Scoring Exercise Day 1 "Resplendent Host"
I've begun a new series of scoring exercises. I'll be writing pieces of music inspired by still and moving images as a means to stimulate creative gears in my brain. Partially an exercise in the discipline of writing based on an existing idea, partially an enjoyable thing I want to do. Day 1 is a piece inspired by the incredible work of Dáire Lynch. This painting is called "Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light" and was inspired by the Earth song of the same name. Now that his painting has inspired a piece of music, the circle is complete. Of course, a circle has infinite points, so should someone create something inspired by this piece, it could continue...
Dáire is a very prolific and talented artist and you can see a lot more of his work here:
Thanks for listening.
