This is NOT a complete piece. It is only a sketch developed as a test for a stage production (repeated many times). If you only need a few seconds, it is fine. Loping feel in 3/4 time.

"Long Time Coming"

Instruments: Electronic, Synth

Feel: Driving, Action, Grooving

Tense and mercurial, ?Long Time Coming? begins with a slow, frenetic crescendo, and at 0:40 builds into the main melody with heavy percussion. At 1:04 the percussion is tacit, and at 1:18 a rippling crescendo builds to long, demented pulls on the string bass. The percussive beat begins again at 2:18, and then the frenzied, reverbed staccato of the piano enters, accompanied by a swelling synth lead. At 3:40 the piece finds it?s stride with pulsating synthesizer effects and a rumbling bass line. Best used as accompaniment for a tense, difficult level of a game or as the final battle with a villain. Because of its steady bass beat and snyth effects, this could also work well to depict a tense and suspenseful race to the finish, or as the music playing during a vibrant, pounding rave.
