Jutze 52 #42 – Choral Fragment

This fragment was written and recorded late in the evening of 29th September in a hotel room in Bremen. I was experimenting with the choir voices of my new recording software, using the laptop keyboard as the piano keyboard. Given the slow tempo of the music the inaccuracies of the playing didn’t really matter. I avoided a clear time signature as best as I could, anyway. After maybe a dozen run-throughs I had the chord structure and melody. I altered a few MIDI notes afterwards and double-tracked the whole thing with different voices to give it more width. I could have achieved a smoother ending by speeding up the whole song. But it’s already as fast as I found it still bearable. I was aiming for a majestic anthem, after all.
