This took me ages to do. I originally wanted to do a whole orchestral piece because I'd never done a full one before. However my first attempts failed so I ended up doing a string quartet. After I composed that I went back to the orchestra and worked on that some more. Then I decided to put the quartet after the orchestral part, and then add some orchestra over the top of the strings, hence the seemingly random changes in melody. I wanted it to be crazy like a person on halloween running from little kids with sharp plastic knives, so I purposefully made it a bit all over the place, try to picture it like a series of events over one night.

This movement has 6 different time signatures, some of which are repeated. These are 6/8, 3/4, 9/8, 2/2, 12/16 and 4/4. It also contains 3 different key signatures which are Ab Major, D minor and I think C minor. This is one of the reasons it took me a while and started to become a real mind fuck.

It's not my favourite piece by a fair bit, but feel that there is no harm in uploading it seeing as it took me so long. I hope your sitting, UNcomfortably :)

Mmmmm get better plugins

i find it a difficult piece to listen to.
It's not bad but very hard to stay focused in.

In stead of being just one song it is a concerto.

Try to get better instruments It would be better if i would not here the repeat sample. That starts to work on the nerves and makes me edgy.

Other that i really like the composition. But the sampled sounds don't do it justice.
8/10 4/5


ArdyParty responds:

A concerto is a classical piece based around one instrument with a backing of usually an orchestra, e.g. a violin concerto, where the violin plays lead partsand it has an orchestra playing harmony. This really isn't a concerto.

But I know what you mean about the plug-ins. Oh wells.
