Thomas Bergersen's Hybrid Symphony "Seven"

Well, I mean American Dream and the upcoming "symphonic" work. Seven he actually did call a "hybrid-symphony", but not the 2 others. That's what I meant.
Somewhen in late 2018, I read (most likely on Facebook) that they (Thomas and Nick) had 4 hours of new music coming up. Since then, Dragon, American Dream, Seven and a couple of singles were released. Quite a lot, but still nowhere near 4 hours in total. Humanity will be a huge album though from what I've heard and will probably take most of the left playtime.

I think that was just Thomas though. Speaking for the amount of new music he has coming up.
There is also another symphonic work coming + Dragon II (work title - and last time Thomas had about 42 minutes of music on the album, so possibly next time too). And that together with Humanity is even beyond the 4 hours. Also important - he said he scrapped a lot of the tracks on Humanity - by the'll appear in other places. Probably TSFH albums or singles. I'd say producing ao much music at such a high level (with 99.9% of the whole process in his hands - no minions) is basically insane.

What I find interesting: If there would be a strange rule that pedal tones are completely forbidden 80% of this music would not exist (this is at least a first impression). I wasn’t aware that this device has such a dominant role for tb style.

(cracking up!)

It doesn't take a genius to figure out there ain't a thing in that "symphony" to compare with what Sir Gustav did. And imo it mostly sucks on its own.

But that's just my opinion. I do find it delightfully amusing that I received two "angry" reactions...who came up with that silly idea for this forum, anyway? Kind of turns me off in a Facebook way. I thought vi control was better than that...much better.

Though I still find myself laughing over both the angries and Will :)

There's never anything wrong with something you like, so just like whatever it is and don't necessarily worry about what others think...why would what I think matter so much you'd put a comical frownie face up? I'm nobody.

It's got nothing to do with your appreciation (or lack thereof) of Thomas work, it's the "I'm listening to Mahler, thus I can't appreciate something that is beneath" comment. As if it was a badge of elitism of some kind.

Hell YEAH it was! Proud of it, my friend.

I really enjoyed the music. Not every passage is a new "all time best", but he shows phenomenal compositional chops from my perspective. In places, the Choir "screams" a bit too much but I find it overall very melodic and interesting.
