Bombtrack


An alternative musical system for the first 30 seconds of the song "Bombtrack" by Rage Against The Machine.
The song starts calm but slowly builds up to a climax in which it really drops like a ‘Bomb’.
I wanted to integrate this impact into my work, which is why I chose to use materials like glass, wood and iron wire which I could penetrate through cardboard. 
For the raw guitar sound I used splintered wood in different sizes regarding the intensity of the guitar. Glass is used to express the more clean sound of the drums of which the vertical pieces represent the cymbals and the horizontal pieces represent the drum kicks, also in different sizes regarding the intensity. Finally the iron wire represents the very chaotic voice of Zach De La Rocha.
