Guest posted a topic in Orchestral and Large EnsembleA small prelude written for my English class - background music for a model based on the setting from A. Huxley's "Brave New World". In this composition, I tried to reproduce the cheap and ignorant, grotesque cheerfulness of Huxley's bizarre world of artificiality. Also, I thought that the concept of all-seeing eye would fit the dystopian nightmare. The pillar of this prelude is my loose improvisation in A major - one of the most happy and cheery keys, in my opinion. Thank you for listening!
I attached the final two movements as just MP3's, as I have yet to upload them to YouTube. This is my most extended piece of music, which was completely over the period of about 6 days. It consists of nine movements for orchestra based around Dante's Inferno, a description of Hell. The score may need some revision, but the work as a whole is ~160 pages, so minor revisions are to be put off. Enjoy, and check out my YouTube channel for a more in-depth description of some of the individual pieces.
