Song: March of the Zargansk

Download song: mp3 MIDI

Your first question is probably “what the **** are Zargansk?”  That is a very good question, and I don’t really have a good answer, but this is what it sounds like when they march.

“March of the Zargansk” is a very bass song.  Over 90% of the song takes place below middle C.  There’s something ominous about the bass clef and I like exploiting that.  Also, MIDI instruments sound best in the low bass range because the human ear isn’t as precise at those low wavelengths – so the synthesized instruments sound more realistic than, say, a piccolo or flute in its natural range.

Were I to pick another name for this song that didn’t involve imaginary names, it would probably have something to do with “inevitability.”  This song conjures up images of something really big, really bad coming…and there’s not a thing you can do about it.  Inevitable indeed.
