Composer David Reeves modeled Heavy Left on the military commands and marching cadence of “Left! Left! Left, right, left!” The backing track is based off this same rhythm, although it is obscured a little within the context of this movement. You’ll also hear some space-like sound effects if you listen closely. Please enjoy movement IV, Space Walk, performed by Staff Sgt. Andy Emerich on snare drum.
Produced, filmed, and edited by Staff Sgt. Andy Emerich
