More Modes

Once again I was messing around with modes. This time I chose mixolydian. The scale is really close to the major scale stepwise. But with a few steps from the minor scale. To aid this sound I added chords with a good mixture of major and minor intervals.

A quick one since its another day that I've been out of the house a lot. There are a couple of things that I like about this that I may deal with later.

And by a couple I mean like two measures.

Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th of July!

This piece is something that I've done earlier this year. I wanted to do something original today, but everything I wrote down was just crap. Crap that I'm sure that would sound better with more time but oh well. At least I have some ideas for other times though.

Something Different - Nabari no Ou

Slight segue from the usual, but just finished watching an anime series called Nabari no Ou. Decided to talk about the score a little. The composer for the series was Michiru Ōshima who has composed music for one of my favorite video games of all time, Ico. Just like in Ico, the music is very minimal and simple. Some of my most favored scores seem to be like that. I've been listening to the original soundtrack and each piece, especially the main theme, seem to encompass the tone of the entire show completely. This is a great achievement and something that I'm going to strive to do on every score that I work on.
