I just found out tonight that Yessi Kristianto, a well known keyboard player of The Miracle band who also actively contributing his talent for other project such as Samson and J-Rocks were also created a theme song for Triumph Motocycle event held some time ago.
First, I must admit that Yessi has a lot of tricks up in his sleeves, he might play on “normal” mode during his session with The Miracle band, Oh..you might want to google on Indonesia Maharddhika, he also played “Free Your Mind” single with The Miracle on that one of progressive rock album ever created in Indonesia. While on his other project, Yessi turns out to be more like musical wizard (like his twitter ID key_wiz) as his fingers creates a wide range of spectrum which will awaken your goosebumps.
It is interesting that Triumph Motorcycle appointed Yessi to create these theme song, since the first thing people know about Triumph worldwide is for its classic range of motorcycle such as the famous Boneville. Moreover, they will gasp when I remind them that Tom Cruise were also rides Triumph Speed Triple during some action scene in Mission Impossible. Well, for some motorcycle enthusiast, Triumph has some line up or should I say “class”: Classic, Adventure, Roadster, Cruiser, Touring and of course..Supersport.
When you listen to this Souncloud samples, each class represented by different theme. Somehow Yessi has did his best to create images, something that makes our imagination wander about motorcycle and its genre, and of course its characteristic. A journey with a Triumph Tiger 800 on a dry highland quickly builds up as Adventure theme song emerged with percussion intro. However when I listen up to Classic class theme, first thing that came across my mind was Bon Jovi, since the electric drum intro was more like “Lay Your Hands On Me”. But that was just me, perhaps you will come up with another images as you listening to these awesome musical array from Yessi.
