OK Everyone, here is another music score that I wrote for this medieval campaign game master. What I was going for with this piece of music is two general feelings: loneliness and magical uneasiness.
Now, loneliness is not the depressed feeling that lonely people feel. It is more of a, "I don't see anyone around here" type of loneliness. A peaceful quietness. I used the tremolo strings in the beginning of the piece to give a hazy feel as the party looks out into a forest world. There is no one around. Then the oboe and flutes come to simulate the birds and other little forest creatures. Throughout this section I try to keep the focus on the natural surroundings of the players.
Then, you could probably tell a sudden shift in the feel of the piece. This is where the more magical parts of the music come in. The glock(enspiel) comes in sort of like little fairy dust to tell you that things are not totally what you think that they are. As the wholetone scale feel sinks in, there develops (or at least I attempt) a level of disorientation in this land. It definitely is not what you think that it is.
I hope that you all like the piece of music. I have one more track that I have to complete for this game master before next weekend, so I have my work set out for the rest of the day!
