The Abandoned Funhouse  

Brian Balmages
Grade 0.5

Written for the true beginner, this piece takes the listener on an eerie tour that can best be described as an unsettling experience with a touch of curiosity and anxiousness. Piano and optional celesta (playable on a keyboard) create a haunting background reminiscent of a film score. Instruments move mostly by stepwise motion and all string crossings involve an open string. No eighth notes are used, and many instruments use only 5 or 6 notes (while violin 1 uses a one octave D Major scale). Highly playable and extremely engaging!
