Inspired by Hector Berlioz’s “Marche du supplice” (March into agony). I imagined how I could interpret the shift between Rue being rebellious towards her mother, the apparent voices in her head, and her anguish.
The theme is quite dark and pressing. It almost feels impossible to escape. I added patterns in various bars which allowed for that.
One thing to note is that Berlioz was under the influence of drugs when he wrote the march, which was a fitting exploration of how far one could go while in a state of euphoria. Those were the themes that inspired me for this arrangement.
