Story: A disturbing interpretation of a song which was meant to prod young men in the USA to join the armed forces to fight in Europe during World War I. Literally thousands of these songs were written in the second decade of the 20th Century. "We’re Going Over" is just one of several penned by Andrew Sterling, Bernie Grossman, and Arthur Lange. I know of at least one recording of this song, released by Victor Records in 1917, recorded by the Peerless Quartet. Of course, my inspiration for recreating this piece lies in the fact that for years now, the USA has been sending its soldiers, weapons, (and now, its soldier-free drones) to muck around overseas, killing in the name of "liberty," and this vicious process only seems likely to escalate as two hawkish leaders vie for the US Presidency this fall.

Fantastic, man! Brilliant idea of remaking this, and your "disturbing" twist puts a delightful spin on the craziness we find ourselves in.

Gabriel, very glad to read your words of encouragement, glad you dig. Yes, Zappa, The Residents, MIDI scores... all friends of my ears. Of course, your contribution helped make this what it is too, thanks so much! I like your "Come Join Our Forces" video... great uses of light, reflection, water, AND sound. Keep up the good work.
