The Groeg assignment

This piece is scored as a theme for a FPS (first person shooter) game, you know these games where you have to kill kill kill people! Although they are not my cup of tea I imagined the following scenario:

You, as part of the Special Forces are called upon to defeat a terrorist cell that is based in the small village of Alkhan Yurt, Chechnya.
It is now 0346 hours, your ODA (Operational Detachment Alpha) whose specialty is counter-terrorism has just been deployed in the area and is in stealth mode. Visual contact with the terrorist cell has been established thanks to your NVGs (night vision goggles - do I have to explain everything to you? Gee ... ). A group of five heavily armed men are gathered around a campfire, dissimulated in a cornfield are what looks like eight old Al-Samoud II Iraqi missiles that have been modified to be truck-launched.
The lives of thousands of civilians are at stake. The adrenaline is pumping and your men are ready to go. You have to disable this cell. This is operation "Diving Mosquito" ordered by your old friend General Groeg who is back home waiting to kick your butt if this mission ever fails!

Feel free to comment on the music.

Please let me know of any issue with the mp3 player I am using. It works on both my Mac and XP machines but acts up from time to time. I wanted a simple solution for a flash player and that one was easy to integrate into the blog. However I am still looking for a better player, so any suggestion is welcome.
I am having a music-free weekend, this week was crazy.
See you soon for more music

Fushimi Castle [30s]

A thirty seconds clip that I first started back in 2004. As I was cleaning up some old hard drives I found a sketch I had made with only the low voice chords and the percussion beat. So I scored it as I would for a tv commercial or a short presentation, adding some japanese flavor on top. Your comments are welcome as always.
