Composer: Michael Pote
Total Time: 7:10
Way of the Warrior has always been synonymous with the way of the samurai life, loosely analogous to the concept of chivalry. Michael Pote's original composition includes Training of the Warrior (the first 51 seconds is an optional Pre Show), The Art of the Sword, War, and Celebration. (Please note there is No Percussion score available with this show.) One possible story line could be as follows: an elderly Samurai Outlaw reflects on his life and his past. Haunted by an epic battle with his elder brother, he relives a moment where his bandit lifestyle leads him on a dark and uncertain path. Emerging from the shadows he learns of a forbidden relationship developing between his brother and his servant and with a burning rage he plots revenge that could change life forever. You may wish to outfit only the auxiliary in appropriate costumes or go all out and dress the entire band in warrior outfits. Backdrops could include poles with banners, lookout towers, large doorways and forestry. As with any Center X Productions show, visual concepts can be changed to fit the needs of your group. This show offers many unique musical moments and ideas that would work well with many themes or guard ideas.
Sound effects are available for most shows on our website. For most MSC and Center X Shows, the files are delivered at no additional charge as a Run Audio FX app file (requires purchase of app subscription) or $100 for separated sound files.* Availability/cost for sound effects or narration varies with each publisher/partner on our site.
For more information about Run Audio Fx, visit www.runaudiofx.com and test drive the app for free!! This is a completely customizable and powerful app that can work with any sound effect/file (yes, you can upload your own files into the program)! You can use it with your existing sound system (including self-powered speakers...by wired or bluetooth connections), by touch, with midi keyboard (full-control without touching the iOs device), and hundreds of sound effects are included with the purchase of a once-a-year subscription!
After you set up your show/soundboard, you save the entire RAFX Soundboard or "show" in a cloud service, or e-mail the file to yourself or collaborators on the project that havre RAFX. This way, if you have to reset the iOs device or get a new one, you can easily upload the file again and be up and running in a few seconds. Try doing that with a computer, its software, and additional hardware components...you've all witnessed that pre-show nightmare at least one time in your careers!
Save thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours working on additional equipment to deliver high-quality, non-compressed sound files in any performance situation.
