Overture!

Finished this, sort of. The indie rock opera is inspired partially by the stuff I was reading that led to the last post about UFOs and the apocalypse and other strangeness. It also gives me the opportunity to throw in songs that I’ve written over the years and have so far been homeless and can now be forced into a narrative.

Let me know if you think it’s overblown, especially the middle "bridge" part. And the first part becomes a wall of unintelligible sound, but it’s kind of supposed to. Sometimes less is more. Call this a rough draft. Here, I did this:

Not overblown at all. Soothing.

Very well done! It's very dramatic and sounds a little like a 70's horror movie theme.... Can't wait to hear how the worded pieces end up.

Cool, thanks. I wasn't sure if this would sound like a mess. I'm familiar with the parts so I can pick them out. So, to combine the two comments: it sounds like a soothing horror movie.

I liked it too. It could be behind UFO's or any number of strange happenings. I'm interested in how you got that piece on to your blog. I have a blog that will just take pictures. I'm a frustrated musician and would like to post music also. bobyourlifepreserver.blogspot.com

It all fits together nicely. Nice contrasts in the middle section, some melodic sounds mixed with some militaristic drumming.

I really liked that tune. My wife came home while it was playing and said, "ooh, I like this! Who is it?"
It reminds me a bit of Mike Oldfield's "Tubular Bells." Perhaps this is where the 70s horror movie theme comes from--"The Exorcist."

Thanks, good to see this. Bob, go to Castpost.com. It's easy to use and it's free.

Great! I liked it :)
I wandered through your blog that I found while searching for music...
Maybe you'll like the music on mine.

Greetings from Portugal!!

Your minor 6/8 is sad rather than other-wordly.. in a thoughtful way. The changes seem natural.
