I wanted to try something a bit more ambitious for the big finish, so I worked on these three together. I’ve tried to capture to flow of the music – Sibelius’ symphonies flow together more than any other composer I know – in fact by the seventh he’d abandoned the movement altogether. This one also has a lovely structure with a central melody that slowly emerges in the first, dominates the second and is consumed by the third, and I thought that would link the three pieces together (it’s the yellow bit).
1: Allegro moderato (in C major)
2 : Andantino con moto, quasi allegretto (in G-sharp minor)
3: Moderato – Allegro ma non tanto (in C major)
All three movements together
Those of you who have been watching the 28 Songs Later project unfold (thanks – the response has been great, especially over on Facebook!) may notice a pause for the next couple of days. This is because I have A Plan for the final three pieces, which may or may not work out… If it does, hopefully you’ll see why on the 28th. If it doesn’t, well at least we gave it a chance…
Song Twenty-three : Aerodynamic (Daft Punk)
Decided to put black gesso on a couple of boards, see how that turned out. I think this one worked OK.
Song Twenty-one : Violet Hill (Coldplay)
A request. This one wasn’t massively successful. There were a lot of water effects which didn’t dry terribly well unfortunately – it looked better wet. Also I promised I wouldn’t use purple and failed 😉
Song Twenty – Us and Them (Pink Floyd)
Song Eighteen : Within Without You (The Beatles)
This one got a bit lost and went meh. But the thing with 28 Drawings Later is that you post it anyway, so people get to see the off days.
