Thank you for employing basic courtesy.
Dust churns over the wreckage, guided by the hand of the fierce winds. The sun pounds down on foreheads, exacerbated by the fireball a dozen or so metres away. It's still burning. Worse yet, it's all real. So they really ARE dead.
Our heads are groggy, dehydrated and utterly drained. We lost the battle; we fell. Right as we thought we had victory in our palms, they drew their trump card. Our leader is dead, and the enemy set course for our cities. Our people don't stand a chance.
Which is exactly why we have to stand the hell up and move.
The underlying strings at the start and the melody of the last couple of phrases are a pair of themes I use a fair bit. That's because most of the music I write is intended to (eventually?) be used as a soundtrack for a specific series. It'd take some reworking, of course!
I came up with the main "theme" of this piece in the middle of a VCE Music Performance class, basically just twiddling my fingers on the keyboard. I lifted my hand at random and used "Hindsight lvl 3" on the motif I'd just played in the middle of a bunch of random notes. I tried it again, repeated it over a few times. Within minutes, I knew exactly how to turn it into what you're hearing now. It took me three hours in Garageband, start to finish, and I haven't edited it since. That was in 2005. Over four years ago.
This is only the third piece of music I ever managed to "finish". I thought it kinda fitting that it should be my third submission.
...Sigh, yet again the title's taken. My names must be fairly cliché. Prefix appended.
