    The Darkness- A Requiem(Extra Dark)

    I took David Sosnowski's (etLux) advice and pursued the original flow of the music.

    The first section is unchanged and now the music stays dark until the last part which is now pretty much a choral resolution of the theme and it's ending.

    The second section is repeated with a bridge that has a connection to the first section but is also an interruption. It may be more noise than music or an effect. You might find it even a little humorous in a dark sense.

    I have listened to this a number of times now and am at loss for words.

    This one seems out there for you and yet still fits your style.

    Would this be a requiem for Hitler? Or perhaps for Benedict Arnold?

    I am happy you expounded on the ideas from the original and the added sections fit nicely.

    I guess I wasn't at a complete loss after all.

    Well done

    Hello Ron,

    I have listened to this a number of times now and am at loss for words.
    How about "It sure sounds like hell."

    Would this be a requiem for Hitler? Or perhaps for Benedict Arnold?
    I wasn't really trying to create a Requiem for evil doers. You know that Christianity teaches that Christ himself descended into hell. Of course today the concept of hell has become a metaphor but earlier in history it was a real place and it was packed with humanity of all moral stature.

    Hell as my final destination was very real to me until I moved out of my parents house so maybe there is some of that here.

    I am happy you expounded on the ideas from the original and the added sections fit nicely.

    I just went with it where ever that was going to be. I was probably influenced by Lou Reed's Berlin album and to a lesser extent his Machine Metal Music which was a double album of manipulated electric guitar feedback and of course Dante's Inferno(ha,ha).

    Well done
    Actually this was about my hardest piece to get all the bugs out of.


    Thanks for commenting and your support.
