So another attempt at something people tend not to do, probably for good reasons. Anyway, judge for yourself:ólfur+Arnarson/_/On+a+Maddening+Loop?autostart

There are parts of this that made me think about what David Bryne's musical building in New York must sound like. Never been to it, but this took me there.

I just am amazed at how far you have progressed in the last 5 years or so we have known you on guitar noise :D

Wow! Good work yet again. For a time in the last 1/3rd of the play, All's I could think of was a movie scene with some guy who's story we don't know just walking around by himself on a cold gray morning. Non-descript guy, black coat and hat...probably state issued. Select few extras. Something maybe Copolla could have directed. No dialog, but at the end we each know his story, although none of them match. A few minutes (I think) after it ended, I realized it ended. Yup, you're doing some powerful work these days.

Oh, and the fast paced beginning. Nice. That alone is an area all in itself that I think you also excel at. I remember that song called Solder Of Fortune. It too was powerful. It's on my mental list of songs that I play probably once a week. Anyhow, you've shown that you can be powerful with the fast paced and the slow paced stuff. I'm rambling. Phillip Glass I'm sure you've heard of. He could cause insanity. But, his minimalist approaches are really powerful. Too powerful. Some can't listen to it. Rubric and Lightening are two quick examples. You gots that gift too, my friend. No matter the pace.

Thanks folks, this is the mid-section of a slightly larger work. Still working on fleshing it all out but will upload it when it;s done. :) Thanks for listening!

Very nice use of the minor modes for the melody. I love this kind of things!

Thanks for sharing!

I'll keep waiting for the next version. :D
