Moods and Modes - my Hive introduction

in #palnet6 months ago


I just realized I never properly presented myself to the Hive community... I am an Italian music lover who, during a forced short stop caused by an illness, went back composing music after a 25 years long hiatus.

This happened in 2018, and took the form of a still ongoing project called "Moods and Modes": a collection of short instrumental pieces of diverse musical genres.
Every piece is marked by a different "Mood" and it explores a different "Mode", being built using a different musical scale.

I presented the first six pieces here on Hive with six posts:

  1. For the Joy, a happy folk piece in F# major pentatonic
  2. Sail Away, a melancholic piece for flute and cello in A# minor pentatonic
  3. Geronimo, a rock piece in A# blues scale
  4. Marilyn, a swing track in A# blues scale
  5. Sunrise on Mars, an alien salute to the sun in C major pentascale
  6. Autumn Sunset, a chill latin jazz track in A minor pentascale

By the way, this first six pieces are collected in an EP, fancifully named "Moods and Modes vol. I", that you can download for free from Bandcamp:

Thanks for reading and, if you like, stay tuned for more insights on this musical exploration project!
