Hey all- I’m looking for a piece of music, and I figure here’s the best place to ask.
I need a theme song. Yes, you heard me.
I know that this is silly, but try to keep an open mind. As I’m sure everyone knows by now, my wife and I do some medieval re-enactment. Part of our hobby is combat tournaments, in which I participate.
This year, the big local event is doing something a little different, in the spirit of fun. In an effort to do something a bit more exciting, we’re loosening some of the ‘period’ strictures and holding a more ‘modern’ contest.
The site has an outdoor boxing arena, and we’re going to use it at night for ‘Friday Night Fights.’ It will be a mixture of gladitorial contests, the WWF, and a Knight’s Tale. It will be held by torchlight. The overall atmosphere is going to be like Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Between bouts, we’ll have women belly dancing, sword juggling, etc.
I’m wiring the place for sound. Each fighter is allowed to pick theme music for their entrance. The only restriction is that it not be totally modern (‘Iron Man’ in a no-no, as is ‘Seven Nation Army’…I’ve asked).
So I’m looking for something done by a symphony, or on classical instruments. It doesn’t have to be totally instrumental - an opera would work as well. But it needs to have percussion, and I need a good 20 second piece that will work for buildup and entrance.
So, what do you think?
