For RAC 07. Iran entry.

Since too many people go for traditional music, I decide to do something on the common ground.

I use time signature 5/4 for the action theme. Persian scale is heavily used, although I added other half tone notes. Sasaniyan is stood for the Sassanid Army, the Persian fearless warriors.

Traditional instrument used: tar, santur, tanbur & ney.
Portamento was used for most of the string instruments. They are just normal solo violin/cello.

Tracked in ModPlug.
Instruments from SIDizer, EastWest Stormdrum 2, RA & Symphonic Orchestra

Amazing! It sounds progressive and is so pretty! I like also the persian style and the acoustic sounds in this techno. Man, you are amazing ;)

the first part is slow, however it gets more amazing near the middle and ending.

Danke

Sounds great. Coincidentally two weeks ago I made a 5/4 song with Persian scale. What are the odds? (I know you made this earlier, but I only heard it just now) Very unusual music. I like that. The instruments sound very good. The synthetic and acoustic sounds blend well. Maybe the electronic instruments are a bit too clean and inorganic for my taste. I didn't like the kick when it first kicked in. But when you know where the song is going it isn't so bad. I'm glad it never turns into a pop song. Not too fond of Iranian pop songs. It's very dark, cinematic and nice. Just the way I like it. Good job.

Thank you for the detail response, SourJovis. :) I should go to check out your songs too.

Really love how you blended techno with traditional music in this.

Wurfel-Waffles responds:

Thanks for the comment, JJM121.

Dude... sounds like "Pince of Persia" battle theme... which is not a bad thing.. I totally loved the fact you used persian scales.. like WingoWiston mentioned earlier. It's a very risky step.. you used "persian string" for the melody... Loved it.! Spot on! 4/5

Wurfel-Waffles responds:

Thanks.
