So this is the beginning of a new project, music for a theatre piece in Sweden. The work centres around the second movement of the Appassionata piano sonata by Beethoven. And, naturally, I’m doing it on looped electric violin!
This first track is simply a sketch to show how the theme is chopped up into 8 separate loops. The play consists of disparate letters from soldiers at the Battle of Stalingrad in WW2, and the patchwork nature of the chopped-up lines mirrors this. The final letter mentions the Appassionata, and only then will we start to hear the full theme. There will be heavy FX on these lines, and it will never actually be heard in the form it is here. But, as I said, this is simply a sketch to show how the lines fit together.
