"Random Fire" from the album "No Limit to the Skies"

Random Fire



Hi Everyone,



This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Random Fire" from the "No Limit to the Skies" album. This is the original concept of “Random Fire”.  This was written for a scene for the Virtual Reality air combat simulation game back in the mid 1990’s.  The piece describes being chased by SAM rocket missiles (Surface to Air Missiles).  When trying to avoid ground fire, you of course try not to get shot down from these.  As you listen to the piece, you can hear as if missiles were chasing your jet aircraft trying to avoid being hit were described in the music itself.  The piece is relatively short for being in the scenario or situation on the game.  I rewrote and extended it to a longer version which was later released in 2014 on the “In Motion” album.

More things to think about.  In the meantime if you haven't listened to my other albums, feel free to share any of following links below:

"Pulses" from the album "Variations"

Pulses


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Pulses" from the "Variations" album.
This was an addition to the original layout on the "Variations" album.  There was a reprise of "Moving Forward Triumphant" which I thought was a bit redundant. The reprise was for a film short I did back in my college days.  It worked for the film quite nicely and it seemed to give me the grade I was going for.  Being a short album, it didn't seem fair to finish with more of the same thing.  I was experimenting with some new instruments and technology at the time.  With the title of this album it seemed to be the right place for this piece.  I figured "Pulses" was a good way to conclude this album.

"Intrigue" from the album "No Limit to the Skies"


 Intrigue


Hi Everyone,


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Intrigue" from the "No Limit to the Skies" album.  This was another piece that didn't seem to fit for the this album.  This was yet another style for what was requested at the time.  Another variety to try at the time.  This was a simple melody with a more of a subtle Jazzy beat that seemed catchy and just wanted to hang on to.  The name alone was just more of a question and left to "Intrigue".  This piece almost made the "Solace" album.  I decided it was just not quite fitting to the pace and feel of the album and kept it to the current anniversary album.

"Down Below" from the album "Variations"

 Down Below

Hi Everyone!


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Down Below" from the "Variations" album. I originally wrote this piece for a class project in my college days.  It was for a short scenario and while at the same time learning some new techniques.  I was trying some new recording software and instruments.  This was a short music segment which was taken with one take.

"New Sound of Victory" from the album "No Limit to the Skies"

New Sound of Victory


Hi Everyone!


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "New Sound of Victory" from the "No Limit to the Skies" album.  This was one that was just fun to play along with.  The piece was originally written for a Video Game (VG) in the days where game technology was in a large transition. From 8-bit Atari and Nintendo digital beeps and sounds to music composition for other 16-bit game systems.  Many of these music pieces were a challenge to work with for length and timing.  I was aiming for a successful conclusion for a scene in this game.  Most of these scenes were relatively short to be put into play during loading time or end of a mission sequences.  Of course everyone wants a victorious ending.  The project as many of them are were changed, cut or adjusted to fit criteria.  This was one of them.  Things were not always consistent and were at times outdated quickly.  This original concept made it to the 20 Anniversary Edition of this album and also was re-written, lengthened, and then released on the 'In Motion' album in 2014.  After such a long trip of not making its debut, it is now available for your enjoyment.  In a way it is a 'New Sound of Victory'.

"Heavy Steel" from the album "Variations"

Heavy Steel


Hi Everyone!


This week I wanted to talk about the music piece "Heavy Steel" from the "Variations" album. This was a piece originally started as an experiment to see if it was a style that I could play.  This was yet another piece that was shelved for many years.  Later came 'Random Fire' from the 'In Motion' album that became a stem from this idea.  That piece came across better than expected.  Most of the the melody of 'Heavy Steel' stayed the same but has been rewritten to a point.  The lead guitar part was a bit different and little more aggressive, to the point that it was not very appealing or interesting to listen to.  I wanted to play it to where anyone listening won't feel like it was too strong and yet made its point.  Some of the drum hits you hear are indeed real metal sounds that you would hear in a steel refinery to give it more of a appropriate effect.
