ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The God's Eye started with a simple "what if?" and the question was..."what if the tempo of the music steadily increased for the entire film?".

Well...we began with the bassline (which is simply a single note) that repeats for the entire composition and made it go from 2 bpm (beats per minute) to ...well, I don't really know how fast it goes, but it is many thousands of bpm by the climax of the film. Possibly one could even argue that the tempo begins at zero (when you first click play) and possibly becomes infinite. Honestly, I was curious myself what was going to happen. I had no idea how this was really going to sound until I actually did it.

I'd like to add that I'm a synth player, not a drummer so I'd like to acknowledge that the drum programming on 'The God's Eye' was heavily influenced by these inspirational drummers: Neil Pert (Rush), Neil Smith (early Alice Cooper), Ginger Baker (Cream), Jon Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Jori Jordison (Slipknot), Phil Collins (early Genesis years), Bill Bruford (Yes) and Stewart Copeland (Police).

Since "Wheels Of Fire" came out with that long drum solo by Ginger Baker (in 1968) and watching Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich on TV as a child, I've been fascinated by drummers. I don't play the drums but in 1982 I got a DMX drum machine and programmed my first drum beat (for the song "Julie Is A TV Set").

I have loved drum programming ever since.

An aside: there were essentially two choices back in the early 80s if you wanted to program drum patterns on a drum box - The LInn Drum Machine and the Oberheim DMX. All the other rhythm boxes that I was aware of contained only pre-programmed rhythm patterns. I thought I was very very lucky to get my hands on a DMX. It changed my life.

Thank you, Fatrick (Fat Pat), for your synth contributions and your advice on the sub bass....this one's meant to be played on as big a system as your home or theatre or home-theatre can handle...and thank you to the producers of the film who gave us absolute creative freedom.

Lastly, you might want to know - it's intentional that the mood of the piece be unsettling - it was meant to start 'a little off' and become more tense until the film's climax...but it is a beautiful tension? Maybe...at least I think so.

I've really enjoyed creating the dark mood of "The God's Eye", and spent many months working on it. I hope you enjoy it too....Tona W. Ohama June 21 . 2012
