Alpha 10 came around in a particularly busy time of my career, and therefor didn't include a lot of new music.
It did however, include “You are Victorious!”, the first victory track in the game (and a polite nod to AoE!).
My dedication to 0 A.D. compelled me to make time to create at least one more new track for this land mark alpha...
So I called a friend and asked him if he can come record some Greek bouzouki tracks for the Hellenic tribes.
Alas, he was too busy - but allowed me to borrow his bouzouki and have a go at it myself... until that point I have never played a bouzouki.
Still, somehow my first improvisation session yielded one of my favorite 0 A.D. tracks yet - "In the Shadow of Olympus", based entirely on the bouzouki.
I had since fallen in love with the instrument, and purchased one of my own on eBay - it will be used many more times with relation to the Hellenic tribes, as well as other Hellenic sub factions.
Thanks for listening, stay tuned for more 0 A.D. music!
