This is a piece I wrote the other week that has an Eastern/Central Asia feel to it. It mostly pentatonic, but not totally. I intended to try and capture the beauty and vastness of the landscapes of the area. It starts with a single voice then a bass flute and the Gofriller play along. Its followed by a short section with all the strings then goes into the main theme.
The main part has steel drums in the bass and the rest of the orchestra playing along. It starts with the Gofriller playing the melody then is repeated an octave up with the Stradivari. Both parts have different instruments accompanying them with gives them totally different feels.
Afterwords, the theme section is repeated with taiko drums playing the rhythm with a large reverb trying to represent the immense openness of the countryside. Its a bit repetitive, but I basically tried to write a theme and play around with it.
I hope you enjoy, and thanks for listening.
