Synthetic Zen (Hawke) Zenthetic String Ensemble 1 (remix 20031104) (Harmony Asst, Gold mix)
Originally written November 17th, 2001 using Myriad Software's Harmony Assistant. This version is remixed with the "Gold Sound Base" version 1 in 2003. This is a "Bach-like" string ensemble piece intended for Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, and Mandolin. There is a little bit of "Jazz-like 'improvisation'" in that I try to give each instrument a little of time as the "lead". Sadly, somewhere during my move from Idaho to Washington, I somehow lost most of the score I wrote, and only found a partial file. After taking three quarters of music theory at EWU in 20011-2012, for the last quarter, I am going to attempt a complete rewrite of the piece trying to apply all that I learned, while still following the original theme and see if I can make it a better and more interesting piece. We'll see how that goes. Enjoy!
