Back in college, I wrote a diddy. I was exploring some mathematical ideas in composition, and drafted something up on the idea of "what if a motif was established, but grew in length every time it was played?" In other words, what if a melody could be built off of 5 notes, then 6, then 7, then 8, then 9, and so on? From that I crafted a track that I've always liked, but never really showed anyone.
The intro theme for MazeQuest 2 was built off of the same idea. Here, the shifting ascending/descending bits grow, elongate, and then start over again. The result is a piece in a rather odd time signature, with an unsettling ominousness. Setting the tone for a King getting kidnapped, it did the trick.
Instrumentally, this piece fuses pan flutes, Apache shakers, bass harmonics, and a lot of low string.
