I've been working on a sound track for a movie that has yet to be made about the Donner Party. This work is in support of the scene when the Donner's are told that they basically have to hack their own path through the Wasatch Mountains, since their guide, Hastings, is a fraud. The shortcut they were enticed to take, the Hastings Cutoff, is bogus. They are told to send someone ahead for further instructions while the main party is to wait until they get back.
The music is more like space lounge music, with little resemblance to the scene of the movie. Oh well. It's based on the utonality to the 15 limit, modulating to new keys by steps of the otonality. In the chart here, the utonality goes up and to the left, the otonality up and to the right.
We start in the bottom row C Ab F D+ B- Gb E- D-, then move up to E, then G, then Bb.
The piece is scored for Alto Flute, Vibraphone, Finger Piano, Tuba, French Horns, Trombones, dry spring percussion, and some other percussion samples. Enjoy the utonalicious triademonium.
