About the music
The Wait is a classical style piece of music that reflects waiting and anticipation. It was written out of insomnia and the constant incapacity to sleep. It’s something I have personally struggled with throughout my life, and I admit a lot of my ideas flow from those hours fighting with it. The Wait is directly related to it, born of it. It’s that anxious waiting for sleep to come, the time ticking away, the realization that time is passing and the possible sleep time lessens. Suddenly, you feel it, but it disappears once again, and the anxiousness returns.
The different orchestral elements attempt to reflect that, with the violin’s pizzicato ticking away, as other elements creep in, and the mind races in the darkness. It features violins, cello, horns, and a rainstick to tell the story of that struggle with insomnia. For me it expresses that story. For you, it might express something different. It might inspire one of my films or stories, or one of yours.
- The music is 3 minutes and 25 seconds (3:25).
About the Score
Though it was written with larger violin groups in mind or small orchestras, keeping it in a way quite simple, it can be played with 3 violins, a cello, a horn, and a rainstick. The difficulty and challenge is in the amount of pizzicato, and how fast it needs to be played at times, but at the same time, that's where the fun lies. I can imagine it can work quite nicely with a school orchestra or any small ensemble, even if some might need to make some minor adjustments to how it's played. It'll be fun to hear how others interpret it.
