The Desert

Story Behind The Song

Being an Arizona resident for most of my life, I've spent a lot of time in the desert. I wanted to write a piece to capture the feeling of the harshness and beauty of the desert, but add an element of excitement also. To combine these elements I came up with this piece, where it opens as a stark, atmospheric soundscape but then moves into a groove-oriented action piece. If there were an action-movie made in the Arizona desert, this might make a good track for the opening scene as they endure the desert heat, then get chased by bad guys.

Song Description

Soundscape depicting the feeling of being stranded in a hot barren desert, evolving into an action higher-energy groove.

Song Length 2:57 Genre Unique - Soundtracks
Mood Distressed, Restless

All I can say is wow. The dobro, acoustic guitar, and any other awesome instruments I missed all sound superb. This is some truly professional work and everything is recorded at top quality and is well mixed/mastered. This has great potential to be used in all sorts of TV scenes, I mean you've already got my imagination running wild.

Wow! This really rocks in a wild West sort of way. This really would be wonderful with a Western movie.

I love this piece. Great work!

Beautiful piece - thrilling & mysterious.
