Birth, it's such a wonderful thing, isn't it? The creation of life and light, bringing a new life into the world, how incredible it is! I must say, when I thought about writing a piece to depict such a thing, I knew I gave myself a difficult task.

And yet, I went about it anyway.

This piece is composed for a string orchestra with harp, a violin solo, and a bass drum. The bass drum is a constant heart beat to show the life that exists before and after the miracle of birth. The rising and falling chords represent breath, the very base of life. And the entire piece represents the wonder and magic of birth. There is a lot of light imagery that I see in this piece.

Do enjoy this piece that I have written, and don't hesitate to vote fairly, review, favorite it if you love it, and share it if you wish!

It's a very beautful piece.

It's an ode to the beauty of a new life. But, if you're depicting birth, shouldn't there be the feeling of blood, sweat and tears in there somewhere? Along with a screaming woman? Just a thought..

PenguinSam responds:

Actually, there is a hint of that! The section from 3:27 to 3:45 is the actual moment of birth. You can hear that the chords have clashing notes within them.

I'm glad you ejoyed the piece, and your review is much appreciated!
