Another pure D.A.W. composition, this time with a little more to it, being the longest composition I've created to date. As always, my music feels unrelated, but they still fit each other some way even if the theme changes midway, and this one truly has a theme twist that I'm very humbly satisfied with. If you think about it, it's like a tale of a wanderer who lost his way, and describes some of his adventures and/or experience(s) along the way. Such experiences would be excitement mixed with fear, as in the excitement to explore accompanied with the awareness of whatever could go wrong. Then true adventuring as he goes through his way, learning and adapting to his surroundings. Followed by challenges and obstacles that come his way, and how he fights through, using all his previously gained experience, then roaring through his way. Then comes the emptiness or the disappointment (could be pictured as betrayal of an ally), as it amplifies into anger mixed with regrets and sadness, and later.. vengeance & determination. That's how I like music really, when it tells a story just by the music itself, lyrics are not necessary, but this leads to what happens in my tracks like the feeling of detached unrelated parts, and my goal in this musical journey of mine is to accomplish the mastery of such storytelling through music without having gone too much out of the general theme in such a quick time. I hope you enjoy it!
Hello everyone, As promised, I am sharing some of my compositions. These are all part of an ongoing project I have called Into Infinity. It is definitely in the rock/metal categories, with significant progressive influences and occasional orchestral accompaniment. I have written and released two short albums and one single, for a total of 9 songs. I compose all of my music via Noteflight, and since I lack the skill and equipment of a good singer, I replaced the vocal melodies with piano. The link on this post directs to my Bandcamp page. Please note, however, that I am not a very serious composer, and I have studied very little music theory. Don't ask me to analyze any of my arrangements, because there's a good chance I won't be able to. I tend to write what sounds pleasing to my ears, rather than what is theoretically "correct." So, I imagine some of these songs (particularly 'For The Good Of All') will make absolutely zero sense to those particularly theory-minded individuals among you. Anyway . . . here's the first Into Infinity release, Sector 4: Sector 4 1. For The Good Of All (6:12) 2. Breathless (8:05) 3. Contemplative (5:49) 4. The Threshold (10:00) This is my first album, released in August of 2015. It is a rock opera based upon a NaNoWriMo novel I wrote once, about a city in the sky divided into 4 sectors, primarily along economic lines. The 4th sector is extremely poor, and the government decides to raze it (including its poverty-stricken residents) and rebuild. A massive protest divides the city, but the plan goes on. The main character, the 16-year-old son of an influential city leader, falls in love with a girl from the 4th sector, and tries to save her from the genocide. The two are forced into hiding, but eventually are found. In reaction to their strict sentences, they escape and decide to jump out of the city, into the abyss. The album is a bit diverse, with the first two tracks being more in the metal vein and the third being a ballad. The closing track is a long, dramatic epic split into 3 parts. <iframe style="border: 0; width: 400px; height: 274px;" src="https://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/album=1848294316/size=large/bgcol=ffffff/linkcol=0687f5/artwork=small/transparent=true/" seamless><a href="http://intoinfinity.bandcamp.com/album/sector-4">Sector 4 by Into Infinity</a></iframe> Thank you for your attention and especially if you happened to listen to any of the compositions. I'd be appreciative of any feedback you may wish to provide, but don't feel obligated to listen to any of it if you don't want to. Have a nice day, Jack W
