The music in the town in this game really grates on my ears with how harsh and high-pitched it is. Sensory hell doesn't even begin to describe it, which is a shame because the rest of the game is so good. Long-time users of this forum surely remember my past (albeit half-assed) modding efforts.

So, I had an idea for a music mod for the game, and no, it doesn't involve changing the instruments and lowering the town's music by several octaves this time. I still don't have any musical talents, but I could instead find mid files on the internet and replace Mordor's already existing soundtrack.

I think a revolutionary theme would be nice, and it would work well with the Revolutionary Challenge I have going right now. The Internationale would be perfect for the main menu, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or suggestions for the other tracks. unsure.gif

For some good reading, if you'd like to participate, or simply to pass the time, be sure to check out my challenge threads.

Can't wait to start a Mordor XP challenge.

One thing to say in favor of the town music (aesthetics aside) is that is has a 5/4 meter, something quite rarely seen in most music, let alone in an obscure indie video game. I'll indulge myself by dropping a little musical knowledge - here's a modern classical piece in 5/4 by Steve Reich with similar energy (or you might say stridency): Eight Lines (Octet).

Can't go wrong with the Internationale, tho. wink.gif

I would have started with lasers. Eight o'clock. Day one.
