This is a song completely based upon the percussion that I made as a base.
From there, I thought it would be interesting having a more ethnic feel to them, developed the drumtrack accordingly, and merged it with some voices - done with reverb added.

I present to you, at the duration of 2:45 sec, Aztec Ambition.



this is beautiful
I love the rhythm and the sound of drums
Also the part of the violins

Where's the gold?

Dear Arbiter,

Stop writing music... that's so awesome that is. I really enjoyed this piece for many different reasons:

1) I loved the vocal choir and drum samples. Really made it feel like something from the Aztec culture, especially the background calls from the vocal part.
2) I love where song heads after 2:00. French horns and low brass seem to be your calling card, and it looks like you use them really well in this section.
3) it reminds me of treasure hunting in the first Uncharted game. That in itself says it all.

Great job! Can't wait to hear more (as always)!

Your eternally never online friend,

a little surprised...

At the beginning, it sounded like it would be a little repetitive. Like you would use the opening, and two or three more new melodies, but it surprised it tremendously. I especially loved the 1:30 part, where the strings come in. also near 2:00 ish. Beautiful peace, and i will download it without a moment's hesitation. even now, as i'm writing this, my hands are itching to play this song, and my voice is singing along with the song, having the time of it's life. Thank you :)

Hi 2devilbat : )

Reminisce of by gone era.

I'm quite surprised that such strong, vibrant ethnic song can be found on Newgrounds. Because of this, I shall scour the Classical OS'es from now on.
Best of luck and keep producing tracks such as this!

I never expected something so good and perfect from Newgrounds.

Arbiter responds:

Thank your for your praise, but be aware that there are several composers here who are more talented than myself : )
