This string quartet seems an important stage of my musical development. This is the first time I achieved atonal quality writing each note and interval consciously without using serial techniques like retrograde inversions.
I used some ideas of Richard Strauss in the first minute of the piece. Piece has generally homophonic texture with diatonic melodies, which rarely change to atonal polyphonic texture. Most of phrases are short. Instruments use is sparce and free, leading to situation when some instruments play only in 2-3 places of the piece (this is the first time I do not try to balance instruments use).
My first house (electronic dance music) track written exclusively for orchestral instruments. The idea was to use only real instruments and real sound effects without any heavy processing except for equalizing, reverb and limiting.
My first minimal-atonal piano concerto for three quality piano libraries: Fazioli (intro and lower part), Alicia's Keys (higher part and finale), Mavericks. Each library has its own reverberation. The idea is that three pianos are played in a single hall:
Alternative opera for alto, soprano, strings and kalimba. Soprano vocal part is difficult, while alto is singable. This is my first project in Reaper and you can find a little information on migrating from Cubase to Reaper in my video tutorials on youtube. Libraries used:
Composition for a woodwind quintet using Sample modeling instruments (flute, oboe, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon). Starts with folclore theme and then travels into minimalism.
Composition for 6 french horns and orchestral percussion in romantic style with elements of minimalism and film music. For horn 2c-Aether reverb was used. For percussion equal portions of stage and far mics were used. Libraries used:
Sample modeling - Brass (Brass)
ProjectSAM - True Strike (Percussion)
This is a demo track created totally using EastWest Hollywood Orchestra Percussion. In introduction I used some gong bowing.
Painting to this track was created by Lidia Naumidis.
This is a demo track created totally using EastWest Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra (Play edition).
Used libraries: Sample Modeling (all woodwinds and brass), Spittfire Sable (strings), Soundiron Voice of Rapture: The Soprano, Soundiron Mars, Spitfire Hanz Zimmer Percussion (timpani).
