BELIEVER

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.

 

OʼReilly:

So you are indeed a true believer?

Bush:

Iʼm a believer in the power of liberty to transform societies.

Iʼm a believer. And I believe we have a duty!

OʼReilly:

So you are indeed a true believer?

Bush:

I believe that peace is coming.

This world is getting better. And I believe we have a duty!

To transform societies...

I believe that peace is coming.

We climbed the mountain and now we see the valley below.

I really believe that.

I believe that peace is coming.

And I believe that weʼre more free.
