"Moving Forward Triumphant" from the album "Variations"

Moving Forward Triumphant


Hi Everyone!


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Moving Forward Triumphant" from the "Variations" album.  There was a project in school I did which was to put music to film.  It was a patriotic film with a patriotic theme.  I composed it as a theme for this movie.  I played along with the movie with trying different scenes to get a feel for it.  The film project was only for about 10 minutes to get the credit.  My instructor at the time said the music fit the scenario very well and wanted to use my project for other students as an example of how to get the feel of the music to fit the film.  I was glad it came out well.  The original film version was mostly played with a heavy brass section in it.  At the same time while doing this project, I wrote a second version that had more piano and strings that eventually went into the sketchbook of ideas.  The film originally used the version that had more of the brass and drum section, while the other version had more piano and string sections in it.  The brass section fit the film.  The piano version by itself was more pleasing to listen to without having the driving brass section.  In contrast to these I decided not to put both versions on the album.  To me this would have been too redundant.  Instead  I re-wrote it in a way combining the two pieces for the "Variations" album.  The project went well and was a good experience having yet another angle of writing for picture or film.
