TUNE Pixeltruppen - Rohan
This track began with the lyrics -- a short extract from a 10th-century Old English poem called "The Wanderer". This poem -- composed in the archaic Anglo-Saxon language -- describes the meditations & thoughts of a solitary traveller, forever wandering to escape trouble.
Tolkien was an expert in archaic languages and used Anglo-Saxon poems, riddles & customs as the cultural background of "Rohan" in his "Lord of the Rings" fantasy.
Karsten processed the original spoken-word vocal audio, and also some electric guitar audio (played with an Ebow), and backing vocals by Anis. He then added beats, synths & effects. In this way we made a modern "Tolkien" groove with a 10th-century lyric. We hope you will enjoy the result!
