instrumental quartet_of_octets one strings
First track of my "Quartet of Octets", This one is all strings - others will be brass, woodwind and mixed.
There's a building tension... ominous... something bad is bound to happen... I like how you're exploring each orchestral family with the concept of your octets. Cinematic, and a pleasure to listen to!!
great work on this. Should be a tension cue .Love the thematic development.
A very atmospheric piece. I feel like it's a political drama set in somewhere in the 18th century with someone plotting for the throne like Francis Underwood. The heavy curtains and the decorated hallways with mahogany furniture and tapestries are ripe with situations to stab the political adversary in the back both metaphorically and literally.
Sounds really fine. Like real classical music! 😀 The overall sound of the octet is lively and vibrant and I like the development and variations. So sad melody, reminds me of winter - white and cool.
ooh tense and ominous. lovely steps in the progression, really interesting textures and subtle dynamics, very nice.
This oozes soundtrack quality. I was ready for the movie to begin! Nice mix, is that East-West Strings?
The martial, angular opening lines make me think Prokofiev. But then the repeated elements and longer melodies bring a minimalist to mind. It makes for a really interesting hybrid. Terrific work!
cinematic treatment in future?
Lovely marching along...on the verge of breaking frantic! Instantly conjured up images in my head! Awesome composition!!
Nicely done, this has a really tense, slightly sinister vibe to it. Love those rhythmic bits (cello?) that drive it along, and it really evolves well into the different sections. Excellent composition!
Oooh, quite different stuff this year. Sounds great. Really builds nicely with lots of tension. I look forward to the brass and the strings!
Mmm, this really pulls me in. I like all the different qualities of string playing coming together, and the rhythm really keeps it flowing. I'm imagining a sea, that's kind of how the strings carry the piece through. Really lovely! And then that poor string at the end! I felt so sad for it! I think it's an effective choice -- my soul really wanted a comforting full quick chord at the end to feel resolved. Love it!
Cool! Quite different from what I expect (or at least, remember expecting) from you, but this is very involving and dynamic; there's a lot of forward momentum and tension here. I enjoyed this (new?) direction, and look forward to the remaining three octets.
