Strong pedal melodic line. Very loud, so watch your volume settings. About 5 minutes long. This could be called the composers cut, as it is severely cut from the original, which was nearly twice as long.
Plenty of loud howling and growling dissonances, enough to make your hair stand on end and make your flesh crawl. Watch your volume, as this is loud. Probably would be most appreciated on Halloween.
The title you put on the first one, Politics, really fits with the disjointedness of meter and chordal agreement in there! Reminded me a bit of a Widor piece in tone and general pace. I really liked some of the inner lines you have written in there, the polytonal counterplay beginning around 2:30. The ending caught me a little off guard, though.
I really enjoyed the footsome organ. Great continued motion and the weight of the organ on those mostly-resolved-but-not-always chords is so warm. If you're still working on it, perhaps rework the transition around 2:45? It's a little jarring, almost sounding like a completely different piece, but with a few measures that could be fixed (is this where it was cut?)
Dies Mali definitely is creepy. Nicely crafted uneasiness with the playtime melody in there.
I think The Footsome Organ was my favorite. I thought I could hear the ghosts of classic rock music in it.
Race To Chaos was pretty wild and crazy like many political races.
I for one haven't bothered watching the primary debates. Washington State suspended it's presidential primary for 2012 because it's so broke. We probably know who's gonna win anyway. The guy with all the money!
Well, it is certainly some intense music. In part, it is an effort to get the organ used as something besides church music. It has such grand potential, which is vastly under exploited. I would like to see many more organ venues, which would probably mean more electronic organs, which is okay, as there are some very good ones. When I heard my first electronic organ (exclusive of the ubiquitous Hammond) I was shocked and thrilled. I was about 21, and was helping my mother select a piano, when we saw the Allen in the show room, and I could not resist playing it. I was mightily impressed, as was my mother, who, incidentally was also impressed by my organ skills, of which she was ignorant, as I had learned while I was away from home for a few years.
Thanks for your attention and comments. By the time you listen again, I expect to have much more organ music written, not all of which will be so intense. It can be a bit stressful writing such music, as well as enjoyable.
