Hey guys!! I'm back with another composition :D

For mobile users - you won't be able to listen to the full score without the youtube audio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MRYcc_DZeeA (the youtube video was posted nearly a week ago so some of you may have already seen this piece)

NOW BEFORE I GET INTO THE DESCRIPTION OF THIS PIECE I'D LIKE TO FEATURE SEVERAL SCORES. This score isn't a follower special or anything, but I don't care :P. I've noticed compositions popping up in several places inspired by me...and dang I don't know what more I could ask for. Thanks so much guys for making those scores - it means a lot to me :D

Just keep in mind that if you want to use my music for anything other than personal enjoyment, you must contact me and ask permission first. The people above have all done so, and I appreciate that :D (just to clear things up: those who compose original pieces inspired by me DO NOT have to ask permission, as I do not own any part of their piece and am merely a source of inspiration. HOWEVER, if you use MY WORK in any way, you MUST ask permission)


This is my second try at writing for a small string orchestra and a few other parts (first try was my Heartbeat Song). Holy CRAP it's time consuming...if you can write something for full orchestra in less than a week I now worship you (pointing this at all you geniuses on here who can actually do that) :P

Anyway...the other reason this took so darn long (nearly 2 months :o) was because I slacked off a bit during August, and then school and IB hit, which left very little time for composing. Now those of you who are in the program...you know what it's like (and I don't wanna go off on a rant cause I've already done that enough xD).

ANYWAY...I called this Dawn because of its golden hues for my synesthetic brain :P. New stuff I tried: a new structure that doesn't remotely follow the ABABCB structure I used in most of my other compositions (at least kind of). And string writing, of course (I don't actually know how to properly do this...I just tried following SATB voice leading rules, I guess?). But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :D

Btw I didn't (and won't) upload the full score just so it doesn't get plagiarized. I won't give it out to anyone either under any circumstances. However, I've provided an easy piano reduction for those of you that might want to play it - several of you have asked me to make easier pieces in the past, so here's one :D

And one final announcement: you may have noticed that I crossed 600 followers a while ago, but haven't posted a special. That's cause I'm not going to. I've noticed that I don't have all the time in the world to compose...and the time it takes me to compose at most 2 serious compositions I'm proud of is around the time it takes me to gain 100 followers. And since I always make my follower specials something I'm proud of, it's starting to look like I'm composing only for the followers (which I'm not). From now on, I'll only post a follower special every 250 followers, so the next one will be at 750 :D
