One of the main characteristic of Mongolian music is khoomei, or throat-singing, which really wouldn't sound right if generated synthetically and would just sound horribly fake, so I sampled a small portion of the singing from an old classical Mongolian orchestra.

To complement the urtyn duu, or "long song" style of singing, the track was made to be slow and also to give a feeling of Mongolia's vast and varied plains. In fact, the track is named after the song style.

Morin khuur, the horse-headed fiddle, was also used as was other instruments which sounded most close to traditional native Mongolian instruments, like the flute.

Scale: C D# F G G# A#

Considering I did follow some Mongolian music videos over on YT, you've replicated it pretty well. I'm not sure about the dissonance and the awkward change of keys sometimes, but the part around 2:52 just spoke to me.

Otherwise, the instrumentation is beautiful. <3 All the best for the RAC!

Thanks, Trois! The dissonance was a slight problem when making the song but then again it does give a feeling it's being performed by a real-life orchestra. The key changes...I'll need to learn more I guess. ^^
