This was for the 2013 NGMT's third round with the theme of an underground civilization. And I won second place overall in the triathlon, which is...yay!

So, a lot of it speaks for itself; a very literal audio journey. The above world has already experienced an apocalypse and is in the middle of reconstruction. The explorer in this story stumbles upon a secret that was once hidden by the government and is confused when confronted with two contrasting messages: the government's stale introduction to the society and the indigenous man's cheery greeting. The ending is kinda left at the explorer is then escorted by the indigenous man into the city to be shown around...and it's also an open listen into the actual music hahahaha...awkward...

I even made up a translation to the gibberish language I'm singing, which reflects the irony behind the slightly more welcoming message the government makes which sounds dull and flat, while the man's introduction sounds happy and upbeat but is actually an unwelcoming warning.

Lyrics:

Tilhing, sil mappab bim aakuwaki,
Bim Berugmi, mappab sil takil.
Sebsungi, sil mappab bim kilkuwaki,
Tilhing ba mimbhe kamkuilwa.

Malsing nboo, mappab bim aakukil.
Malsing nboo, bim takilkuwaki.
Bim Berugmi sil bim kilhakil,
Tilhing, ba mimbhe nboo.

Kilsig sil mappab bim aakuwaki.
Sebsungi, sil mabbab bim takil.
Kalsig ba mappab bim kilkuwaki,
Tilhing, sil ba kamkuilwa.

Malsing nboo, mappab bim aakukil.
Malsing nboo, bim takilkuwaki.
Bim Berugmi sil bim kilhakil,
Tilhing, ba mimbhe nboo.

Translation:

You, who has arrived to us,
We are Welcoming, for your comfort.
However, you are not our God,
You are only a visitor.

All day, we scavenge.
Every day, we worship.
We are Welcoming for each other,
For you, only a day.

An imp has arrived to us.
We will not, accommodate your comfort.
Our truth is our God,
And you, are a visitor.

All day, we scavenge.
Every day, we worship.
We are Welcoming for each other,
For you, only a day.

Like the other guy said: it takes a lot of creativity to make something like this. It certainly does what it sets out to do. How the hell did you make it all sound happy and miserable at the same damn time?!?
