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).
The first part is evocative, has high dynamics, syncopations, homophonic texture. The second part is hazy, thoughtful. The last part sounds more chamber and introduces atonality and polyrhythm.
Most of the libraries used in this track were created by Cinesamples. I was glad to use these easy to use libraries, which blend good with each other, being recorded in the same space. They do not always sound good with fast melodies, but it is a problem of most orchestral libraries today. Libraries used:
Cinesamples - CinePerc (Percussion)
Cinesamples - CineBrass (Brass)
Cinesamples - CineStrings (Strings)
Cinesamples - CineHarp (Strings)
Cinesamples - CineWinds (Woodwinds)
Realsamples - Dulcitone Celesta (Piano)
Soundiron - Voice of Gaia: Strawberry (Vocal)
8dio - Requiem (Vocal)
