This another electro-acoustic tune of mine with distinct hints of Ennio Morricone.

I was reminded by Karlos The Jackal's comment about Morricone and realized that I'm probably more influenced by him than I know. There's something really tasty and satisfying about the Telecaster-through-a-Twin sound. This song has it all over the place.

The drum loop gives way to a live drum track (another thing I seem to do a lot of...I like the contrast) played by my longtime collaborator and friend, Rob Greenway, a.k.a. Brilliantfish and there's also a nifty key modulation.

This song was originally from an album I put out in 2003 on Aporia Records and remixed/remastered in 2005, called Arousal Disasters. The original was more effected and reverbed but I thought it needed more punch and definition. This was the result.

Love that guitar line that comes in with the break. Whole piece is really nicely done.

Yeah, these are some killer sounds. The impact when everything shifts into "widescreen" with the live drums and the distorted guitars is awesome.

(I also have a soft spot for the 808 cowbell.)

Nice - transition to the "electric" is perhaps a little sudden though? Maybe a bar or two of percussion build up would do the trick?
