Shunned By The Light is a passionate piece I wrote as a theme for Erik Lerki; a character of which I created who quite literally has been shunned by the light. This piece tells a story about him from the beginning to end in the form of a filme score. It is playable as it does have parts for the following instruments: Cello, Viola, Violin, Trombone, Bassoon, Trumpet, Flute, Oboe, Claritnet, harp, Bass Drum, Timpani, Snare Drum, Cymbals, and choir.
My goal is to someday have this performed, maybe even before I finish high school.
Erik Lerki was an 18 year old boy with blonde hair and blue eyes. He and his best friend Maximum Miezzer both lived in a future era in the middle of a giant war. Erik was in a tragic accident and nearly died. A group known as the HMC promised his friend Max to heal Erik and return him home, but little did he know what they were really planing.
When Erik woke up for the first time in weeks he was devistated to find himself in an entirely new body... The HMC's plan was to create a Superhuman species as a weapon to use in battle. The minute Max turned Erik over, Erik lost all his rights as a human and became "Shunned By The Light. His new form was the form of a monster, the appearence of an unholy demon.
Using his new powers, he was able to escape the HMC after finding out Max was the one who turned him over. He planned revenge, not knowing it wasn't his fault.
