Power - Full Version (3.11MB MP3, 3:23)
by John Sawoski
Original electronic music. 8 versions in various lengths and mixes available. Combines haunting yet hypnotic melody, diatonic harmony, dance rhythm tracks, an assortment of synth patches ranging from computer-like sound effects to rave chords, and an “ad-lib” synth solo over the bridge. Overall it has intimacy, an air of mystery, power, movement, and intensity. The chorus melody is reminiscent of TV detective shows of the 70’s, and the verse melody is reminiscent of Japanese animated cartoons, yet there are also influences of French disco, Beatles vocals, sports videos, and Japanese pop songs. Could very well be useful in a variety of circumstances - sports soundtracks especially. © and (P) 2001 John Sawoski. Published by Million Oaks Music (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
