Symphony Of Sights

Recommended Posts

This is the first movement to my first symphony, I don't know if there will be a second symphony. It is programmatic, visual and very cinematic. Sort of like a score without a film. I'm still working on the other movements and will release them as they come.

I love the variation and instrumentation but when I try to imagine an image or landscape it changes quickly and I am forced to imagine something different immediately. I hear a lot of ideas that can be pieced together as one, however everything compliments each other neatly.

Around 5:50 onward I hear a lot of darker themes that remind me of Danny Elfman hahaha.

The full sound is very present here which is always a good thing and there was never a dull moment, repeated or waiting time.

Overall I think it sounds amazing.

This is spectacular! It's really a lovely soundscape, and you really paint vividly with the scoring. There was a strong general sense of the American west throughout all the changes in mood and texture. I love your orchestration and the textures you use here. It really is beautiful. 

Its an interesting concept for a symphony. Certainly speaks to the ability of music to allow us to imagine perspectives outside our own. The idea reminds me a lot of Mahler's 3rd (What the Flowers Tell Me, What the Animals Tell Me, etc.)

Only question: Why did you not include the score?

Thanks, guys, for your comments on the music. I have not heard the Mahler but I'll definitely check it out.
