State of Psychosis- Theta part 1 by State of Psychosis published on 2013/01/08 03:57:54 +0000 Now available on ITUNES and CDBABY (whole album for $9.99) www.cdbaby.com/cd/michaelchristophermacdon ***On iTunes just search either "State of Psychosis" or "Will of the Machine" State of Psychosis- Theta part 1 This is an Enigmatic Symphonic poem or a Symphonic Enigma. This is just the first part of the full version which is "Theta part 2" If you've noticed the volume is lower it's because it's supposed to be to preserve the dynamic range that you need for this type of song. It's only about 2 and a half decibels below standard average volume. You'll also notice a dynamic between the volume in the first and second half of this one. This is to be true to the genre in moving between piano, mezzo-piano, mezzo-forte, forte, etc. This is through-composed so there are no real repetitions. So far there is about 60 chords in this progression over all, but the whole thing itself is composed of smaller parts that also don't repeat. Chords can repeat in the composition, but they can't repeat in patterns in the way they do in modern music. I tried to use lots of inversions and add chords like add9's to keep chords from repeating as much as possible for an added effect.
