A piece for orchestra and choir that I'm stuck on

Recommended Posts

Started this piece but I can't decide if I should further develop the second section or if its the right time to start a new section. Any help is much appreciated, and if this isn't the proper way to use this site let me know

From the 54" it's difficult to see how it could go. You have several choices depending if you have a climax in mind later on. You can continue with the dirge style adding at least another brighter layer, change the harmony a bit, a different tonal centre. You could bring in a melody at the 54" or just after, that could be developed. Needn't be a long melody, could be one or more motifs that can be bent into different variations over a harmony.

Can I ask what destiny you had in mind for this piece? A game, a film? The mood comes across as somewhat baleful.

I don't really know what I intend this piece to be used for, I guess it just kind of symbolized a descent into the depths. I haven't really tried to make something that represents an encounter with evil yet, usually my pieces tend to point to a more magical optimistic perspective so it's fun to work out these new muscles.

I'll try out those ideas. I just didn't want to have something nice turned into something redundant but at the same time I tend to kill my pieces before they really get a chance to express themselves. This is all new to me. Thanks for the help Quinn!
