Writing Music: A Flat20:32
Ever since I first discovered Lindsey Stirling and Taylor Davis on YouTube, I’ve been in love with violin music. It’s such a versatile instrument, able to play both classical and contemporary music beautifully. Many of my favourite pieces of music to write to are played on the violin. So it’s only natural that today’s writing music is another amazing violin piece, A Flat. This time it’s from a musician I’ve only just discovered, violinist Black Violin.
To me, A Flat has an edgy, urban feel to it. There’s an undercurrent of tension right through the piece, especially evident through the repeating themes of scurrying notes. This piece makes me think of darkened city streets with crackling tension in the air as if something big is brewing in the background. This piece would be good for city scenes set in the darker part of town, or possibly even a dystopian story.
