Music Composers Unite!

Not sure if I have ever posted this piece here. This is for string quartet.


The following should be taken, of course, with a pinch of salt and with tongue in cheek...

The underlying narrative of this piece is - episodes in the life of an everyman, as he
progresses through life.

The episodes can be roughly seen as:-
(a) Starting out facing the thick fog of uncertainty
(b) Missing the bleeding obvious - a pratfall
(c) Disagreement
(d) Hectic, incessant, unwielding, intolerant life
(e) Uncertain, hesitant steps in love
(f) The false comfort of alcohol/drugs
(g) Pitching one's ideas against the flow / the norm, and rejection
(h) Confusion at being totally ignored
(i) Demoralised, continues journey
(j) Gone to the dogs
(k) Continues journey heading towards.......?

To stop you from dangling, how about a soothing piece for string orchestra....

David, I gave this a second listen and have no doubt it is masterfully done.

You are very good at your art. It shows.

Honestly tho', I'm afraid that if I listen to it a 3rd time, the next day you will

find me dangling at the end of a rope. So if hopeless despair was your aim,

then man, you've succeeded. The antithesis of the romantic.        RS     (romantic sap) 

ps- very creative in a lonely tragic way

oops, sorry David, it followed right after listening to your piece

and I thought it was your's.  It was by some guy named 'Recommended'  : - {
