I posted a part of this song here a week ago, and I just finished the full piece. It was a massive load of work for me and I learned tons of it. Not just composition wise but also on how to use GPO. It still doesn't sound as good as I know GPO could but I hope it's enjoyable nevertheless.
The song is structured into three partand depicts the story of a friendship falling apart. Each part lists about 2:30:
I: A Friendship Forever. The early period, fairly happy and upbeat, but with some underlying tension.
II: A Matter of Opinion. The period during which the friendship falls apart. Big eruptions mixed with brass/woodwind instruments struggling among themselves.
III: Variations on Regret. Looking back at it all, fairly sad and depressed.
Any comments, suggestions and critique very much appreciated!
