Music – Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude

"Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude"

After a long time, I thought it was time to release three new musical compositions. Composed during 2012, using Cubase 6.5, some hardware synths, and a lot of software synths and plugins as well as a couple of samples, these compositions sound much more mature than my earlier compositions. And more serious. These three pieces together form are a kind of complete listening experience, though they are separate electronic musical compositions.  

First Movement

Tonal Assembly - Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude

This first movement is the longest, lasting almost 12 minutes. I was inspired by the Voyager, who is currently leaving the solar system, into the unknown expanses of the universe. It has a kind of "space opera" feel to it.

Second Movement

Tonal Assembly - Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude

This second movement, of about 6 minutes, is an elaboration of a melancholic melody I found on a Sunday afternoon.

Third Movement

Tonal Assembly - Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude

This piece was supposed to be the second part of the First Movement (which was originally named "Voyager"). However, while working on this song, it became a composition on its own, distinct from the First Movement, though again sonically related, and therefore the Third Movement of these Three Pieces for Sonic Solitude. It's about 9 minutes long.
