Meditations of a weary mind II

Recommended Posts

Here is the second part of the piece I sent a couple of weeks ago. Looking forward to feedback!

(Description: I wrote two pieces for piano and a treble instrument around easter as a meditation exercise. The resulting music is what I have titled here as (meditation) I and II. In view of the project with the Sepia Ensemble, I decided to flesh out the music that I developed and arrange it for the instruments, which the ensemble offers. I left the piano and treble part untouched and only elaborated and amplified the fundamental ideas with the help of new instrumental parts.)

I like how you realised the meditation by circling around the same basic motive, but with different inflections, so to say. Much more cheerful than the other meditation (though with ominous sounds sprinkled into it here and there) through a good use of tonality. I think both pieces complement each other well. For the overall mood, it is fine that the second meditation is longer than the first one. 

The length is also fine as the basic idea is sufficiently elaborated by breaking it into Klangfarbenmelodien and has run its course in the framework of the contemporary style.

Thanks for the feedback!

Yes I posted a youtube link. If it does not work you can find the music by typing (Constant Goddard: Meditations of a weary mind II - Sepia Ensemble )into the youtube search bar.

Very cool piece! Lots of cool effects. It's great background music for certain types of scenery. I can't seem to describe the feeling using words. Mysterious, maybe...
