"Ascension" - an ambient track for guitar and bass, with help from paulstretch.

New Song: “Sonde”

For my last song of 2013 I give you one of the very few songs I’ve written in my constructed language, Toĵan. Hope you enjoy!

For what it’s worth, I’ll post the lyrics. There’s no translation, though; Toĵan has a phonology, alphabet, and the outlines of a grammar but very little in the way of a vocabulary so it’s mostly just for sound.

Eváladrir na te viþranden
Mo štíkoši dy vite nanden,
Éķori al diĵetana
Distona viķe, ma þregana.
Zuro maštie viķe nerĵi,
Va rike salver na zi verĵi,
On sovi naštia dire andan:
Na vaķa rinte o štieri nervan.
(Sonde)

Fen tarašia ne virongar,
Oķori taĵia ne vikurar.
Ádrasinde nake tu viel,
Ongata rine þadĵia na ķel,
Mikre natie vy eķuri:
Diestenoz adre ma ķivelši.
Sonde rintio ĵier etrandy,
A krante þeķur o ĵirany.
(Sonde)

Ekran da sane šeri sura!
O vaķa na tulevi tura!
Orasa ni ekran de sute,
Die vatra naķe ra tiþere!
Do ševa natia rige no val,
Ze ture naķe ratiaĵiral,
Orata se no vate made,
Ira na ĵeþura na sonde!
Na sonde, na sonde.

New Eothl song (probably) - “Kindled Kinesthetics”

Not sure what to use it for but NINE MARIMBAS.

(use some nice bass-capable headphones cause marimbas get muddy in their bass range)

10 plays

This is a piece I wrote a while back in 2009 for percussion ensemble, called “Cuneiform”.

For those wondering, instruments are timpani, bass drum, crotales, chimes, gong, xylophone, glockenspiel, marimba, and vibraphone.

New Eothl music: “Norbert’s Nexus”

Norbert’s theme has been no less than ten completely different pieces of music but this is not only the first one I’ve completed but the only one of them that I actually like.  

Anyway, I hope that you enjoy this strange little piece of music as much as I do.

New song: “Declaration”

IT’S FINALLY FINISHED. This one’s been sitting on the shelf for about a month or so and it’s finally done.

The clarinet is played by my friend Heather, who is awesome.

Lyrics:

Through all the years we sang our song,
For every day we laughed together,
A hundred years could come and go
And still I would say:
Ev’ry last breath of each day I give to you.

And should the tide come crashing down
I’ll follow you to the ends of the Earth,
And even over the moon to paradise.
And when we see its splendid gates
I’ll take your hand and leap inside,
Abandoning our foolish pride
Forever more.

And when that day has finally come,
We’ll know our trials will not have been in vain.
And even when the struggles of life are ended,
Yes, still I will say,
Ev’ry last breath of each day I give to you.

So take me away to the final frontier;
As long as I’m with you,
I don’t have a thing to fear.
And in the gleam of your light
I’ll take your hand in mine.
And should we be abandoned by our paradise,
Don’t be afraid: I’m by your side.

i wanted to post some new music but since i have none to post, here’s some old new music.

New music for Skeptical: “Pazienza Pacifico”

Possibly a theme for Slon?

(Apologies if I butchered Italian. The most of the language I know is what I learned from being a musician.)

New Eothl music: “Gill’s Goods”.

Gill is the game’s merchant and this is the theme for his shop.

(2nd attempt. The organ was supposed to be a lead instrument, not a background chill kinda thing. Now I’m afraid that people are gonna prefer the other one.)

bringing this back because i was listening to it earlier while playing along with the bass guitar part and i had a mini dance concert in my bedroom.

The battle theme for Eothl - “Xenocide Xing”

A couple things about this one:

  1. This is the non-looping version, for the soundtrack proper. There’s a looping one for in-game use.
  2. I might have cheated with the aliteration on “xing” but there just aren’t very many words starting with x so yeah.
  3. I don’t think there’s any acts of xenocide in Eothl but again I sorta trapped myself in a corner here with the aliteration thing.

The title screen theme for Eothl - “Reverberating Recitation”

I know that most will just click right past it so I tried to make the first few seconds interesting enough to provide a little color while the rest of the piece could stand on its own for anyone who does happen to just sit on the title screen for a couple minutes.

New Skeptical track - “Acid Rain”

So I went back and reread the whole comic for inspiration and there’s this one bit near the beginning where acid rain starts falling. It’s dangerous yet pretty so I wanted to write something that had aggressive and peaceful elements in it. Hope it came out well!
