Hi my biab's friends,

Like many people, we are sad to see so many innocent civilians killed in this war in Ukraine. With this instrumental composition, I tried to convey to you the fear of these people who are bombarded daily.

ps : Do you know the translation of dies irae in this composition which means day of anger ?

Used tools

Vst biab for chords
some wave files on the internet
eastwest choir
Spitfire chamber strings
8dio synthesizer arpeggio
Ez drummer

If you are kind enough to comment and listen to this instrumental composition, thank you in advance. Your advice is always welcome. Excuse me for the delay in my answers because it depends on my free time. But I always respond to each of your messages sometimes several days late..

I like it, sounds like a score for a war (or anti-war) movie.
Hollywood is calling smile


Making bits and bytes sound good...

Me on YouTube

A worn acoustic guitar, an even older keyboard, some software and lots of ideas...

Derochette, very well done.
I feel a lot of military tension in this piece . . . marching and helicopters.
Likewise I hear the human anquish resulting from war.

Great job and Long Live Ukraine !

PS> We get a good daily summary of what's happening in the war from Brent Goff of DW News (Berlin)

For me there’s no better place in the band than to have one leg in the harmony world and the other in the percussive. Thank you Paul Tutmarc and Leo Fender.

Yeah, JJF, this was first rate and sounded just like what you said it was about. Super production. I wasn't familiar with Helicos and it didn't google, is that the same as the god Helios? Got a little lost there. Anyway, super job, you got a talent for this kind of work and it surely shows.

Hi Derochette
I have a lot to do with Ukrainian refugees
And they have experienced so much bad (especially if they come from the East)
This country can use all the support it can get
And your song can help to wake up people not to look away and to help
Great song with a great message behind it
Well done
Thanks for sharing
Many greetings
Andi ;-)

Derochette:

Outstanding arrangement once again—love the early tense build up starting off . . . drum work is excellently sprinkled in, giving this both urgency and dread. Love the use of the choir to accent the piece. Really well done!

All my best to you,

Deej

Derochette,

Stunning. Dramatic. BIG.
Captures the drama perfectly.
Great mix.
Exceptional composition.

Why the world hasn't banded together to rid itself of megalomaniac tyrants (in all countries!) is mind-boggling.

Hi DeRochette ...

Powerful! This composition demands a huge soundstage and you provided it perfectly. I particularly enjoyed the build-up as the song approached the ending. Very well done!

Agree with Floyd: Why the world hasn't banded together to rid itself of megalomaniac tyrants (in all countries!) is mind-boggling.


Excellent work! Very enjoyable with a bold message

Like B.D. says:
This is really music for a war movie!
Very good but also frightening.
But war is frightening.

There are a lot of Ukrainian refugees in my country too.
It's terrible what's happening over there.

Let's hope this music, however good, can be put on a shelf soon.

Derochette,

This is a very good production that is mixed really well! I think it conveys the atmosphere the title proclaims! Nice use of effects!

Hi B.D.Thomas ,
I spent a lot of time on this composition that I created a year ago. I tried to colorize it these last days to make it more alive. Thanks for the nice comment.

Hi Bass Thumper,


Trying to transcribe in sounds the suffering of people who only ask to live in peace is not an easy thing. Thank you for stopping by and appreciating.

Hi TuneMonger,

The god of mythology Helios (God of the sun) has nothing to do with this composition. I had used an abbreviation for helicopter in the description and it was confusing. I corrected the title That being said, thank you for the comment you were kind enough to post on my page.

Hi PROJECT M ,

Many people suffer in times of war and I salute the work you do to help these poor people. In Europe, we have never experienced this since the Second World War. Thank you for your nice comment on my composition.

Derochette,
Cinematic, ominous and moving; you captured the intensity you feel about the outrage of this conflict.
I especially liked your use of the eastwest voices to bring the angst to a human level.
Wonderful production skills as always with your work.
Very well done.

Robert

Hi Dan (Firesong),

I'm glad you like this instrumental composition because I saved a lot of time to color it with sounds of helicopters that can be integrated. Thank you for your comment.

Helicopters Came From the Sea but hell came from the East.

My prayers go out for all those civilians in Ukraine.

This song captures the hell those civilians are going through.

Excellent work.
