Opus No. 4 (Symphonism)

Symphonism (Opus No. 04)

 

Released in June 1, 2007, this collection of works derives inspiration from symphonic music, the spectrum of which covers sonorities from the Romantic Era, 20th-century avant garde, and contemporary progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion.

A. The Virgin’s Jewel, a suite inspired by the Nick Joaquin short story “The Legend of the Virgin’s Jewel”. I’m currently looking for people who can clean up the score for this (I wrote the score when I was still somewhat of an idiot and so it was very messy).

1. The Virgin’s Jewel 1st Movement “The Goatherd’s Offering”

2. The Virgin’s Jewel 2nd Movement “Brother Fernando and the Virgin”

3. The Virgin’s Jewel 3rd Movement “The Empty Bowl and the Serpent”

4. The Virgin’s Jewel 4th Movement “A Midnight Duel”

5. The Virgin’s Jewel 5th Movement “Finale”

B. The “Symphonies of Whim” are experiments using stochastic composition methods with the aid of a software called “FractMus” by Gustavo Diaz-Jerez.

Sterilium_Opus_No_01-Front-Cover

This is the first album I recorded using equipment that could easily be considered meager by today’s standards. The entire album was recorded using a Korg X5, my old Strat, a plywood acoustic guitar, a Squier P-Bass, a cheap microphone, and a Pentium III PC equipped with Cakewalk Sonar Plasma, Sibelius 4, audio-to-MIDI conversion software, and a number of VST and DX softsynths.

1. Victory Fanfare

2. The Philosopher

3. Every Time You Smile (The Dad Song)

4. A Wonderful Sight

5. Family Portrait

“Answers” Suite

6. Answers I: Overture

8. Answers III: Meaning

9. Answers IV: Faith

10. Answers V: Comfort to My Soul

11. Answers VI: The Truth Does Stand

12. Answers VII: You Are True
