Yet another “new release” post? Not at all. This is really special and if you’re into orchestral, melodic, romantic filmmusic, you should definitely give this a listen.
Particularly because Goldfall has been my first (and hopefully not my last) collaboration with the talented viola/violin player Natalia Wierzbicka a.k.a. Nat Willow. As you know I’m specializing in sample-based composition and always looking for new ways to make them even more convincing and “human”. I’m proud to say that Nat’s performances elevate “Goldfall” to a new level of beauty and emotion.
There’s little to add, apart from a few links that you might enjoy:
- Here’s a summary of the story on which the composition is based upon. Read about a story of a miracle in the midst of winter, pilgrims, the vanity of a harp player and a sacrilege crime that is to be solved.
- Fun fact: Though I did some re-arranging and re-orchestrating, the composition is pretty much as it was in 1998 when I originally wrote it and produced it with a synthesizer. I was about half the age that I’m now, so it might not be my most mature composition, but certainly one full of heart.
- For those who follow me closely enough to know of this page: You can find the music also in the Program Music section! Enjoy!
Lastly, here’s the Goldfall “trailer video” containing footage from Natalia and myself:
