Presentation Abstract

This project is an original music composition for symphony orchestra. “Aurora – Suite for Orchestra” is a musical depiction of a fantasy world as seen through the eyes of a child. “Homeward Bound” is the last of eight movements of this suite and is spiritually summative of the suite as a whole. It is a cumulative work representing my work with music composition, harmony, orchestration, and formal designs. Additionally, it demonstrates my use of modern music technology, in this case creating a virtual simulation of a live orchestra—one which the average listener may find indistinguishable from an actual recording of a live orchestra. Since there is not enough time to present the entire suite, I will briefly explain the nature of the piece, the simulation of the live orchestra, and then play the piece.
