A new orchestral piece coming up
Dedicated to the oceans, lakes, rivers - the waters, the origin of all life on this beautiful earth
And to its inhabitants, whales, frogs, hippo's, seagulls and more
I made a soundscape of those sounds, now adding Symphony Orchestra
Listen to a few minutes of work-in-progress (scroll down)
There are frogs and flutes and flamingos, humpbacks and harps and hippo's and horns, crickets and clarinets and lots of other beautiful "instruments and singers" here. Natural sounds, treated as instruments, and the symphony orchestra, mixing in a new way in this piece...
Listen some? Scroll down...
... sometimes the nature sounds dominate, then the symphony orchestra does. Sometimes in balance, weaved in with each other.
Like a love meeting... then the one, then the other... and both want to hear and to comfort and to stimulate the other.
Or shapeshifting... first it's a sealion, then it's a saxophone... then an ocean, the an oboe... then an orca but yet later an orchestra...
