Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away

With New Year's Eve fast approaching, and film editing slowing me down to a snail's pace, it seems that there is no avoiding a paucity of posts this month on the Gauntlet of Balthazar.

As slakerly as that might be, internally at least, I nevertheless thought I'd squeeze in one last Industrial-Electronic creation with the you, the internet, before that big ball drops in frigid Times Square.

Therefore, welcome to yet another installment of the Bandcamp hosted 391 & the Army of Astraea Electronic Music Piece of the Day Give-Away.

Today's outing is titled "Le Balançoire Nuremberg" and to explain the reference a tad...a balançoire is a movement in ballet that imitates a child's swing. Coupled with the image of inmates awaiting sentencing in the post-WWII Nuremberg trials, this short, fanciful piece attempts to capture a childlike and comical, yet lurid, "dance".

I think the track came out fairly nicely, and if it is indeed the last offering the Gauntlet will be able to summon prior to 2019, then to all - Have a very Happy New Year!

Till next time.
