July 2023 competition
Music: Rex Potam
TerraCanyon, David Frasheski
For this music, I used an old slightly worn piano (Pianoteq,
D. Schoffstoss) and a Melodica bought for the occasion.
Two instruments: my sturdy mount and me… Which do you think is which?
The melody seed is a variation of a well-known western movie tune.
The first part is in Am, the last part is in Em — dominant for the
openness, but kept minor for the ambiance: end of day, end of an
adventure, what comes next?
The piece finishes on a last twist: I could have used a Picardy third,
but also added the 7th for an extra openness effect. My mount and I
are about to run into the next adventure…
