Nameless Elegy
Nameless Elegy is a long piece, and the way to a finished piece was also very long. Partly, because much of the time I was working as a "off-time/free hours" composer, (which is true for many of my compositions...), partly because there has been periods where I was searching for events to come, and was unable to find solutions. Anyway, it is now, after more than 5 years, finished. Form is quite simple, A B A B, but the A and B episodes resemble each other mostly in terms of mood, not in terms of thematic resemblance. The first A part is slow, mostly synths, the second A part is slow with a sequence of guitar solos. B1 is a breakdown, or collapse episode with various meters (4/4, 7/8, 5/8 and 2/4 or 4/8 as you please. B2 is one meter (4/4) but with various underlying rhythmic accents, and the breakdown is more violent, leading towards the very end of the piece. This is not easy listening, there are lots of dynamic difference, and the bass goes right down to the basement, sometimes also during loud episodes. It is mixed for high-end stereo equipment, or top-level headphones, watch the volume setting at the start, it starts quietly, but later on...
