Unwilling Hero

Another theme idea for a the list of character archetypes that I found. This time it's the Unwilling Hero. It's another self evident one but I'll explain my thought process for it. I figured that someone unwilling would probably have a darker and softer tone to their personality than the willing hero would. That's why I chose to use a piano and a minor key.

Willing Hero

I found a list of character archetypes that I'm going to be using for awhile to base some motifs off of. The first one on the list is the Willing Hero. It's pretty self-evident what it means so here is a short interpretation of a theme for a character of this archetype.

Here is the site that I will be finding the archetypes:

Still Writing

I don't have a recording for the stuff that I'm working on but I am still writing. I have an initial idea for where I want but now I'm just looking for a direction to take it. I'll keep this updated as I work on it. I might continue some small stuff on the side or give snippets of the one I'm working on now.

High Seas!

Whenever I want to do a piece inspired by sailing or pirates I always fall back on the same or similar rhythms and usually the Dorian mode. I would probably use the same orchestration too, but I decided to leave it with piano. Can you let me know whether I got the rollicking feel I was going for?

I hate to use the word "rollicking" but I can't think of anything else for it.

I'm back from almost a week off of this site. I didn't intend to not post on it, I just got frustrated after not liking any of the things that I had posted a couple of days before it happened. This is much better than those, in my opinion, although I feel it lacks direction sometimes. Still I hope you enjoy it.

11:11! Wish!

This is another old one. Like a lot of those ones I feel like its an intro into something longer.

I really had no idea at all where to go with this one. No initial harmonic or melodic idea. It literally started with random notes. Usually when that happens it becomes more rhythmic than anything else, which this one is.
