What would exploring endless expanses of desert wasteland be like without some sort of musical accompaniment? Boring, that's what. This is a score created for anyone who has ever been curious about ancient ruins, crumbling pyramids, and the dark secrets hidden beneath the wind-swept dunes.

I love composing different types of music, and this one has long been a personal favorite. I hope that you enjoy it, too.

persian techno... nice

only thing i can say is that the horn sounds like its coming from a different room, clear that issue and one may just invent perfection

ChronoNomad responds:

Yeah, the Persian Techno aspect does seem to go over well with folks! :D

I'm not really sure what to say about the sound complaint...mainly because I didn't actually use any horn or brass instruments. There's flute, various strings, a healthy dose of choir, some harp near the end, and even some organ thrown in for good measure.

Loved It

Techno with an Arabic-style twist. Excellent choice.

ChronoNomad responds:

You know it! I've always thought that this would have been pretty awesome in a game like Prince of Persia or something with a similar vibe. Hey, it just may happen. Thanks for reviewing!


The song has some good votes, yet there's no reviews. This song is super good! It sounds like an Egyptian desert with techno music in it! I'm currently doing a project that will take place in the desert, and this song will be perfect!

ChronoNomad responds:

There is one now, and it's all because of you. Thanks for the great feedback! I've always liked the cool Egyptian/Techno vibe of this one, too. :)

Incidentally, I would be honored to have you use this in your project. ^_^
