Destroyer and Preserver

Description
I'm not really sure what genre this falls under so suggestions are welcome--for now it's experimental.

I just took a rhythm and played with it and this is the result. I'm still working on it but just wanted to hear some reactions first. First half is in 9/8 while the second is straight 4/4. I got the title from a Percy Shelley poem called Ode to the West Wind. In the poem he's referring to the wind as being an entity of both preservation and destruction (and also alluding to the Hindu Gods Shiva the Destroyer and Vishnu the Preserver), and I took that metaphor and applied it to the time signatures--9/8 being the destroyer (destroying convention), and 4/4 being the preserver (preserving convention). Enough of the nerd talk. Enjoy!

Love the meaty tones here. The groove is tight.

Meat
Thanks man, I'm really fond of what I was able to come up with here tonally. Very thick and throaty. Glad you liked it.

Cool groove
Maybe a screaming Minimoog solo over it? But this is pretty cool.

yep
I was thinking something along those lines. Maybe some fusion kind of guitar soloing as well? Lots of possibilities here IMO. Thanks for checking it out.

9/8
Doesn't sound artificial in this case, which is not easy. Sounds great for me so far.
I love your idea of a fusion guitar (AND a glissanded tremoling wah-whashing moog too, in any order or together :-)

Sweet
I vaguely remember reading Promethius Unbound in school many years ago. I believe that Percey Shelly was married to Mary Shelley. I enjoyed her stuff a little better; she was more entertaining.

That's a cool song Mike. You mentioned something about putting guitar on this one. That would be interesting to hear how that would turn out.

I actually really enjoy Percy, but haven't gotten as much into Mary. His form is incredible--so precise and always with a greater purpose.

And yeah, I would really enjoy putting guitar over this, turning it into some wild fusion song. Thanks for checking it out.

Naming songs when your stuff is instrumental is fun (also difficult sometimes), so I make the most out of it! I'm glad you liked this one, thanks for checking it out.

Thanks karen. The 4/4 is just the 9/8 rhythm slightly modified. I'm glad you liked it!

This makes
for a great thriller theme movie score as well as being an overall dynamic arrangement. Good control on the sound quality.
