ALCHEMICAL TEMPTATIONS (5' 30")
SNARE DRUM/FOUND SOUNDS SOLO WITH AUDIO ACCOMPANIMENT
Commissioned by George Warner, Alchemical Temptations is a programmatic piece inspired by the anime Fullmetal Alchemist. In a world where alchemy is thriving, the series questions the ethics of alchemy in their world. This piece takes you through a tour of increasingly more controversial alchemical experiments as it progresses. Starting off with excitement and high energy, the alchemy in the beginning is fun and magical. As you reach the end, however, the tone has darkened and the energy has been exhausted as we witness the most controversial of alchemical experiments. Although controversial, the temptation is too much for the alchemists to resist, and too intriguing for us to look away.
