This week, the composers take inspiration from Spooky Season! Listen in for some haunting and enchanting tunes!
It’s spooky season! Musically, to create that spooky feel, I chose low, slow notes in a minor key. Also, I used three trombones because a few weeks ago, I wrote a piece with two trombones, and I just thought that there weren’t enough trombones. I’m excited for Halloween because I think dressing up in different clothes will be a welcome change, even if we don’t get to go trick-or-treating.
"Hauntéd" is a piece intended for an SATB choir although the parts are produced with a piano in the recording. I wanted to honor spooky season with a haunting piece, filled with discordant notes and a scary repeated melody :)
How spooky ! How very much minor ! A possible sampler of more fright and fear to come ? Rock ? Paper, scissors? Will wonders never cease ? Happy Halloween !
