Album:America - Canon in G minor

California / June 29, 2012 / by Chris

Lately, the stuff I've been writing has been rather contemporary sounding. I don't have a huge problem with that, except that one of my goals for Album:America and the year in general was to write things in a variety of styles. So this week we go far away from contemporary music and get old fashioned with a Baroque string trio. For you music geeks or lovers of random trivia, it's written as an accompanied canon - that is, two voices play the same thing a measure apart, while a bass line rounds out the sound. Even if you think you don't like classical music, give it a chance - this one is pretty short, and who knows? Maybe you'll discover you like it.
