I wanted to do something light and pretty with some unexpected harmonic twists. The use of chromatically related chords took me pretty far away from my key center, but I was able to get back home using a neopolitan pre-dominant. I cheated it a little as it wasn’t quite set up properly, but I sort of like the dissonance it creates. I titled this “Duo” as I’m working on a fully orchestrated version of this piece as well.
This feels nostalgic, music box-y, waltz-y (without being in 3), and reminds me of heavy snow by moonlight.
I’ve provided separate intro/loop files for ease of editing. If you would like to use this royalty free loop, please message me.
