Sam Burton - Vocals

Thomas Ashe - Composer

-

Description Thomas Ashe was a leading figure of the Irish Rebellion. In 1917 he was imprisoned by British authorities for seditious speech. Sentenced to two years hard labour, he protested any criminal sentence and responded by going on hunger strike at Mountjoy Prison. Overly rough force feeding by the British authorities led to his death 5 days later. In 1916 while imprisoned for his participation in the Easter Rising, Ashe wrote the song, 'Let Me Carry Your Cross.'
Singer Sam Burton rises to the occasion with a soul-baring rendition of this melancholic work.

Description This one requires some explaining...

 

After picking a random genre out of a hat for a college research project, I was introduced to the hilarious, insane world of Vocaloid - a virtual singing program that's huge in Japan. This track was made as an attempt to learn the Vocaloid software and to compose hilarious nonsense! It involved each syllable being programmed into individual music notes for the software to sing and then composing a high energy 'anime-rock' style song to compliment it.

Credits Bryan Jardim - Composer, Guitars, Recording, Mixing & Mastering

Description A contemporary piece for an 8 electric guitar ensemble, all played with slides and electronic bows. In western music, notes are arranged in 12 equal steps before an octave is reached. This piece was composed to heavily explore the microtonal world of music. An advanced music composition created to musically reflect the sounds of an air raid. Higher guitar parts are analogous to emergency siren sounds while the lower guitar parts recreate the Doppler effect sounds of airplanes and bombers.
