I have officially written a Celtic piece. I am very excited to show it to you!
My process of writing this piece: I first came up with a 16-bar melody, which you hear at the beginning of the piece twice. I wanted it to sound like a typical (yet catchy) jig. The flute at the beginning is me playing my flute (which has a wooden head joint). Instead of using a typical Celtic ensemble (like harp, flute, dulcimer, etc.) I wanted to do the ensemble plus an orchestra. So, if you know the music for The Water Horse by James Newton Howard (who by the way, is my favorite film composer), then you'll know what I was aiming for. Here it is:
Celtic by Jon M.
So... let me know what you think! I'd really appreciate it. This is my first time composing a Celtic piece, so this is all new to me. I'll take all comments, critiques, and advice.
I will post my Action/Adventure piece very soon.
Thanks for listening,
P.S. Any name ideas for this song? I couldn't think of any!
