I wrote this yesterday in response to Skysaw's challenge, and posted it in his thread. I figured I may as well post it here too, for everyone else's consideration.
I hate the title: "this place i once called home" and find it pretentious and sappy. Any suggestions on a better title would be appreciated.
It's at the bottom of this page: www.uglybassett.com/concertmusic
INSTRUMENTATION: (all GPO and JABB)
Violin (Gagli Solo KS) - with some fancy delay processing
Trumpet (JABB Tpt 1 with harmon mute) - also with some delay
Tuba (GPO Tuba, run through some overdrive and tape saturation)
Harp (Chromatic Harp 1)
Anyway, I don't post demos here nearly enough, so I figured I'd submit it--it's kind of a moody piece, perhaps a bit cinematic in an ambient neo-noirish sort of way. (Skysaw's theme was "bittersweet" and this is what came to mind).
Any thoughts would be appreciated (criticism welcome as well)...
P.S. Another GPO piece on this page is "not the moon" which I submitted here a year or two ago. I think everything else on the page is live musicians.
