The Second Viennese school of Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern has long been of interest to me.

The idea of composing a melody line comprised of all 12 notes without repeating any is a tough job.

I have written two pieces based on a 12 tone line and Vienna Blues is one of them.

My goal was to construct a piece using this inherently angular line in such a way as to “smooth out” the angularity and present something the average listener, who doesn’t care about how the thing is constructed, can enjoy.
