    Battle Plan (w/ gpo4 choirs)

    I see a bunch of Generals standing around a big table pushing their Armies this way and that while planning out the upcoming battle.

    This piece is the first time I have ever used a choir so it was an interesting experiment.

    The piece uses GPO4 and Independence Free for the guitars and synths.

    Here it is


    I am open to other titles, so what do you suggest?

    I know this is a brief work and something of an
    experiment, Ron -- but there's certainly a great
    deal of innovative and fascinating textural work
    in it! An intriguing listen -- may this serve, perhaps
    for the basis of a larger effort.

    My best,

    David Sosnowski

    Hi Ron;
    Tense and populated with many scary entities, innovative and varied experiment in voice usage. Lights, camera, action!! I can relate to your conceptual conjectures!!
    Best regards,

    lol, quite a ride here Ron!
    Love those "chunky" guitars;
    An interesting brew of instruments and styles you have concocted here.

    As for titles I like "Battle Plan"...
    For some reason your description and sound reminds me of the old 'Megadeth' videos where they had that "skull" army general, or something, trying to take over ... something.

    Where do I enlist? I am ready to go to war with/for you. It sounds like we will be battling the dark forces of evil.
    Great sounds, choirs can be real menacing (take that any way you want too.) The glissandi were very effective. Someday I'll going to learn how to do that.

    One word...Cool!!! The orchestration combined with the clean guitar chords makes it sound like some trippy guitar voicings. VERY cool, indeed.

    I have to agree with David, any chance of this being expand? I want more!

    Oh MAN, Ron! - I just get back from my peaceful retreat at the monastery, and THIS is what I'm greeted with?! HEEEeeeeeeeeelp!

    Well, it's a heady concoction, full of great, eye-opening surprises. Layered beautifully, with plenty of punch.

    The title makes sense to me, I think you should stick with it.

    I don't think I've heard you use slap back echo like this before. Gave it even more of a heavy rock feel beyond the mood the electric guitars were adding to the brew.

    Hot work, my friend!
