found the killer and explains to others how and why he commited the crime, the criminal confesses to this crime with a smug type nature.

01:51 - 02:08: The criminal is tried in a court of law and is found guilty.

02:09 - End: The criminal is sentanced to death and this part shows the build up to his hanging, to where he is hung until dead. Justice has been given.

hope you enjoy and please review.

I was looking for this type of music last night and this one really hits the spot!
Love the mysterious feeling of unsolved crimes and investigation, you really got that into this piece!

Very, very nice. What program did you use?


sweet music


I love the baroque style you incorporated in the song. I also love the way you sectioned the parts of the song into a story-like way. THIS is a piece of music that DOES tell a story, and quite vividly. Good job, again.


good piece!

and a nice story within!!
really get the feeling of what you tell what is going on this and that time.
very well done! nice melody, it works fine with the story.. (would also work fine without it ^-^)
