This came about out of boredom.

On non-social things I like to push myself to be great even if I have never done it. In the case of music I can write the standard EDM or noise shit, and even some metal, but most, especially heavy metal, are a niche filled by a shitload who all sound the same... I also can't solo for shit and get made fun of by other guitar players.

But they can't all do this...

As I was listening to Mozart Symphony #40, I said, I will try to do this. Aim for the stars, right?

And I still do not know why I chose D Major. To make it start as cheesy as possible perhaps.

Symphony in D Major (part 1)

Length: 9:03

0:00 - Prologue
1:29 - Land of Make Believe
3:19 - Morningstar Suite
5:52 - Falling

As it came together it became obvious it wanted to be about Satan...

...And Land of Make Believe was indeed inspired by The Simpsons.

I am very proud of it, and would like to share it for either criticism or feedback.

Enjoy or ignore.

I listened to it couple of times, and it got really interesting from 5:51 to 9:02, ... what were you trying to say?

Anyhow, I grew an interest for stuff like this; a solo expressive one; and perhaps you might consider using something like this along side your music.

To be perfectly honest, the only thing I did by way of any planning was putting "Satan Lore" alongside about the happiest scale ever to let it write itself from there.

And by that I mean, I Just kept doubling parts and changing instruments and notes to a 4th, 5th, 7th, and 9th, to fill in high or low.

The themes of each were:

'elegance', 'follow the leader', 'malaise' , and 'stories being put to use'.

And I also realize there is a part in there that sounds like Gershwin, but It worked too well to take out.

Make of that what you will..

And thank you!

Yeah. Attention grabbing title aside, I liked the use of a happy major key for satire reasons. Still...

I can't escape that this second part just sucks. I feel I rushed the shit out of it. There is layering that bugs me, and a whole host of sour notes and meandering/overused parts that leave me less than proud of this effort.. the next part will be better.

Since posting I have fixed it up to my liking and the full version of both parts can be listened to here.

Cool suggestions though.

More self promotion. The above symphony has been completed, albeit somewhat short in length. The final tracklist is below. Part 3 bugs me (0:00-3:33). I tried dischord in a major and feel I failed.

Unique ideas, I have no intelligent ones, but I can do music slightly better than others.

Also being promoted is the EDM Sucks EP

A bunch of experimental music and syncopated rhythm tracks.

EDM Sucks EP

Total Run Time: 22:51

1. Uno, Dos Locos Musica  (2:28)
2. American History 101  (4:19)
3. Know Your Drugs  (2:47)
4. 777  (3:41)
5. No Greater Message  (4:31)
6. Blacklight Sonata (3:45)

********************************

Symphony # 1 in D Major

Part 2:  Cycles of Servitude (6:38)  

0:00 - Indoctrination
2:03 - Contribution
4:01 - Work

Part 3: Endless Strife (8:51)

Latest thing(s) to promote.

Two versions of the same (albeit differently arranged) piano piece in A minor. One all in piano, and the other with strings and cadence emphasis/variation.

Titled Winter Song and Piano Sonata #1 (Winter March) respectively.
