    Default EB Music Announcement: Prehistoric Music Ireland



    Prehistoric Ireland Music (at prehistoricmusic.com)

    You can find their CD's at these links. If you like the samples there please support them! (and tell them where you heard about their work too):

    Other links mentioned above include:
    Audio Samples of Prehistoric Music Ireland
    Simon's book, Prehistoric Music of Ireland

    And since we are talking about our music, don't forget about Morgan Casey and Nick Wylie, who created and performed the absolutely amazing soundtrack you hear now every time you load up EB! We still get chills hearing that horn when the menu screen comes into view.

    (Note: If you are having trouble seeing the image above with the announcement in it, try this backup announcement image.)

    I remember testing the music in-game to see if it fit... and boy it gave me goosebumps!

    It is a wonderfull thing when different mediums with the same historical aim "to re-present history to a modern audience" can come together in such a way-- and so seemlessly, too. Thanks again to the O'Dwyers for letting us use their fantastic music in the mod.

    Oh and thanks also to TA for making this happen... great job!

    Heh I'm going to be the first to use the appropriate smiley!

    You said it Caratacos! Thank you

    This unique music really gets me into a "tribal" mood, authentically to the roots and the past... I can't wait to start a campaign and warp

    Yes, they will be in the next release.

    Not sure why you couldn't hear the samples - they are just in direct mp3 format. They should play straight through your browser or at the least if you save them to your desktop and then listen to them from that. Make sure you are clicking on the cover of the CD and not the text title of the song (on their "Sounds" page).

    Excellent news indeed! Back in vanilla, I wouldn't touch a barbarian faction with a 10-yard pole, but EB is making it impossible to resist!

    Great work guys on the EB team, and thanks a million for letting EB use your music O'Dwyer!

    Great news for me, but what about Morgan Casey and Nick Wylie? Will we hear more from them? I don't know how exactly professionals are they, but they made stunning work in my opinion. Semitic Battle Theme is over the top.

    Maybe it's because EB is such an excellent example of sincere care and commitment, in what their trying to achieve, that various artists are willing to add to it with their talent.
    Anyway we are very lucky indeed to garnish such support, with everything that's going into the next build, it should be a treat indeed(when did you say it's being released )

    This stuff is great! I listened to some songs from the Kilmartin CD and while the Bird calls weren't much to write home about the chanting, flutes, and of course the Horns were some creepiest stuff I've ever heard.And the one track called Bronze Age March almost had me screaming "BASBH BASBH BASBH! ADU ADU ADU!!!" Definitely worth being put into EB! Now if only we can get in touch with Melpomen.....

    Glad you guys are looking forward to it!
    No release date yet Digby - you know better than that.

    Morgan and Nick are working on different projects now Praxil - Morgan is doing the music for The Lordz Gaming Studio's Napoleonic era game, so check their forum out to see what she's up to lately. Not sure what Nick has been doing most recently. We really couldn't possibly ask for any further material from them - it's something like 28 pieces total that they did with us spread out over all of our culture groups (between the main title, culture themes, mobilization and battle themes, victory and defeat ones), and we are thrilled to have them and won't be replacing any of them at all certainly.

    Good news indeed. The music's great, can easily imagine marching my Celtic troops over the hills to this!

    I'm just curious as to how you will integrate the new music with the old music: surely a Casse/whatever army can only fight a battle with either Piece A or Piece B playing? Or will you make it a 50% chance each time? Or will fighting in different areas mean different pieces?

    Also, what are your plans for new music for the new factions that you will have in EB2? Or will the existing music simply be integrated into the new factions' campaigns?

    Cheers!

    wow this is weird...prehistoric music (before writing) of Ireland being the same as Bronze Age Irish music (thousands of years later)...

    It sounds weird... Sorry, but I can't see myself enduring 12 hours of this every day, it is quite jarring on the ears in the long run. Atmospheric, but it can get too atmospheric. I played the Sweboz and had to quit after four hours... I preferred the original barbarian music. More cliched, but perfectly melodious. Otherwise, we'd have to apply authentic Greek music to the Greeks, gods forbid.

    I personally like the new music, sounds like some kind of music you'd hear in the Austrailian outback

    It's pretty cool.

    Listen to any serious reproductions of period celtic music (virtually none exist - but you can hear other artists on the Kilmartin Sessions) and you'll find this is what you would expect to hear from period instruments given what we know from archaeology and other cultures' use of similar instruements. We are thrilled to be able to bring a little edumakashun to you guys on these topics.

    Oh, p.s.: we got some other great news on the music front today - in due time there will be another announcement.

    PreCISEly. It sounds aboriginal. But we're in Europe... And anyhow, it's cool, but not meant for long-haul listening, y'know? Not exactly easy listening music, that's the problem... It's historically interesting, but ergonomically inconducive to EBbing...

    But yup, learning about new cultures and stuff is always pleasurable. ^_^

    I would just like to add my personal thanks to EB and Prehistoric Music Ireland for the inclusion of this new music in 1.0, the greater variety of music greatly extends my campaigning session time. Also I pray this secret information TA is being cryptic about is more music, maybe roman or greek??? But for now my ears are more then satisfied with the present treat they have been given.

    BTW, the selections chosen were the ones thought to be most conducive to the "EB" environment.

    I agree that the Irish music doesn't really qualify as music. It's not exactly U2, but it gives an awesome atmosphere. When you're under pressure and that strange humming noise kicks in, it's perfect.

    Well the music in the game is good, it takes a LIL' getting used to it though. However, at least in my gallic campain, the old music will come in every now and..... a good while later.
