A Peaceful Piece for Solo Piano and String orchestra, I hope to use this in something longer, but maybe some other time. The piano is me playing (: - https://youtu.be/a2rSDi0EIHQ
I actually came up with this theme on the fly, it took me as long as the piece is to write it (well, the piano part, it took longer for the strings haha)

Sorry the audio is a little quiet, I should fix that... :/

Hello everyone! this piece is something I've been refining in my head over a year or so, and I finally decided to record it! So here is my longest piece to date lol. I wasn't sure what to call it, I thought of calling it "Impromptu" and such, but I decided to call it a sketch :)
But I'll also give it the sub name "A Song of the Night Breeze". (but then I realize the painting has nothing to do with the name lol)

The Results are in and I was not selected as a winner, so for 3 years I have been good enough but not never enough for a winning slot I guess haha, Congratulations to the winners though, I'm sure they deserve it (:
Huge thanks to Brinson Moore for doing the audio for me! PAINTING HERE - https://d1lfxha3ugu3d4.cloudfront.net/images/opencollection/objects/size4/32.845_PS2.jpg
Hey! I'm really excited about this project because it has so much to explore. this piece is probably not what you're expecting from the name, but I chose the name because of the title of the painting.
I see in the painting 3 major things. the waves, sunset, and the clouds. I have 3 main themes that will be used in this piece, the "Waves" theme, the "Sun" theme, and the "Clouds" theme.

I really like writing in this style, material seems to come a little easier when I do this type of piece than other styles I do. anywho, I hope you enjoy what I have so far! :D

A Work in Progress, mostly just getting ideas down. Ideas are welcome!

There are some techniques that are used that soundfonts can't really replicate, so it would sound different in real life :)
Also the last chord would be a volume swelled bell attack like how Baroque pieces usually end :)

so I wanted to try out the new soundfonts I got (it's super cliche I know lol). The Strings and Suspended Cymbal are from the VSCO2 collection (brass and heavy percussion are not)

just an experiment, so let me know if it is good or bad hahaha :D I was inspired to write this from a few sources, but one of the most noticeable might be the Paddington 2 music from the dream/story scene of paddington telling his aunt lucy about being in prison.

Night Time Poem | HQ Audio

"The night goes on without a care, and toward the sky a lonely stare,
all the homes are shut up tight, as mommy and daddy say goodnight.
How long it seems to be away, as I watch to see the coming day,
“goodnight dear world” I say in a whisper, and the evening air seems a little more crisper.
And as I hear the crickets creak, I slowly start to fall asleep."
- Robin Butler

A very simple peaceful Nighttime piece for Solo Piano, perfect for falling asleep to ;)

- The subtitle could also be "Floating in Space" (because of the image Vigo got listening to it, and now I see it too lol)
A calm piece for String Orchestra with a very free chord progression.
It doesn't really have a melody, but its melody is within the chords allowing your own ears to pickup a melody that may or may not be different from what another person hears :)
Audio made with Edirol Orchestral: Slow Strings mixed with Full Strings.
