"Finding Movement"

Instruments: Koto, String Ensemble

Feel: Calming, Uplifting

The koto in this piece follows a steady, plodding beat, while the orchestral strings provide a drone-like background. At 0:33 the strings crescendo to follow the melody of the koto, but at 1:18 the tempo slows and the strings fade away, only to return to highlight the final chord. With the even rhythm and the sharply accentuated plucks of the koto, this is best used as an introduction to a short film or game, or the resolution to a conflict surrounding family or challenges to tradition.

"The Parting"

Instruments: Oboe, Flute, Strings, Trombones, Horn, Tuba

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Somber, Uplifting

I wrote this one December 27th, 2009 mainly for fun. It is a sweeping quiet piece until the past bit where is opens up a bit. At 2:06, there is an oddly supported line with a 2+ octave gap between the melody and the supporting bass. At 2:28, the gap is filled triumphantly... It ends with a hollow dominant in 5 octaves, followed by a lush resolution.

"New Friendly"

Instruments: Synths, Choir

Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving, Uplifting

The piece starts out nice, and then becomes a modulating monster about a minute in. It resolves to the initial key, and continues on. Lots of building! Very round-sounding.
