PREACH IT BROTHER!! I feel the power and the glory!

orchestra mix. but the content of music these two bands are as
vacuous as any music ever attemted. their music is the simple sugar
filled carbohydrates of the music world. the most common of musical
by comparison killing joke may seem - to the average sight trained
classical musician - to be a similarly simple content but this is not
true. maybe in comparison to more the stilted melodies of classical
or jazz they are more melodically simple band. but the truth lies in
the texture, background/underlying almost subliminal harmonic content
sound that geordie coaxes from the golden beast. it would be far too
easy and tempting for an arranger even of jaz's insight to attempt to
fill the tremendous effect of ample weight created in the space that
is filled be the modal noise of bpf, jaz, youth ( yet less so of
raven) and most importantly geordie's instruments.
and in all probability kj will not fare any better. however there is
promise in the fact that jaz, unlike lars and gene simmons, actually
has experience in both fields and with his head not quite as deeply
sunk in sphincter. this could lend a glimmer of hope that the roaring
bells of horror and grace will be given context in a grandious
classical piece. BUT ! only if the interpretation includes an
asssortment of large exoctic drums and most importantly this melodic
content that which is exclusive to killing joke.
specifically, all of geordie's parts must be played! this includes
the harmonic feedback, howls, wails and reverb/chorus. these musical
artifacts should not be disregarded as unnessecary or noisy
distracting trace melodies.
these sounds are part of the content of the melody! they are aspects
that shape the mood create the context and guide a listener into
places not known and are every bit essential as the 'base' melodies
so often exclusively exploited by orchestral arrangers for their
interpretations. the exclusion of this essential 'noisy' harmonic
content is why most orchestral versions of contemporary music fails
to hit the spot. another aspect that destroys these classical
versions are extemporary melodies added by an arranger that are
merely the interpretors 'enhancement' which dearail the focus and
power of the original.
if you care, i'll be more elaborate.
classical killing joke must analyse and announce every slight
frequency and trace element of sound content on the originals .
pandy's are coming would need to have all the dissonance and rich
squeal and sawing cat backbone texture of a synth begging for it's
life - as heard on the original. and these sounds must be played by
the correct instruments for the specific frequency range of these
"noises" in order to accomplish, or even warrant the classical
attempt of killing joke. ten violins and flutes playing the root
note and the secondary tone, will not suffice!
as well, all the sounds of a dinosaur having it's guts torn through
by geordie's harp during wilful days would need proper disembowelment
from cello, double bass section, bassoon and trumpet - while the
tympanies must accent every gritty howling near feedback appocalypse
of transient attack that comes from geordie's smack of the strings
in the addition, musicians must apply more rosen to their bows than
they ever thought was sensible - check their spinal broomsticks at
the door and dig in as if they must hack their selves from the belly
of a whale with nothing to hack with but their delicate twig and
horse hair bows!
to the simplify: the tonal texture of the orchestra must take a step
up from convention and join the world of trace melodic content
formerly known as "noise" and DIG IN!
but will it happen this way ??
besides the symphonic joke will most likely only cover the most
mainstream accessible and blase of kj melodies like those of btats,
otg, pandemonium, and kj2003
