Listen to the whole thing before you vote. 8D

So, if you've never read Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, you need to. It's epic. Gail Wynand is one of the central characters in the book - not the main character, but one of them - and he's a case. This is basically my take on "his theme."

The mechanical sounds in the beginning are printing presses, which are significant, because Wynand is the owner of a chain of newspapers, and at some point comments that the sound of the presses is "the heartbeat of the building."

Anyway, enjoy!



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very well done

Great work! Superb instrumentation. Great quality. I like the relative silence at parts of the song (i.e the calm at the bridge) that then begins building again. Very Nice.

5/5 10/10

Thanks, I really appreciate your comments! I worked hard to get the buildups to sound right, and I'm not quite sure I nailed 'em, but I appreciate that YOU appreciate them ;D
