Nov. 2023 Update: Interlude for String Orchestra has been revised and is now about 2 1/2 minutes longer than the video!
I had three goals in mind while writing this piece: use and develop some motives, move from darkness to light, and make the ending beautiful. There are a few empty measures where I wanted the music to have time to breathe. Overall playing time seems to be about 6:44.
I used some poly-tonality here and there, but there are also pop music influences to help ease the tension! Please contact me if you would like to perform this piece. Thanks for listening!
