(Erie Steam Road Roller scanned by Andy Dingley from the "New Catechism of the Steam Engine.")
“Steamroller” is probably the most busy piece of poligrafic music that I’ve written up to now, and features my new personal record of odd meters with an organ riff in 23. It is intended to hit hard and convey a feeling of inexorable mercilessness. In the “Juggernaut” storyline, it represents the apex of pain, and the metanoia.
The Music Of Poligraf series are reposts of writings and audio clips that have been originally published on The Goal Was So Near from November 2008 to April 2009, made available for those who missed the original Clip Of The Day series.
