UIFs + the Felon  (John Pazdan, U.S.A.) 2:36

Track 03

Luck + Death: home page — Amazon — Kobo

This is a track by John Pazdan—a veteran musician formerly of Pezband and Off Broadway USA—although I added some effects at the beginning and the end.

I love the way that the fast, percussive element is combined with slow, melancholy strings.

This track represents a scene of frenetic action in the book, and the dual quality of the music, simultaneously fast and slow, captures the way we sometimes subjectively experience adrenaline-filled events with an altered perception of time—things move very quickly and, at the same time, seem to take forever.
