iNventune

Started out as harmony exercise in the style of JS Bach but “open a box of butterflies and they fly” (old Japanese saying) ..really a bunch of dysfunctional notes looking for a home key

Piano and Orchestra Fragment

Computer generated strings are a bit ropey 😦

Purists may detect an element of Shostakovitch here .. I can’t think of anyone better to emulate, is my riposte :D)
More to the point am getting my head round organising the notation and using the sustained string element to create a texture of sound for a closing cadence.
