Orchestral Work

This page is an introduction on my independent orchestra works.
The first project I'm gonna publish has been launched under the working title "EVOLUTION". It's a work in progress inspired and partially based on my piano improvisations from the "CIVILIZATION" CD.

Check out the new enchanting yet passionate sketch for the Evolution prelude

The idea for the evolution project originally came up during the recording sessions for the CIVILIZATION CD.
Where the first piano solo CD MOMENTS had a strong Jazz attitude, the CIVILIZATION CD turned out to have a way more classical approach as to harmonization and chord progression.
While listening to the first recordings I immediately realized the great orchestration potential that lies in the colorful and lively movements of the score. So I decided to orchestrate the original musical score from the piano recordings.
Due to the constantly changing moods of the recording and the playful or rhytmically parts of the piece I can imagine the resulting orchestral work to be very suitable for a contemporary ballet performance or as a subject for a modern dance company.
The title of the project derives from the original CIVILIZATION CD. However, whereas the CIVILIZATION CD is kind of a meditation or reflection on our so called civilization in it's current state, the EVOLUTION PROJECT aims at the human evolution in general.
It shall be a colorful collection of pictures of the sometimes painful yet also funny and even strange development of the human nature, depicting ups and downs and hope and struggle.
