End of the War and Lost Commandos is a music and film combo which explores various themes around conflict. The title of the album End of the War is a play on my personal growth and "The Troubles" which raged around me in my youth – it is about the journey I have been on, growing up in Belfast during The Troubles and the process of reconciliation that we, in this part of the world are experiencing now. I hope it provokes some thoughts around the subject of conflict.
Conflicts don’t always occur in the outside world, they also occur internally. We don’t always know what is right and we struggle for the answer, that, sometimes ‘just isn& 39;t there’. Understanding the principles of cause-and-effect is something I became interested in growing up in the troubled streets of Belfast. There was even a term “Tit for tat killings” which took hold in the local vernacular. It seemed there was some natural law which was playing out – whether that was so or not. The thought captivated me and led me on a journey into the soul.
The album has been recorded and mixed. I am now ready to get it mastered, printed and promoted. This is the last stage of a process which has taking 3 years - a challenging and arduous process at times. All that is needed now is to get the project on the road and & 39;get it out there& 39;, so to speak. A project well worth the effort, I believe it both has artistic integrity and a very valid message.
To finish this project I am looking for £3000 to cover mastering + printing, PR and promotion.
