music is life, music is breath, music is us

New Song:”Energy”

Hey everyone,

So, I’ve been busy lately. Turns out being a 4th year college student is insane, who would’ve thought? Anyways, one thing I have done is complete an extended-form composition for one of my classes. I based it off of some of the paintings of modern-day artist Renee Amitai, and it is called Energy. Check it out and see what you think, it’ll be the first post you see.  https://www.facebook.com/DerekKortepeter

Peace to you,

  3. Thanks for the link to Energy. Sounds quite mature. What was the inspiration for it? What were you trying to accomplish?

  4. Hey Kurt,

    Well, I wanted to take my sound for composition to a more complex level, namely in the way I layer instruments. I also wanted to have certain rhythmic passages that were difficult, but fit as an accompanying portion to choral harmony/melody. This is also the first piece I ever have written that utilizes pizzicato in a prominent way. Aside from the technical aspects, I really wanted to write something that flowed, that was like an force or energy. This is an essential element to extended form compositions.
