Sky in Motion

Uploaded on Sep 11, 2014

Ok, so this is my "final" version of this piece composed for and dedicated to Sepehr Keyhani (https://musescore.com/keyhani). I added "Sky" to the title because someone told me that "Sepehr" means "Sky", so it seemed appropriate. (If the translation is incorrect, that's just tough: this is the name of the piece now!) The feel is very movie score, and once I knew that the piece was going to have that feel, I ran with it--even "finishing" the composition by adding a solo intro line that (in a movie) would be played over the last two clever spoken lines from the two protagonists. Note: The "S-E-P-E-H-R" motif appears 42 times in the piece, not including partial or modified appearances.

Hi Arthur! I was wondering if you would like to submit this piece to a project I'm working on? https://musescore.com/groups/musescore-composers/discuss/4991799 (There are other discussions in various groups)
Now THERE'S a compliment I don't think I've ever gotten! Thank you!
Wow! How moving! Thank you Arthur.
Nice to meet you here! Do you know about our initiative fantasy notes? http://movingclassics.tv/initiative-fantasy-notes-contemporary-piano-at-moving-classics-tv-20172018/ would you like to participate? I would like to play and feature your beautiful piece!
Hello, Anna! I would be very interested in learning more about the Fantasy Notes initiative, and would be honored if you included "Sky in Motion". Tell me more!
Great! Are you in facebook by the way? We present every week a new composer with the profile, interview and I play and record one piece :))) I will share it in all social media :) It will be honor for me to feature you. if you are interested, I could send you the questions per email. my email is anna@movingclassics.tv
Dang how long did this take you? It's pretty good.
Thank you, Cody. I'm pretty sure I composed this in just a couple of weeks, a bit at a time. I know that I started it about a month before I performed it live for the first time, and in that time I'd managed to get the playing of it down pretty well!
An Amazing piece. I happened to read my e-mails this morning and there it stared at me from the screen ! An e-mail from musescore. I am new member to this community. I read the feature piece "Meet the MuseScorer of the month". Wow. What and incredible way to write. Lets just say that my eyes were drowning in tears as I heard "Sky In Motion". I had no choice than to listen to it over and over. God Bless !
Thank you very much! There really can't be much greater compliments that repeated listens and emotional connection! You've made my day.

Amazing! Thanks for sharing! In a way - I get a feeling that this also would have been a grand piece - on two pianos..? Beautiful work! Thank you!
Thank you, Marianne! I hadn't thought of a piece for two pianos! This would be fun arranged that way, certainly!
:-) It is great as it is, and it will be great for two piano's. Either way - great. :-)
Arthur; This piece is among your best pieces! I wish I could add it to my favorites for second time! and nice photo, it wasn't there before.
Thank you, Sepehr! It is certainly the piece that gets requested the most right now at my house concerts. I have a concert scheduled for next month and I intend to have it recorded -- AND to post video of Sky In Motion so I can do a video score of it instead of just the MuseScore playback!
Beautiful flowing piano piece. I like it a lot. Thanks for posting
Thank you! I'm working on getting a performance worth posting as a video score! Check back!
I've never seen a piece as good as this on Musescore!!! Amazing Job!
Thank you. While I sincerely appreciate the compliment and its sincerity, I think you will just need to keep looking and you will find many truly astounding pieces of music on MuseScore. Just in piano works alone, there is the outstanding music of Sepehr Keyhani (https://musescore.com/keyhani), Máté Pribelszky (https://musescore.com/matepribelszky), Florian Krüger (https://musescore.com/user/19326), and François Rousset (https://musescore.com/user/140125), just to name a very small few. We are fortunate to be surrounded by such talent in this online musical community!
Ah well this one of the first songs I listened to as I've only been a member for around a month now. Anyway, I'm excited to see what this site has to offer :D
Thank you, Nart. I'm currently trying to figure out how to orchestrate this like a classic movie score end credits. We'll see how I do!
Note: added fuller chords in the last section (beat 2 in 211, 213,215) to better match the piece as I have been performing it.
Hello Arthur, Don here. I especially like the part B with the three beats against two, very inventive, and it works quite well. I will remember that device. This is beautiful.
Thank you, Don. That part came as somewhat of a surprise. I didn't really even realize I was doing with the beats until I started writing it down. The melody there turned out to be quite beautiful as well. I should have a video recording this week to share.
That was absolutely beautiful! Keep up the damn good work!
Well done.It has been a pleasure to listen to.
Thank you, Eddy! It is very rewarding to know that you enjoyed it!
Sooooooooooo nice. Thanks for posting this for us to enjoy!
Thank you, Tollie. And the pleasure is at least partly mine as well!
Fixed the sheet music where the octaves had gotten off in the software somehow.
Pretty piece, very lyrical as said Fred. The second theme melody is beautiful, and somewhat atmospheric. Magnificent composition!
Thank you, Vincent. As compositions go, this one has many elements that I am very pleased with. It is easy to get lost in it, especially in that second theme.
Unreal composition! Reminds me of a video game piece. :)
Thank you, Kris! Video game music can be pretty amazing, and I'd love to compose for video games. I understand it is similar to movie score composing, but with some very solid differences in strategy.
Arthur, This piece is really nice! 'B' section is really lovely, I enjoyed it so much! and after that repeat of 'A' section after 'B' section is really delightful. As you said it's feel movie score. Specially romantic movies! About meaning of first name 'Sepehr' , in Persian means Sky. Also I surprised about this! FYI , my last 'Keyhani' name in Persian means Cosmic. There is a symmetry in my name. I enjoy this piece so much! Arthur Thank you so much! you surprised me so much!
You're welcome, Sky! ;) I have started picturing the imaginary movie as a romantic adventure. I hope you enjoy playing it, too. I think it is very rewarding to perform and can't wait for the audience to hear it next weekend.
Sweet, I think it's more like a song from a musical.
