So I don't think this piece is very "quality" in terms of how it's written. I do think it sounds good though, and I don't really know which to weigh more. That's the problem with these kind of, "only intended for the sound" type pieces. I know their objective to be really cinematic or whatever, but the orchestration just isn't very good. That said, I wrote this piece because a friend had a mother that really loved birds, so I wrote a piece trying to be serene with bird call emulations. She said she wanted that over the Pines of Rome-style bird calls. I hope you all enjoy.
Fair warning: sorry, it's kind of loud.
I also don't remember if I've posted this before, so if I have, just let me know and I'll put repost in there.
Thanks for your comments!
In general terms, I don't stay in a tonality, I am aware of that, and I like it.
Also, some "clashes" don't disturb me. In "It all comes back" there's anoter one even "harder": in m. 55 in the right hand there's a Db-Eb and a D at the same time. Weird? I don't mind, it's (for me) a way to create tension.
In other words, "the end justifies the means" in this case, I mean to say: if it sound good (to me, at least), I don't care about clashes or tonalities. In fact, I like to write the chords, but sometimes I can't (because of the dissonances or extended notes).
I can't honestly speak to the accuracy of the style imitation, but the only thing I find odd was mixing the Mixolydian and Major modes in the F major section at the end.
But as far as I can tell, it's pretty good and stays consistent throughout.
