A Light at the End

Uploaded on Mar 13, 2019

It's finished at last (only took me 5 months)! This is my first original composition and I would really appreciate any and all feedback, comments, ideas, favorites, follows, etc.

This piece is about my friend group during our sophomore year of high school. It is very dark and angry because, weeeeeellllllll...
One of us had a stalker for over 3 months
One of us suffered severe panic attacks for another 3 months
Typical high school suckiness

Aaaaaanyways, I decided the best way to tell the story was through music, since I enjoy writing music and my writing (as in books) skills are very, very bad.

Each section of instruments (i.e. low brass) represents a particular person throughout the first three movements of the piece, showing their personality through the music (i.e. angry low brass=person with short temper). The fourth movement is more hopeful than the rest and throw pretty much every thing before it out the window, showing a sort of new beginning after all the bad stuff that happened.

A special thanks to PigPag for the comments on the earlier versions of this score! They were very useful in editing and revising (also I think he holds the record for longest reply XD).

Also a special thanks to the "Squad", my friends, who have made high school a lot better through their support (and their humor).

The title of this piece came from a saying my friend would tell me whenever I would get depressed or angry: "There's a light at the end of the tunnel, you just can't see it yet".

God bless y'all and please enjoy my first original composition: "A Light at the End".
