Experiments In Compsition - Midight Sun
Experiments In Compsition - Midight SunTaking inspiration from the beautiful satellite imagery from NASA, this is the first in a series of explorations into different elements of composition. I plan to use this series to explore different compositional approaches, arrangement techniques and song forms, taking inspiration from visuals, landscapes and sounds that I have come across. The pieces in this series will vary from sketches to more fleshed out arrangements, functioning as both a repository for ideas and a portfolio. Composition: Dustin JW Visualiser: Genevieve Kaiser
