Provider, Tamer, Destroyer

  • "'Provider, Tamer, Destroyer is not the usual symphony. Rarely do symphonies consist entirely of fast pieces or change genres. Rarely is a symphony composed entirely of synthetic instruments. It is, nonetheless, a symphony which plays at the strings of the heart.

    This particular work reflects upon mankind's relationship with nature as well as mankind's overall cultural development, past to relative present. Everybody knows the history. Multiple interpretations exist in textbook, TV, video, and satire form. But has anyone tried to tell this epic through music? If not, allow me to break new ground."

As far as my professor's reception is concerned, I can't complain. I got an A in that class.

With this in mind, I consider the assembly-line, money-first musical culture that surrounds me to be a disease. I intend to avoid this disease by whatever means brings peace to my conscience. ... more
