Ever read
the book "Something Evil This Way Comes" ...... if so maybe it will make sense when I say this track reminded me of that .... if you haven't then I sound like a loon huh? Downloaded

One of the coolest...
things about posting music is reading what it evokes in a listener. I think you’re referring to Ray Bradbuy’s novel Something Wicked This Way Comes (what a great title that only Bradbury could have come up with). I did read it many years ago and think I know why this might remind you of it. (Maybe that Carnival sound maybe and the darker twists it takes?) Thanks for listening Jack and letting this take you to that world and after reading this - me too as well.
Cheers,
Charlie

Never coming back...
...to this place you've limned in music Charlie, not MacJams! Gosh, you can just feel the backbreaking work, the tears and the blood in this. The dissonance, that percussion marking time like I'm toiling on a chain gang, the final solo instrument at the finish, perhaps an indication of finality to it all; this is such excellently conceived and executed piece. The strings were a good choice, especially as utilized here; they bring a sense of physical movement and grueling tedium to the composition. Again, you baffle me with where it all comes from, and then, how you make it happen. Thanks again Mr. Mazarakes for opening some portals for me with this, Michael

Like
many of us here I don’t always have the time to listen and comment the way I’d sometimes like to. That you spend time and thought on a work is a gift back.
Thank you Michael for your very kind comments,
Charlie

Add-on
A word that eluded me last night to describe your strings was "sinewy"! It just came to me as listened to this again on my PC earlier this evening. Oh, Charlie, really, when it's something I feel, I love giving my impressions of it and music is such a difficult thing to describe adequately I feel--you are more than welcome, and thanks for the enjoyment it bring me, even if it's a more challenging on the mood piece like this!

MJK said it:
haunting and mysterious, full of angst, fear, and (maybe) lots of regret. Your orchestration, Charlie, pulls a lot of emotion out of those strings. Courageous dissonance, too. It's awfully intense for the duration. I am exhausted listening. But maybe that was the point. You keep stretching the boundaries. That's one thing I especially like about this new composition. (You might fiddle with the dials a bit so that there's more variety in volume as a whole and between layers of instruments.)

Sometimes
a work can have a physical effects on one. I hope you had a V8 handy for a quick pick me up. Thanks for the very kind words and encouragement Paul.
Cheers,
Charlie

Never Going Back
This felt like quite a journey.. majestic yet with some sorrow.. my feel from this is mid 19th century. The foreboding drums... a heaviness.. well put together.. I hear some blues in this believe it or not..

You hit
a lot of notes there Little_Holligan and you’re right about the blues as well.
Thanks,
Charlie
