This started out as a piece for a competition for a theme for a female character in a game. It didn't sound very feminine to me so I shelved it in favor of another one that I have already posted here.
For some reason the name of this piece is Crosius, and I can't seem to find out what that means or who it is, but I am sure that the name is right, although the spelling may not be correct.
If I knew more about Crosius, I am sure I would be able to explain the music, but since I know absolutely nothing, all I can do is present it here in hopes that you find it enjoyable.
Edit: I rarely name a piece before I compose it or even during the composition phase. Usually at some point, the piece just tells me its name. Well about half way thru the composing of this, the Name Croseus kept jumping into my head. I ignored it at the time since the piece was supposed to be about Syrah. Once I realized I was composing a masculine piece, I started to listen more to the name of Croseus. I named the piece that and then stuck it up on the shelf. I did try to find out who the guy was, but kept spelling it wrong. I believe that RichR found out who this guy is and his description is below.
I have posted this piece on another site, and here is a reply (the only reply) from there.
......Overall...the composition is ok. But, it seems like a computer made this. Its very mathmatical , or algorithmic sounding. But, its hard for me to decipher a theme or story. But, maybe that was your exact intention?
But, I think your direction in this sound is the exact opposite that appears to my sensibilities as a composer, hence the moderate distaste.
Probably says more about me. Haha....
Just thought that it was interesting since I am a Mathematician!
Here is Crosius:
As always, comments are appreciated.
Thanks to RichR for the following
"Wealthy king of Lydia who conquered most of Asia Minor. He was the last king of Lydia; reigned from about 560 to 546 bc. Croesus and the Lydians were defeated by the Persians at Thymbra.
Croesus, son of Alyattes, later endorsed his father's policy of conquering the Ionian cities of Asia Minor. However, unlike his father, he maintained a friendship with the Greeks, and gave refuge to Athenian statesman Solon at one point. In 547 B.C. while preparing for a campaign against Cyrus the Great, he allied with Amasis II of Egypt and Nabonidus of Babylonia. Feeling optimistic, he led his campaign and was intercepted at the Halys River near Anatolia where a significant, but undecided battle was fought. Croseus later disbanded his army for winter; however, Cyrus did not and was able to capture Croseus in Sardis. Croesus supposedly threw himself upon a funeral pyre."
So I did spell it wrong.
