“Violena” — Composed and Arranged by Amylian.
I still remember the days when I was composing this piece. I wanted to capture a somber tone blended with a dark atmosphere that can sting the hearts. This piece went so many phases and changes and I think I am proud of the latest one, which I am presenting now.
However, the title “Violena” is hard to describe. It’s derived from “violin” and as for the “na”, it’s just my way of making it sound like a female. In truth, I wrote this piece accompanied by female soprano, but since I am only working on a simple computer and programs, I couldn’t include it. I am a man who loves female voices and I consider them to be heavenly and bringer of happiness or sadness. Their voice is like a world in its own, just waiting to be unleashed. At the end, I decided to include the organs to set the dark mood.
This is the first 4 bars. Of course in the latest version, it’s different because of all the arrangement and mixing that’s been done! You can listen to the piece below on Soundcloud. Remember, I am just composing music for fun and I am no professional whatsoever.
