Love the
way this builds Smokey, the last third is really tremendous. Those urgent beats are very disturbing. This is a fantastic piece - that really grabbed me. Thanks.
Cheers
Len

this song is actually two songs blended together. first i did a orchestral version of some keyboard improvisations. a few days later i did a techno remix. then it sat around a while. somehow the idea of mixing the two came to mind. the remix tempo is exactly twice the speed of the first version.

thanks

the march form really brings to mind militaristic concepts. i picked a song pic to guide the listeners into that frame.

thanks

Hey Smokey
Amazing piece of music here - you always bring home the goods. Very intriguing intro - followed by some seriously cool development in the clarinet to pizzicato strings for rhythm. After that it just gets better and better. First half is solid twentieth century classical - then you bring it into the present space of Smoke. Excellent!

BTW - the "Lost Song" challenge is off and running with your suggestion - open season. Care to join?

doing techno marches is kind of different, eh?

from wikipedia, perhaps of interest:

"German marches move at a very strict tempo, and have a strong "oom-pah" polka-like/folk-like quality resulting from the bass drum and low-brass playing on the downbeats and alto voices such as "peck horn" and the snare drums playing on the off-beats. This provides a very "martial" quality to these marches. The low brass is often featured prominently in at least one strain of a German march. To offset the rhythmic martiality of most of the strains, the final strain ("trio") often has a lyrical (if somewhat bombastic) quality."

not sure if i actually did all that stuff here...

thanks

Interesting march. Where did you get the horn voice? It sounds good. You then move through a range of interesting voices, some that sound almost like real instruments and others that are clearly synth sounds. I would like the hear the horn and "oboe" back all together for a more dramatic finale, but that's me. Another good tune!!

Thanks

the horns are JamPack4 French Horns.

also while poking around in wikipedia, i found this:

"March music originates from military, and often are played by a marching band. The most important instruments are various drums (especially snare drum), horns, fife or woodwind instruments and brass instruments. Marches and marching bands have even today a strong connection to military, both to drill and parades. Marches, which are played at paces with multiples of normal heartbeat, can have a hypnotic effect on the marching soldiers, rendering them into a trance, This effect was widely known already in the 16th century, and was employed to lead the soldiers in closed ranks against the enemy fire in the 16th and 17th century wars."

spooky!

thanks
