23 June thru 2 July 2006.
MIDI-Contest: MidiEngine: SB Audigy 2 (WDM). Sequencer: Sibelius 4. MidiFont: Kontakt Player Gold (Sibelius Ed.). A simple melody/countermelody presented simply. A gentle, lilting piece with some power in it.
This is a hybrid. Scored for 1 piccolo, 1 flute, 1 clarinet in G, 2 English horns, wind chimes, 1 classical guitar, 1 hurdy-gurdy, and 1 overdriven electric guitar. Some images that carried me through the composition: floating in a gently rocking boat out at sea lying on my back looking up at the aurora borealis. Some influences: in this piece I seem to be channeling some aspect of 1970's Progressive Rock in my use of instruments; whether or not anyone else hears them, there were those influences in my mind as I wrote this.
