Firstly hello again, I've been away a long time, been busy with work and bands and concerts and such things. It's great to see new faces and the old ones too Hope everyone's doing well!
I've just finished recording a new (old) piece. I was listening through a few old pieces and I thought 'The Road To You' could use revisiting. I've re-done the piece from scratch, with new instrumentation and new arrangement and orchestration. I've tried to keep the punchy 6/8 feel but I've totally started again from scratch with what I know now about orchestration and instrumentation. The middle section has been completely re-composed to have an interesting descending-thirds set of cyclic key changes.
Here are the links:
John Hawksley - The Road To You (2006) (7 MB)
.. and the whole catalogue is at:
For the majority that never heard the original, the piece is a partly gentle, partly punchy pop composition.
Patches: the bulk of the orchestration is all GPO. Percussion is LOP. Drums are Drum Series 1. Afro percussion is from Afro-Cuban Percussion. Strummed guitars are Nashville High-Strung Guitars, and Pure Guitars Ovation. Bass is Scarbee. Solo flute and bassoon is from Dan Dean Solo Woodwind Lite. All pianos are from Roland A90-EX/VE-RD1.
I hope you get a kick out of it folks
All the best,
