That’s how the piece should feel. A sense of victory should kickstart the first movement before the revelation of King Valor’s master plan darkens the mood.
I added more notes and changed the key of this piece into something different.
I messed around with more melodic sequences from my cello while mixing the other elements much like how my mitochondrial DNA mixed elements from my Chinese-American dad and my mom from the Dominican Republic.
The blending of these tonal colors began to shape up into something I’d want to listen to.
But would others listen to it?
