So along with my more traditional classical music that I've shared here, I also do a fair amount of electronic / electro-acoustic instrumental work as well, in a more modern style and flair.
I'm curious for thoughts on this piece- most importantly the mix, and anything composition wise that could be improved.
This piece is part of an upcoming album under an independent music project that I've been running for several years now- the album tells a story, through music only and no words, of a nautical, "Coastal themed" adventure from start to finish.
This particular piece is the musical interpretation of just arriving into town after a long sail. Mingling with the locals, meeting new people, and activity buzzing and bustling about.
I had a few targets:
I wanted the many guitar parts to have their own space in the mix, so if a listener tried to hone in and listen to any individual guitar voice, they could do so. The many guitar parts are meant to be a musical representation of witnessing many activities happening about in the town, sort of as if you arrive, and you just start to look around and take it all in - you see so many things happening and going in different directions.
Due to the lack of vocals, I tried to have a pretty clear melody stand out at almost all times - the melody is executed by a few guitar voices that pass it back and forth here and there, but I had hoped it remained clear at all times.
