Neo-Classical Piece Inspired by Vivaldi

May 10th, 2019 by

So I was trying to come up with a piece for my recent film, The Super Rocket and was inspired by Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” and wrote this song:

I’m pretty sure this song uses only my own material in the first part and something note for note what Vivaldi wrote as the second part (8 + 8 measures). I listened to all of “Four Seasons” to see if I could spot what had inspired me so I don’t think the first half is copied subconsciously (which is something that happens). Tell me if you think you can spot it.

Also, I’ve categorized this piece as “Neo Classical” but that’s just a word of my own making and may not be the best descriptor.

By the way, if you haven’t seen The Super Rocket (produced by my Family, some friends, and I) you can watch it below. And feel free to share with as many people as possible! Also, you can leave a comment on YouTube to tell me what you think!

I’m currently working on a new project which is a about a programmer who wants to become a computer hacker. Hopefully this one turns out. You can pray that God would give me wisdom in writing this screenplay and that it would turn into something that would please Him.

    I think the music is beautiful! Very relaxing. I don’t know anything about music. Your mom is a good actress, Her voice was clear and strong, your dad… eah, not so much! It was fun to see the rocket launch! Overall, good job! I really did like your composition.
