Baritone sax & soundtrack. Duration 7:30
Composed 2007 for Willem van Merwijk, revised 2008. Premiere: 25-10-2008 Theater Kikker Utrecht Holland.
Based on a Christmas interview by Bill O’Reilly with President George W. Bush for Fox News in 2004.
The ambient soundtrack was composed of the voices of Bush, O’Reilly and a blend of sax, cello and guitar sounds, with added distortion from an overdrive guitar amp. The baritone part is doubling the soundtrack. The live baritone should blend with the track, in a ‘bleeding’ way...
Believer is also part of a suite for rock band, called White Flag, about the 2004 war in Iraq, written for Electric Kompany.
