I can hear the connection. Add a bit of a marching snare to the original and it fits. The great political unrest feels well portrayed just by the music score alone (found without narration on Tidal), and the narration adds to the character's homage.Covenanter said:Vlad
Have you tried Copland's Lincoln Portrait? It's a mixture of music and excerts from Lincoln's speeches - I like Gregory Peck as the orator. You will see where the music for Saving Private Ryan came from.
The space given to each particle of music is something I really like, simply allowing sounds develop and dissapear but also overlap, create bridges of harmony. This has been done by postmodern minimalist composers thousands of times but it rarely sounds so weaved with harmony and for lack of better words melodic. The problem with this sort of compositions is it either feels like a mathematical equation (Reich, Riley...) or like a movie adaptation of a fictional novel, Amelie Poulainesque (Tiersen, Mertens...). The Book of Sounds to me personally feels like neither, in a good way. Makes sense?MrReaper182 said:

I've also been enjoying Daniil Trifonov's superb new Rachmaninoff CD. For me, he is by far the most exciting young pianist of today with a fabulous combination of fluid technique and quite colossal musicianship.
