Captains of Industry

This is woefully incomplete. I'm posting it, hoping someone will inspire me to finish it. Does anyone out there here something I don't? It got off to a good start. It started as a 12 tone row, but mutated into something satyrical and a little angry. I'd like to build on the prog direction here and take it somewhere unexpected and interesting...

Captains of Industry
OK ...this showed alot of work to be incomplete
this is too complex to be anything at the begin
anyway ..the monster pace for the song would
reminds me of ELP which I would connect to a
moog that more close to hammond than synth sound
like a prog J S Bach ..if thats make sense ..
it would need a jump of bass roll and drums
gives an electric guitar a groove ... just
how i love prog ...and you rock ...cant wait
to see where you are going with this !!!!!
thnx alot for sharin !!!!

Great tune. I actually had visions of that scene in the movie Robots where they are stuck on the recycling line.
As far as incomplete, I don't know about that. Personal preference, I would fill it out aurally a bit on the spectrum. Perhaps lower some of the keys stuff an octave, or float the rhythm guitar tone to the bass side a bit. Nothing is a must though, it's already good!

There's that guitar sound. Like all the directions that you take it. Sounds like all the inspiration is there and the unexpected remains present.

Nothing else like tonestones
Well, this could shape up to be a real monster. Good theme, unique sound, clever. It could be bottomed up (or down) a bit more. I hope you will flesh it out.

Hey Steve... an excellent study/painting of the subject matter... some guys like to take apart swiss watches and then put them back together... I'd like to dismantle you and carefully pay attention as you are rebuilt... then maybe I could learn what you know..

my friend you are wired differently... that's a great thing

I am hearing a funky bassline doing its own thing in there then for the when the the ascending and descending keyboard riff comes in, the bass snaps into the melody. I bet a solo keyboard break would sound good in there. Nice piece as it is though.

Holy 7 Crap
This got off to a really good start. The sudden silence fits the song - I suggest 3 seconds of silence and starting something totally different but equally intense! I am looking forward to see where it goes.

Many great moments through out this track. You could go anywhere and everywhere with this. The start is excellent with a great new section starting that could be expanded, but you can't end it like that, i think.

WOWWWWWWW I missed this one but WOWWWW
Steve, I missed a few, and I definitely endorse the direction you've taken here. You've got more imagination and ability in your "woefully incomplete" posts than I've given the place in two years. Amazing. Crimson part of the inspiration?

Gotta love Scott Carmichael's comment about taking you apart.

Nice synths chosen
I totally dig the synths chosen on this track. The arpeggio transitions or way cool. The straight 8th sound, tho is maybe too machine-like, may tend toward static or stiff when the song is extended. I've never been a fan of death metal vocals, even when talking about Capt of Industry. Maybe consider the seductive nature of their voice? Cool beginning. Looking forward to additions... Also, consider posting lyrics, even if half done. Thanks for sharing works in progress.
