Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away
Here's a cute new piece in the BandCamp hosted 391 & the Army of Astraea Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away thread, that changed, as many of them do, throughout the recording process to emerge as something very different than it started out. Originally conceived of as a "Steve Reichian" or "Philip Glassian" arpeggio-driven cycle, "Fortitude in the Face of Fallacy" incorporates several tracks of Latin percussion, an almost atonal synth guitar track, and orchestral undercurrent that swings the piece slightly to the world of Soundtrack / Film Score. The end product is a collage of soundscapes that falls somewhere in the "uneasy listening" vein, compared to an earlier 391 & the Army of Astraea tracks in this series, such as "Bipedal Locomotion", but as it is said - "It is what it is". Enjoy!
