Opus 52 World Maestro Colin ODonohoe
Opus 52 Forty Eight "Ugly's Alibi"

I was inspired for the title of this by the politics that is bringing us into the Primary season. There is so much ugliness going on, and we are the alibi. We are allowing the ugliness to exist while we gasp we read on anyway. 

The music is in 48/4 - pretty simple week for pretty simple minded ugliness.

The "Opus 52" project explained - 


In 2015 World Maestro Colin O'Donohoe is undertaking an incredibly exciting project!!
At the end of each week this year he will release here on this website a piece of music in the meter of the week. 
Example - 
After the first week of January he'll post a piece in 1. 
After the second week, a piece in 2. Perhaps cut time, perhaps 2/4 - you'll have to check back :)
After the 14th week of the year, he'll post a piece in 14. It might be 14/8 14/4, 14/16... you'll just have to keep checking in once a week to hear what he's done.

The true challenges will come in weeks like 37 and 41, it will be a fun project for all involved. 

INSTRUMENTATION 
will range from electronica to world instruments to classical instruments and more. 

What does Opus mean?
Opus is just another word for work number. Several composers have an Opus 52. It is normally just one work. They use the word Opus to catalog their works. 
I decided to use it in a slightly different way. It is my work of the year and comes in 52 parts. 
Enjoy

    I was going to compliment you on the oriental sound, but than all of a sudden that wasn't the sound. Pretty and mellow at any rate, your music is always a pleasure to listen to! Ott

    Colin, I liked the musical bed here. I would bring the vocal speech between 1:00 and 2:00 more up front in the mix. It may be my age, but I really had to strain to try to make out the words, so all of a sudden I was not so much listening to a pleasant tune as I was working at listening to it. Still, enjoyed. Ott

    This one has an other-worldly feel to it, felt like I was in outer space. Makes one feel enveloped. Also enjoyed your comments on the muse! Ott

    I felt I was way down deep in the dark blue sea. This one really resonated with me, probably my favorite so far. Ott

    I didn't realize you could get that many sounds out of a flute, or that the sound could go so high. Experimental or not, a real nice and unique piece.

    Different sounds, liked that drum thingie in the background. I got the impression of sharks chomping, not mud . . . liked the "twang sounds the last 30-40 seconds. Nicely done! Ott

    Well, Colin, I found that one particularly appealing. So mellow, so relaxing throughout. Like a short pleasant dream. Ott

    Sounds oriental to me at the beginning, then gets a harpsichord feel. Liked the lightness around 2:00. Another pleasant listen!

    I liked the vibrato effect a lot. Weirdly enough, about half way through the piece, I was thinking, "this is pretty calming" . . . and then I read the title! Nicely done! Ott
