There have been some who have said that my use of percussion has been too limited over the years.

Well ...

I present to you: "Colosseum" and the height of battle on the sands -- famous gladiators fight to the death for Rome's glory.

Yeah, I just finished watching "Roman Empire" on Netflix and I was a little inspired by how great that show was! If you get the chance you should watch, or invite me over and we will watch it together!

I originally had monstrous brass playing in the background, but I decided to cut it as I thought it was too much for an intense fighting scene. Sometimes music is better when heard in the background.

This is amazing. I love the ending; I didn't expect that sound at all.

Bosa responds:

Awesome! I really wasn't sure what people would think about this, so I am very happy that you enjoyed it.

I love the dense, intimidating texture of the percussion. Even though this song is all drums, it still has a pretty nice sense of ebb and flow about it. Good work with the rhythmic content too, and the production is loud and clear. Keep up the good work, Bosa!

Bosa responds:

Yeah, I use a little syncopation here and there to give it a more dynamic feel, and I refuse to let a composition overlap itself.

I do intend to continue! Expect to hear a very large project coming soon in the future!

Awesome work :)

Bosa responds:

Thank you!

This is really cool! Oftentimes I'm not too fond of primarily percussive tracks, perhaps because they aren't varied enough. This piece, however, has great dynamics, variation and a progression!
I can totally see the scene you described while listening to the music :D

Bosa responds:

I'm the same way. I'm glad that you enjoyed this one!
