It\'s for medium sized orchestra, and is just two minutes long. It is fairly neo-classical in flavor, and features some very pretty woodwind work.
I originally wrote this for a World Bank documentary, using my old Proteus modules and other synths. It was mostly orchestral, but had other strange sounds in it as well. I\'ve rewritten it to be a purely orchestral work. It was fun getting the orchestra to imitate the original\'s inclusion of a choir of rubbed wine glasses at the end.
I\'ll have to listen again to the pizzes. In the original piece, they were actually much more prominent, partly because the sample I was using had a sharper attack. I\'ll have to balance the more spread attack with balance and reverb.
Hi Jamie. Good stuff. My only suggestion would be to have more variety in the form. What I\'m thinking is that either the middle or end could be more dynamic, have more tension. Right now, it\'s kind of one feeling throughout, a bit of a straight line.

I don\'t think it necessarily needs more dramatic tension. There\'s plenty of renaissance music I love precisely because it\'s so undramatic, like an ever-changing little stream in the woods, and every time I listen to it, it\'s like hearing it for the first time.
Got back in touch with an old composition-major buddy after a couple of decades\' lapse, and the first thing out of his mouth was, \"Stravinsky still rules!\"
Yes, the piece is very even in level and tension throughout, but it was written as an underscore for a brief montage section of a film. It was designed to disappear if and when necessary. Not my favorite way to work, but I liked what came out of it.
