Composer Notes

Well, Foundation has a verse from the beginning of the Bible, doesn’t it? Makes sense to include a verse from the end too... and what an end it is! There is so much powerful content in the book of Revelation, it’s hard to know where to begin. If you’re unfamiliar with the scriptures, you’d probably be amazed as to how many quotes you’d recognize from movies. Tombstone, Ghostbusters, the list goes on. The material not only covers the end of the world, but beyond, via a combination of mind-blowing visions, prophecies, battles, and more.

It was hard to find a single verse from Revelation that could sum up the book, but I think — at least for the purposes of the album — this does the trick. It implies an epic entrance, and a battle to ensue... but it also implies both victory, and interestingly enough, purity. The Lord himself is getting ready to do battle.

Musically, of course, this needs to be epic. But I didn’t want to go over the top with choir and all that. At least not too quickly. I didn’t want this piece to feel like the soundtrack to a heavenly battle scene in a movie, with a bunch of CG angels and demons clashing swords. Rather, it’s about the entrance. He has arrived. He is Faithful and True, and while a personification of righteousness and holiness, He isn't afraid of conflict or a fight. And brace yourselves, because that fight is coming.

From the Album Foundation

The above verse is a selection from the first release of The Words and Verses Project, which is currently in development. It is entitled “Words and Verses: Foundation.” Not only is it the first collection of works in the project, but the goal is that over the course of twelve compositions, multiple core foundational verses will be explored, setting the stage for future albums and themes.
