Song. Lied. I'm composing.
What I'm presenting here is:
1) introduction on piano - it's ment to express disturbed and heroic badassness, combination of beethovenian piano style with something a'la theme from first movement of Chopin's 2nd Piano Sonata. It opens the song and I think it will do for coda as well, with last, high, long note from the singer over it.
2) first melodic motive (trombone = singer (tenor/baritone)) - the words that it's made for are two first stanzas from the poem.
About the poem:
It's poem written by Juliusz Słowacki - glory to him:
XIXth century dude. The poem is entitled "The Clouds" (Chmury), kind of "tra la la, me great artist and human stand above all those little bitches, common creatures, they will be buried in miserable ground, my way leads through the divine clouds, kiss my *** basterds". I totally identify myself with this massage and therefore I'm writing the song. I know that my abstract of poem doesn't give you full image of what's going on but music will tell you all the rest. Maybe I will seek out and attach full translation of the poem if there will be some interest in this thread as the work will progress.
