Unshackled

Unshackled

 

This music is designed to evoke a sense of inner liberation. I wrote this to represent overcoming insurmountable odds, striving for freedom through strength of character, or merely chasing your dreams and never giving up. The piece is fairly short and builds on a strong rhythmic drum and clap beat to represent the constant thrum of life and unrelenting force of nature. The music builds steadily using orchestration to evolve rather than variation of themes. I used multiple guitar and mandolin tracks to create the strong chord pulse. Midway through the piece I bring in a bluegrass tinged mandolin solo representing the point where struggles become secondary to the joy of life; the flurry of notes is the release to the previous tension.
