Emotional and Modern Classical Music
Resolve Around the Sun
Theade is a producer and composer of Emotional and Modern Classical music made for film and picture.
With one extra beat in the final bar of each phrase, Theade’s rhythmically fascinating “In Brevity,” holds listeners’ attention from start to finish. The piano introduction of this piece evokes memories of Ben Folds’ quintessential pop piano sound and even some of his pleasant harmonies, but here, Theade expands upon this widely popular sound and creates something new. In terms of the passage of time, this cyclical piece draws a wide circle, taking a single voice, expanding upon it, and ending right back at the beginning with that same intimate piano solo.
“In Brevity” has an ambient pop-feel that makes it appropriate for a wide variety of settings including soundtracks of all kinds. Time passes easily while listening to this work, and its steadiness creates a sense of flexibility. It could accompany a self-growth montage, a long-awaited reconnection, or a moment of reconciliation. The incorporation of the complex snare pattern prepares the listeners for the entrance of the central modern beat. This beat, covering a full range of pitches from low kick drum patterns to high-pitched auxiliary percussion accents, provides momentum and fills the piece with a sense of optimism. This modern work evokes a sense of confidence, hopefulness, and heart-expansion.
The ambient soundscape of “Sea.de” begins from a far away place, with a bubbling pulse, coming closer and closer. This experimental, post classical work, includes both electronic and acoustic sounds, giving it a futuristic vibe. Theade expertly creates a classical soundtrack that weaves and merges both the synthetic and natural. The glitch sounds, that are like the rustling sounds of mother nature, combine with electronic beats that resonate like a heartbeat. As the music grows and rises, the sound of the piano trickles in with a minimalistic melody.
The piano gives the music a human touch and hypnotises the listener with sad, mysterious, but also hopeful harmonies. The circular harmonies expand in intensity, always yearning forward. It feels like we are transported into a spiralling headspace, thinking back on our memories of the past, while moving ahead towards the future. The music suddenly arrives and finds its place. It is like finding a sense of belonging and comfort. What is left is an atmospheric background and the warm, affectionate sounds of the solo piano. In this new place, there is a feeling of deep fondness and reminiscence. The piece culminates and comes together to tie the past, present, and future.
