Fanfare 20th Century

This fanfare is a computer sequence developed during an experimental period working with that medium. This is the third movement titled “War to End War.” It has an anti-war theme that has appeared in many Exis Jaxn compositions. The piece was composed with an inexpensive sequencer called Ballade on a 486 loaded with DOS 6.0 and the LAPC-1 sound card. It was performed at Ball State University in a composer’s forum investigating music and technology. To this day Bruce maintains his 486 for occasional compositional forays back to the dark ages! Recorded in 1992.
