For the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a new composition entitled “Awakening”. It’s another instrumental featuring piano with orchestral accompaniment tracks, similar to “The Coronation” that I composed for Christmas a few years ago.
I’ll be performing the entire piece as our “open” this Easter Sunday at SSCC. David Yarborough and Travis Paulding have helped create a script with stunning visuals to accompany the live performance on our LED and side screens. The performance will include grand piano, the recorded orchestral tracks, and live horns and percussion.
A few friends and co-workers who watched this piece come to life encouraged me to post a little “behind the scenes” peak at how this was created. I think that most of my musician friends can appreciate what it’s like to go from a simple idea to a fully produced work. My non-musical friends find the process interesting as well, especially knowing the back story of how the piece was inspired.
I look forward to sharing the entire piece with you shortly but until then … here’s a sneak peak of how the song came about. Hope you enjoy it!
