Part 3 of the 0 A.D. Music Blog in which Omri (our composer) describes how the first Persian tracks were created, and also the first generic peace track.

Alpha 8 introduced the mighty Persians! Looking to create a distinct sound, I picked up my oud, saz, acoustic bass, darbuka, djembe and bamboo shakers, and just started recording different combinations and ideas. From one session of recording my own improvisations came two new tracks: “Eastern Dreams“, and “Sands of Time“. Parts have been refined and some orchestral work was thrown in, and the unique voice of Persia was ready to go into the game! A8 also saw the addition of the first generic peace track, “The Road Ahead” – which was (deliberately) long, with several changing moods. On November 2011, I was awarded WFG’s ‘Member of the Month’, for which I am still very honored and thankful! Thanks for listening, stay tuned for more 0 A.D. music!
