Rise

When I finished writing and recording “Prometheus” in 2013 I had a few unused melodies & ideas left over.  They became the beginning of the compositional process for “Rise”.

Once again, the focus is on long, heroic melodies & epic themes done with electric guitar & rock instrumentation!  But this time there are six pieces & the
storyline is more abstract.  Each one of the six tracks is titled with one word that conveys a concept to move the stereotypical story arc forward.

There are 3 melodic themes used in this long introductory piece.  They are interconnected, or integrated, by means of being modulated through different keys, worked through variations & played at various dynamic levels.

The 1st track of “Rise” is “Struggle”.
