industrial 1940 americana
daylight ... sunrise ... punch clock and wheaties for breakfast. Or not ... what a nice quirkly beauty. I do love the scale contrast and the clock like rythem plays well against the movement of the instruments. Enjoyed ... very original!

Quite an interesting piece.....
captivating, with dissonant notes and unusual rhythm.....I imagine the strings and brass as the street sounds, cars, traffic etc. I like it!

Thanks Enrique,
Your own beautiful music is quite often joyful and uplifting I'm so glad that you found some pleasure in a darker sometime dissonant work.
Best,
Charlie

Different time period...
...but the sliding in and out of dissonance brings to mind a west coast version "West Side Story".

There's a generous portion of Copland's hand in yours, sweeping the abandoned lots of a desolate section of the city...

Nice stuff, there, Charlie...cool theme.

Aaron and Lenny...
Two guys whose music always inspires me.
A west coast version "West Side Story"? That's cool!
Thanks Bob for your always keen insights.

Both sides now, simultaneously!
Nice pizz ostinato you have going there... when the bowed strings come in, it seems bitonal. Is it? Then the tonalities converge, then diverge again. Very cool. I like the way you handle dissonance here. Very nicely done. It has an interesting feeling of being both happy/jolly (which comes from the pizz. ostinato) and intense at the same time.

Great work here, as usual Charlie.

Thanks Clark,
Yes this does slide into bitonality. It's not always planned but when I find myself in unusual sonic landscapes I try not to panic, I usually put on some hiking boots, get out the repellant and try to enjoy the trip.
And when I'm really lost I go to your very cool Composition Blog and try to figure out where the heck I am.
Best,
Charlie

I'm with Bob
here - reminded me of 'West Side Story' too. Some of my all time favourite music, but then it lifted into something very original - I get Eastern influences amongst many other images. Very creatively different and a lovely listen. The production also sounds faultless to me.
Cheers
Len

Thanks Len,
Bernstein wrote some great music for that play and if you haven't already, check out his music for "On the Waterfront".
A true urban classic.
Take Care,
Charlie

The- Im creating but don't know or even care if anyone cares, often brings out the coolest stuff.
Thanks Tim.

Unusual tonalities
as others have mentioned. The pizz. strings hammering away under the bowed strings and winds are relentless, yet the legato treatment over the top has a very captivating flow. The bitonal treatment is a bit edgy, and would (will) be great leading up to the climactic scene of a movie.

I love...
finding that musical edge and dancing around it.
Thanks for the listen and some interesting thoughts Kristyjo.
Best,
Charlie
