Writing Music: Part of the Pack17:58
Some pieces of music can be quite difficult to classify for Writing Music purposes. I find many pieces I love and would love to listen to while writing, but which I can’t quite piece together the mood or story of. And sometimes I stumble upon a piece of music that’s so atmospheric I instantly know exactly what sort of scene it would suit. This week’s Writing Music is just such a piece. Part of the Pack is an amazing instrumental piece from composer Adrian Von Zeigler that is just perfect for writing to.
This piece has an overwhelmingly Celtic feel to it. It’s wild and dance-like, mixed with a couple of quieter moments, and with the sound of wolves howling woven throughout. To me, this piece would suit a rowdy country dance or celebration. I especially find it reminding me of a wild faery dance, drawing poor mortals into their eternal dance party. Other than that, it could also suit an urgent or excited horse ride, especially through a dark wood at night.
What do you think this piece suits? What have you been listening to this week? Recommend some music to me!
