Music Composers Unite!
After months of theory and composition study, I've finally decided to undergo the task of composing an actual piece of mine. I chose a concert band instrumentation because being a member of a concert band, this is a familiar ground for me. This piece is entitled Seasons of the Ocean.
It begins nice and slow as I give a small introduction of my main theme with the woodwinds. A drum break enters picking up the tempo and a quick chromatic run with the saxophones open my main theme with an exciting entrance by the rest of the winds. After repeating my melody a few times, I move on to my ballad portion with a luscious trumpet solo. The rest of the winds enter reciting my second theme. A small woodwind part enters followed by the brass later, and slowly I start to leave the ballad. A horn solo is brought to revive the listeners of the first theme, in addition with a few new ideas, but before you know it, you're back with a powerful reprise of my first theme! A small twist is added in the reprise, and a small amount of dissonance is created, but is soon resolved with a powerful, exciting ending!
Here is the link to my first composition, Seasons of the Ocean, composed at age 15. I hope you enjoy!
