This is a condensed sketch of a tune I'm working on for my next CD project . THe original basis for this was to utilize pitch sets based on a MA 7 5b sshape. ( AS you can see , it quickly went further afield from there ) :)
These are the A and B sections .I'm currently working on a pretty atonal shout chorus ala 80s Bob Brookmeyer.
Great start, Phil. Very sophisticated composing. Infectious melody, with nice tension in the chords. Sounds almost like a classical piece, begging for extended development. Piano sonata or concerto, maybe. How long will it be and how's it going to be scored?
I've just finished the chart for a standard big band ( 4/4/5/3 ) and with any luck, I'm going to try to get it run down next week along qith some other new things. In addition to the A and B sections shown above, I've added a contrapuntal section
that leads to a very dissonant "shout "section that only resembles jazz by the rhythmic structures I've used. If I can figure out a way to implode some of this stuff to shetch form , I'll post it.
