A piece for a soundtrack. Although the woodwind section in the beginning was originally meant to sound somber and dignified, because of the excessive counterpoint, I was making very liberal use of accidentals, and without the erudite theoretical training, it might sound and read like ear-gouging mistakes to some. But it fits the character it is describing: goofy, "OFF-KEY!" The ending was written to unmistakably create the somber mood, which it succeeded in. Even the excessive counterpoint steers clear in all cases of accidentals. While the beginning of the piece is fitted in a description of this unique goofball of a girl- what she grew to be- the ending is fitted into her birth, which represents infinite possibilities. There was a high chance that she would end up lovable in all her forms to her old man, and with that realization of his came love, and a somber and dignified sense of responsibility, to make sure she would not turn into something he would regret. While I could obviously not fit all the emotions he must have been feeling in his tears into this little piece without greatly elongating it past a reprise of the theme, excess of one mood could do the same... and while "sad" might not be the best choice for my ideas, so it is.
Two more notes: skip past the section with suspended cymbals; it will not work right in this file. Lastly, the ending is meant as a segue into another piece.
