Burden of the Clock

A man waits outside the room, making his endless pace across his undecided pattern. Knowing not the tortures his wife is going through. He lights up his thirty-third cigarette. The clock on the room plays with his mind... it tells him his worries and doesn't help satisfy his emotional pain. The tick of the sound begins to make him tick in his steps, as the steps and tick are in sync with each other it makes the man more worried as insane, his mind slips slowly. The doctor busts through the door and bears the news upon the man. Life has been born again, a miracle seen in a room of science. A baby girl. The man enters and sees his wife holding his new daughter. He holds his wife and gazes upon his new daughter; a tear falls from his eye with more in line. Happiness through tears is a favorite emotion, but the clock was unjust and will still be unjust, although the man does not know this yet.

Did you put the tick in there for every single second? Because that's what I'm hearing and that was the inspiration I got for the story you have read above. I do indeed wish for you to continue your superb work. The melodies and ticks of seconds showing no matter how the melodies change in your life, time will keep pressing onward.

MaestroRage responds:

What an excellent story TGO... truly the burden of the clock here is phenomenal. The clock is always there, through bad or good, through pain or pleasure, it always keeps going. It may only stop as a means of going on is refused it, but even if one clock stops, there is an infinite number more then keep going.

To be fair, this is not just a ticking of a clock, it is also dbl bass string slaps. Which gave my clock's tick a more "old school" flavor, which is what I wanted. I also did not record each tick, I recorded to be honest, like 10 seconds worth.

Cutting those seconds up, I then put them to play with the tempo in time.

I am glad you found it inspiring enough to write a story, thank you for that, and the review! I'm glad you liked it!

Wow Nice

Excellent sound quality. Composed so nicely. You have amazing talent and I've always said so.

When I listen to this I picture a warrior of some sort running desperately up a giant tower... And at the top is his captured beloved one. As he runs in his last and Precious Seconds of her life... The sounds begins to get deep and intense as he's almost to the top... Hurt by painful memories... His brother his most bitter rival... Now they face each other for a final confrontation...


MaestroRage responds:

Hey Cajete! Long time my good sir, long time :)

The story is truly a bitter and hurtful one. It is never fun for one brother to kill the other, there is always the hope, that small, faint hope that it doesn't have to be this way.

Sadly this hope is very very rarely answered.

Thank you Cajete! Keep up the great fight yourself! I am a big fan of your work also!

I apologize for the late response!

You have once again made a masterpeice maestro

The mournful melody makes me think of a dying patient on a strecher being rushed to the ER. At first it's the patient's thoughts. Every second feel like forever as they remember their mistakes and good deeds. And as the song speeds up it's the hospital staff trying to save the patiant, where every second counts but the go by so fast. Then the slow back down is the patient dying. And then the family mourning with the little bell sounds. Oh, and sorry about commenting on your really early works, but I've really just started looking at the classical section of the audio portal.

MaestroRage responds:

by no means do I mind you commenting on my early works! I brings me joy knowing they are still appreciated and listened to. The early works are very sentimental to me.

Your story is one I could see happening well. It is definitely the case where being near death amplifies the events of ones life so many times. Everything that was taken for granted, suddenly has meanings that were beyond them before.

Thank you for the review, i'm glad you liked it!
