Written for the Seattle Rock Orchestra, 'ffiinniiss' derives its inspiration from classic rock. My favorite part of these songs are the final notes, where whammy bars detune strings and drummers let loose to explore new timbres. 'ffiinniiss' highlights the textures and tonalities of these epic rock endings with loose yet aggressive sounds for the orchestra.
Performed by the Seattle Rock Orchestra at the Chapel Performance Space, June 8, 2012.
