Whoa - great stuff Gurdonark! I love the rhythmnicity of this piece. (rhythmnicity, n. the quality of having a rhythmic nature as a defining element where it is otherwise unexpected :-)). The production is spot on, all the elements working well in their places, both alone and together. There is an energy and urgency in this as well as the poignancy one would expect given the subject, but it is not morose and depressing.

Rather this piece produces energy and anxiety in the listener and has the potential to open eyes and hearts and possibly to spur some action. Congratulations on a remarkable bit of music.

(now if you will excuse me I believe I have some poetry to write …:-) )

War is always right. Peace is only an inevitable by-product of the process. Victims are acceptable, especially the young and the old.
Wasted towns and cities can be rebuilt. People can recover. Most memories will fade. War is great!

All this must be true as man through the ages does nothing to stop it. Plenty of words yes but only words.

The Russians knew this. Victory was never in question only the timing of peace.

My Grandfather died in the first world war. My descendents will all die in the last world war.

Very impressive. You managed to translate the ugliness of war into sound. Not an easy job. Well done !

No one paints a picture with sound like you.
This one is very vivid.
So sad.
