In Search of the Lost Tribes - remix
      #995075 - 27/06/12 10:51 PM
I first composed this about 4 years ago, but was far from happy with it, both from the point of view of the instrumentation as well as the production, so I've given it a rather thorough make-over.

I'd be very grateful for comments and/or suggestions.

Ogg Vorbis or mp3

P.S.
Obligatory blurb

"The travelers return to find their homes empty, with not a sign of their families and friends visible in the ruins of their village, nor the neighbouring villages. Indeed, even the great city is deserted and starting to decay, but there they find a clue.

A city scribe has left a tantalising scrap of paper that notes all must leave. There are details how, but no explanation of why, nor where the tribes will go.

The travelers rest for a few days while they consider their options, then with heavy hearts begin their search, having no idea of when or whether they will be reunited with their loved ones."

What a colourful write-up! Nice melody. I found the bass a little distracting - I think I'd prefer something less busy with more sustain. Stay focussed on melody and harmony, and resist the urge to noodle on those pan-pipes.

Thank you for listening.
That's a good call on the bass. I hadn't realised how intrusive it was until you mentioned it. I'll have another look at those noodles too
