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! (2:00)
