Okay, I realize this is my second post on the front page of the Listening Room, I just hope no one else goes and posts on one of my topics from a while back and brings it to the front page to make it 3 . Okay, so, I'm using black print to match the title of this song, "Something A Little Dark." For those of you who read my "Help! I'm using sharps!" post, this is the completed version of that. I added a third movement, as well as added percussion and changed the ending of the second movement.
This is titled "Something A Little Dark," because it is generally darker than most things I write... genius, huh?
The first two movements are pretty consistent with what I usually write, except it's in B minor. Oh no! Sharps! Oh well, I'll make up for it by writing something in C flat major some time... Other than the sharps, it does stay a bit more consistently in minor than most of my music that fluxuates between minor and major.
The third movement uses a lot more percussion than is typically found in my orchestral thingies, which is odd, considering I'm a percussionist...you might think I would use a lot more of it, but oh well
Other than that, for some reason I can't get the cello to decrescendo at the end, so that last note kind of sticks out... hope you enjoy it, and as always, I love comments!!!
