I must say that, firstly, I decided not to enter the contest because I needed to spend my time in another
compositions. But, there was an idea about this cover shouting inside me and I had to explore it.
I don’t know why since the first time I heard about this cover, even when we were voting to choose the
soundtrack, a doubt came to me. “how would it sound if…”
And I had to try it. So I burnt my “confort zone” and commit this crime.
Track Description : It contains many musical phrases from the original, with a really different approach.
My Creative Vision : What if a progressive rock band plays this cover. From the beggining I had Emerson, Lake & Palmer on my mind. I don’t understand why because it’s been ages since I don’t listen to their music but…I thought well, it is an energetic song (we are talking about living dinosaurs), and it has many variated fragments, some classical harmonies, some epic explosions, so maybe progressive rock could fit.
Composition Overview : It starts with a soft presentation of one of the more memorable phrases of the
original but with a changed flavour, driving to “the horns four impacting notes” (but not played with
horns). From there on the band enters shooting a “progression” (you know) of different parts, and
bringing many well known phrases. Some chord cadences are slightly changed to become more rocky.
Sometimes it goes a mess, Don’t panic, it is normal (strange substances in the times of the progressive
Main Sounds : It is a rock band, dude. Bass, Rhodes and Hammond keyboards, Two acoustic guitars for some classical passages, Drums of course, and electric guitars, one with a wah effect, other with a little distortion, an one more to play strumming.
I KNOW, I’M CRAZY
