Cue of the Week: “Beyond the Walls”
Here’s the fourth atmospheric piece I wrote for Green Ronin’s post-apocalypse D&D scenario, The Lost Citadel. (As with the others, delivered via Syrinscape’s cool gaming audio system.) This music accompanies players as they explore the desolate lands outside the city, populated by armies of the dead.
At the opening, I used a mournful english horn solo to evoke the lonely landscape (I may have taken some inspiration from Berlioz here). The music turns more militant towards the end, evoking the undead armies on the march. Or at least on the lumber.
