I made this orchestration imagining how a refuge place would be. This reflection came after I read a poem who speaks about this paradise idea and the life after death, according to the Christianity. The idea was to depict the beginning, the end and what happens after it. “Paradisum” means paradise in latin and, for me, this song shows all the trajectory to this place.
The orchestration is based on a camara orchestra, with a small string suit composed of violin, violas, cellos and double bass. In the woodwind suit there’s a clarinet and a pair of french horns, alternating between melodic, harmonics and sound effects moments. Besides those instruments, there’s a percussion suit, with melodic instruments as the timpani, glockenspiel and harp. These are often the protagonists during various parts of the music. Still at the percussion suit, there’s a snare, bass drum, triangle, cymbals and a marke tree completing the rhythm part of the composition.
This composition itself doesn't have a melody defined, although there’s a constant repetition of elements already presented. The song is based in orchestral textures, something like the impressionist song made in the beginning of the 20th century.
