Sky Walking � an introduction

The Music Instrumentation- textures blending � instruments chosen more for the way they blend with the other instruments to produce different textures rather than using a standard classical orchestra � hence no Trumpets and Violas (no offence intended!)

The music starts with just solo piano being very free; dancing on the top of harmonies the other instruments are implying. In a way the piano is the main feature of the piece but the harmonies and it�s direction are dictated by the other parts.

This is an introduction to a larger work, or works which will explore each and every theme, melody rhythmic pattern to make either one large orchestral score or a few smaller �Theme of Variations�. I haven�t quite decided as yet.

The Playback

I composed this score with the GPO Sibelius Edition sounds so the groupings of instruments and textures created are from the blending of 2 or more Kontakt samples i.e. bar 19 where the Horn, Cello and Violin are playing in unison to provide a soft, yet brassy sound.

There are many MIDI controllers hidden to give more precise direction to the playback. These include Controller 7 to bring the volume right down for the accented notes in the Cello bars 9 and 17. As the Reverb was being kept up by Kontakt at those points I had to decrease that as well with controller 23.

The French Horn�s eerie call in the last few bars is made by taking the volume right down, but as it�s the Kontakt Player the amount of reverb sounds the same, giving the impression that the Horn is off-stage. This may only be heard in the MP3 rather than the Scorch score.
