Lead Instrument Suggestions

Posted by Ymper Trymon , in Music Jul 01 2013 · 108 views

music composition question
So I've got a piece of music that's been sitting unfinished on my computer for something like two years. The current list of instruments is as follows-
 
-Flute
-Alto Saxophone
-Electric Guitar (Jazz)
-Electric Bass (Fingered)
-Drumkit
-Timpani
 
The first section went along fairly smoothly, with a four-measure ostinato primarily played by the flute and saxophone... the only problem is that, at this time, there isn't actually a lead instrument. Nothing's actually playing a melody over this, which is a big problem that kind of needs to be fixed before I go forward with this.
 
I'm going to experiment with various instruments to see what works well here. Suggestions are encouraged, as they might make my work here a little bit easier.

Try a trumpet or cornet; that instrumentation list gives me a 70s Miles Davis vibe.

So far, trumpet seems to be doing a fairly good job.

What about a violin? If not try an electric guitar (non jazz)

Tried my other options for electric guitar (clean, overdrive, distortion - writing with TuxGuitar) before the trumpet suggestion was made. Might see about adding violin into the mix to back up the trumpet.

All excellent choices, though I don't intend to write for didgeridoo until I own one.

 

Also, not really seeing a place for violin to fit into the piece at this time. Still a bit iffy on the melody the trumpet's playing, but at least I'm reasonably sure it's the right instrument.
