Back in the day, Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings was the single greatest experience on the planet for a 10 year old (and probably most of the population older than that). In reverence, honor, and for the fun of it, I’ve decided to start remastering the tracks with some of the new instruments I have (and lots of the old ones).
While the game itself is legendary and wonderful and the soundtrack is excellent, the naming conventions on said soundtrack are not. While there technically are names, most of them are inside jokes to the composers/developers. On top of that, the music in the song is just one giant 40 minute mp3 file.
So I’ve done my darndest and have named the first piece… Final Track! Because… it is the final track on the 40 minute mp3 file. Get it?
I guess I’m starting to get the hang of it again. The last time I wrote something anywhere near this complete was over a year ago. If/when I think of more to add, I’ll do it (I understand it doesn’t quite resolve itself at this point). The thing sounds like it wants some lyrics.
It is a contemporary, semi-pop, semi-rock piece. Pretty up-beat, pretty fast, and nothing too crazy going on. But, I kind of like it and felt like it was worth sharing.
