News Through the Mystic Woods • Music • Composition

July 7, 2017

This summer I composed Through the Mystic Woods after reading the A Song of Fire and Ice book series by George R.R. Martin. It is inspired not only by the books, but also by the score of the TV series. In addition to orchestral sounds from the Vienna Symphonic Library, there is a synthesizer part created with an authentic Yamaha DX-7. As part of my new personal composition method, this work was created in Logic Pro instead of with notation software. The idea is to create the music in a more organic way instead of focusing on notation. I find this makes dealing with shape and space easier to conceptualize. ​
