A somewhat sombre orchestral arrangement of one of my solo piano pieces from 1998. It was inspired from an incident where I was taken to the hospital after an allergic reaction and then waited on a gurney for the next hour with an IV.
The piece is scored for a medium sized orchestra with a few odd doubles; it was written for what I had and could play. The electric bass and harps play an ostinato on G and all the melodies and harmonies sound over that pedal. This version went through a few drafts until this one which was mostly recorded in 2013 and 2014. All parts played by me on real instruments, except for the piano which was an electric piano (it's mixed low).
Scored for: 2 flutes, 2 clarinets, 2 recorders, harmonica, piano, 2 harps, guitar, percussion, electric bass and strings:8/6/6/5/1
