This is a new piece I composed called “The UnExpected - a Tribute to America, September 11th, 2001 - Ten Years After.
I am about a week late submitting this composition as i wrote it the evening of September 11. I had been soaking in a lot of Sept 11 retrospectives (10 years later) and news pieces during the week leading up to the anniversary. So, when I sat down to just doodle and play my keyboard at the end of the day, I was the last person to think all this emotional stuff would come out. I remember asking myself, where did all this come from? The piano and solo violin parts were added that same night and some the next day.
The only part of this that is Garritan instrument is the Steinway grand. It is the main solo instrument and since Garry said there should be “some” Garritan instruments in the pieces we post in this forum, I figure i am OK.
So, putting all the conspiracy theories and political issues aside, I wanted to dedicate this to everyone who was in the least way affected by the events of September 11th 2001 (which is pretty well everyone) The trauma affected everyone greatly and still does. My heart especially goes out to those who were there or those who lost loved ones in the ordeal. Watching these events transpire 10 years ago from Canada, i cannot pretend to grasp or understand how many Americans felt and are still feeling whether they were close to New York or not.
I know one should wait till any previous pieces have cleared the front page but I have been waiting about a week for my last submission which was made in early July to move to the second page. (checking every day) Things are moving very slowly.
Any comments on the composition, rendering, mixing are always welcome as usual.
Thanks for listening!
