Stock Music track: Waltz For One
Solo piano music. Minor key waltz with some tension in the harmony. Strong recurring melody with enough variation to keep it interesting. Think a walk alone at night reflecting on lost love or life’s mistakes. Very simple construction and performance. Suitable as music for scenes with and without dialogue. Light build in intensity with a clear denouement. Possibility of hanging or resolved ending. Good music for drama, romance, love story, TV, film, historical.
