|WISH YOU COULD HEAR (ft. Corvus Stone)|
"If you can imagine Brian May, Santana and John Williams composing a piece of music together, that can move progressive rock fans and cinema audience at the same time, then you are imagining what this music is attempting to be. In just 12 minutes, a musical thrillride with the flavours of Queen, baroque, latin music and a full orchestra. Moving, momentous and memorable. It has the structure of a classical piece but the freedom and surprises allowed in prog!" - Colin Tench (Bunchakeze & Corvus Stone), April 2013.
'Wish You Could Hear' is an important piece of orchestral rock music written with two central themes that carry through four movements. Although the themes recurs, they are not redundant, but are cleverly introduced through the piece with different instrumentation which, while symphonic in nature, is something you could sing with a single melody line.
The piece is refreshing as it has texture from top to bottom and has rhythms that change throughout but finds a way to get back the central theme at the end. With today’s music offerings being canned with the same format, this composition separates itself from the norm with a wonderful theme and exciting rhythm lines, combining rock and symphonic music together which was lost many years ago with the writings of Queen, Genesis, Yes, ELP, and the Beatles.
If you enjoy composition rather than the ordinary, 'Wish You Could Hear' is exciting, interesting, and pleasing to the ear.
'Wish You Could Hear', almost 12 and a half minutes long, features four movements of strongly contrasting moods, each one carried by a main theme, and ranging from 64 bpm to 163 bpm.
Majestic horns, electrifying guitar melodies, high-octane basslines, tight and precise drumming, fugal passages and Bach-like violin solos, all in one epic symphonic rock piece.
