"Emotion" © 2005 Nicholas Rougeux
Back when I was working to discover my current compositional technique, which is composing music completely improvisationally, I spent years writing pieces in the standard method.
I would carefully work out each element of a piano piece and practice how I wanted everything to sound. This piece was actually written out by hand on staff paper, sitting at my piano.
This piece, called esmovoir, which is a French word for emotion, was written back then. It also happens to be one of the few works that I actually decided to record back then.
I was planning to write a whole series of "esmovoir" type pieces that were all interrelated. I ended up only writing two. This is the first. But I felt that it would be nice to share this piece with you.
My intent for this piece is to try to capture a sense of pure emotion like the fractal image above. There is not a specific subject matter that inspired it, just my overall sense of the beauty of life.
I hope you enjoy it.
