I wrote this today just to experiment with a chord progression I created to see how it sounded. I used the RENDEVUE.STY with the tempo set to 85. It was sent as wave files to my Cakewalk DAW. I created the melodic line in Finale and transported the melody midi to Cakewalk and added it to the BiaB backup band. Use it for your quiet times.

Hi Wrayer. I would say that your experiment worked.
Think would go well as a movie score.
Well done. Rob4580

Thanks Rob4580 for the comment. When they start making movies again, I'll think about it...;-)

Kudos to you for experimenting with chord progressions! I find that they don’t always work out, but often times you can get the most interesting results out of experimenting like this, as you clearly have.

Thanks, it was a fun project.

I have gone even further and taken this BiaB project and orchestrated it for a live orchestra. If I could I would post it here for all to hear.

Best wishes and stay safe,
Bill

An interesting and eclectic choice of chord progressions.

Experimentation like this can often be rewarding.

Thanks All! This was little piece was just my way of note taking for a complete orchestral version. Since the orchestral version's only connection to BiaB is the fact I used the BiaB study to give me an idea of how it would sound. The orchestral version uses no BiaB instrumentation, so I have not uploaded it to this board. I called the orchestral version: The Dream of Freedom.

For those that would like to hear how I used my BiaB experiment called "Unknown Factors" to create an orchestral piece. You can go here to hear the orchestral development of Unknown Factors. I entitled the piece "The Dream of Freedom"

Enjoy!

William, I find that experimenting with chord progressions in BiaB one of the most important things I can do with BiaB.

I'd say your experimentation is a huge success! This song is perfect for a movie.

I liked this very much.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
