|Return of the Mummy
"Return of the Mummy"
Instruments: Tar, Qanun, Choir, Percussion, Strings
Feel: Dark, Grooving, Mystical
Did you know that people in the 1800s used to make tea out of mummies they dug up in Egypt? Tea. Like the kind you drink. That is because people in the 1800s were dumb. They were so stupid, they thought seaweed was really quite interesting. Today, you would have to be a marine botanist to think seaweed is that exciting. I don't need to mention how "exciting" marine botanists are... Carl! Finding some Caulerpa 20 kilometers outside its published range is no reason to write a paper! And it is certainly no reason to be LATE for your OWN PARTY, CARL!!!

Well met, traveller! Come warm by my brazier... Is that a Djinn in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? Hah! I have a joke with you! ...unless it is a djinn - then you must leave immediately! ...unless that would offend the djinn - then you must stay! ...unless the djinn is going to kill me - then you must leave immediately! ...unless it will save me from a fate worse than death - then you must stay! Oh good... it was an erection. Uncompressed download comes with a faster version.

This music is the introduction to your characters entering a Middle Eastern village for the first time. The tribal drumming is all hustle and bustle, while the melody is winding, forceful, and unfamiliar.
Instruments: Plucked strings, Bow strings, Percussion
Feel: Action, Eerie, Suspenseful
Evocative of the Arab world, the music begins stoically; the melody accentuated by simple percussive sounds. Within the first minute, the strings hypnotize with their sinuous melody, the tribal drumming awakening the senses. In the third minute the piece changes to a heavy, dangerous string and tribal drumming that builds until all of the instruments come together in a fitful way, until the abrupt ending.
Instruments: Percussion, Dulcimer
Feel: Grooving, Mysterious, Relaxed
Middle Eastern atmospheric, sort of chill. This piece is easy to loop.
Instruments: Sitar synth, electronic drums and bass
Feel: Aggressive, Intense, Mystical
Harsh yet simple piece. The main theme was played with a wiimote, so don't expect too much expression! Extra interest kicks in at 1:35.
