This is a work in progress…
Today’s work is in support of the scene when the Donner’s are told that they basically have to hack their own path through the Wasatch Mountains. The Hastings Cutoff is bogus, and they are told to send someone ahead for further instructions.
The music is more like space lounge music, with little resemblance to the scene of the movie. Oh well. It’s based on the utonality to the 15 limit, modulating to new keys by steps of the otonality. In the chart at the right (click it to enlarge), the utonality goes up and to the left, the otonality up and to the right.
We start in the bottom row C Ab F D+ B- Gb E- D-, then move up to E, then G, then Bb.
The piece is scored for Alto Flute, Vibraphone, Finger Piano, Tuba, French Horns, Trombones, dry spring percussion, and some other percussion samples. Enjoy the utonalicious triademonium.
