Greatest Show On Earth
This track is about conflict and the many phases of conflict. The first section illustrates a peaceful and glorious earth but with an undercurrent bubbling along.
The main section in the middle shows different phases of conflict with the uncertainty rage and fluctuations in hope.
The last section is the aftermath where people are tired and things are broken but there is still hope.

Unfortunately this is a clown free zone. ;)

Thanks to those that give it a listen.
John

always enjoy your unique brand of electronica mixed with heavy metal. this one had it all. excellent production and the vox effects were great! your guitar playing was slick as usual over fine drumming as well. i sat back for the ride with all its twists and turns till i reached the peacful, final destination. well done, sir :tu:

Great track. I loved the synth intro with its different layers, which contained SciFi hints with darkness and light present in equal measure. Then the track moves into a guitar driven phase which sees us back in more familiar Allomerus territory, playing with timesig changes, propelled by some great work on the drums, before restating the main theme again. There's even a nice drone underneath that section. I loved the ending where the modified theme played on more "natural" sounding instruments and without the rhythmic element signs off with a more human and hopeful vibe.

Good work :)

Wow! That had it all. Soothing moments to death metal. It's like you took us around the world in 10 minutes. I think I need a cigarette and I don't even smoke. :lol:

Lots of great details in each section and the whole thing hung together even though it was very diverse. Well mixed too. Excellent. :clap:

Thanks layzer! I had a lot of fun with the vocals and investigating how to make that sound! :D

Thanks Tim! I found a great drone app for the iPad called 'Drone FX' which i played with while on holidays in Jaunary. Something new for me but a lot of fun...

The piano at the end is samples from John Cage's prepared piano which I used here as it sounds broken! :)

And of course Paul's drumming is spot on as usual, giving life to the track.

Thanks Frantz! While there are distinct sections there are several motifs running through the whole thing which I think helps with this. :)

Love your cigarette comment. :D (Don't smoke myself either...)

Cool stuff!

You seem to have a knack of chucking together a bunch of things I don't normally care for and making me quite like it anyway.
If it takes a week each day to walk a fortnight, the number of apples in a bunch of grapes is a banana the size of green.

Another great audio journey John, enjoyed the ride!

:hihi: Thought for sure when I saw the title that we were headed for clowns again.

Thanks THG! I like to throw different things together and try to make something different, so it's great to read your comment! :)

Thanks Matt! Don't worry this is a 'Clown free Zone' but it is on the same album as 'Clowns in Charge'. This track is more about the conflict caused by the clowns...
