The Hunting
Click here to listen to the Hunting

The Hunting is a musical composition that was written to try and draw a picture. The beginning of the piece is a king going out on the hunt. On the repeat the king finds out that he is not the one doing the hunting, but instead the hunted. The king barely gets out of the forest alive.

After the first double bar the king is back at the castle and is attending his daughter's wedding, a happy time. As the middle section ends the king gets sick and dies.

The last part of the song is to show that life goes on after the death of someone. The forest moves on.
