Music and the Empires

Post by The Clans on Sun May 08, 2016 8:53 pm

We know a bit about each others' empires. The culture, the characters, but what music defines it? This is a tradition of mine going back to when I first started RPing where whoever wants to can post links to music that either define their characters or something about them. In this circumstance, the empire counts too.

I have three songs for the Yuxu, all of them made by Ireland's own Miracle of Sound.

First, two songs for the ADC's matriarch, Mysha.
Road Rage
A song in tribute to Mad Max: Fury Road. This is undeniably Mysha's theme, more particularly when she was still a warlord bent on unification. It's ironic that the song is meant for Furiosa, when Mysha is more like Immortan Joe.

Voice of a New Age
The next is a song that I can actually imagine her listening to to get pumped while driving.

Man and Machine
Lastly we have a song that is scarily tailor made for the ADC's military. Someone in the comments pointed out that it sounded like a TV show intro, so after I listened a few times my mind started to wander and I've come up with a military promotion video, which I will go through almost lyric by lyric.

Mind
(A brain pulses with dull light)
From the circuits of man
(It pulses again more brightly and vividly with each neuron connection brightly lit)
Aspire to break and to batter
Force
(The screen cuts away. The top half shows Yuxu ships in space, the bottom half a variety of savage looking wheeled and repulsorlift vehicles before the screen darkens.)
Experience
(The screen brightens back up, the top half now occupied by a few grim faced admirals above a tide of naval personnel. Mirroring the top half, the bottom is prominently occupied by three grim generals with army officers and soldiers beneath them.)
Hardwired to shake and to shatter
(A roaring ship engine takes up the entire view shortly before the ship slams and breaks through an unidentified craft.)

Onto the burning frontiers now deploy
(A fleet of ships zooms from a space station.)
Titans of industry build to destroy
(Full view of drydocks on a station working on half finished ships.)

Bring on the burn!!
(Ship guns fire large slugs that slam into the side of another ship.)
Bring on the burn!!
(A squadron of bombers fire their payload at the same ship.)
Brace and return!!
(The bombers bank to the right as their bombs flash across the surface of the ship.)

Bring on the burn!!
(Assault boats dock in airlocks and exposed holes in the ship.)
Bring on the burn!!
(Marines in sealed suits pour from the assault boats into the interior.)
Brace and return!!
(The marines spill back onto their craft as a fresh salvo of slugs send shrapnel flying.)

The synergy of man and machine
(Zoomed in on a pilot's covered face in a flight suit, gradually zoom out to show the interior of the cockpit.)
The symmetry and connections between
The power and the pace
To dominate your space

(An abstracted naval simulation of a solar system shows several squadrons of triangles in ADC colors wipe out oppositely colored triangles as they move toward a planet.)
Get out and wipe your rivalries clean
(Several clan banners are ripped asunder in rapid succession by claw marks)
Through man and machine

Speed
And nimble stride

(A fast wheeled vehicle speeds by on a dusty road followed by a slower banking repulsorlift tank.)
Burning blur of the acceleration
Brawn
(An arm bulging with muscles rests on the top of a vehicle door with the window rolled down while it speeds.)
And hardened hide
(The camera cuts away to show more of the driver's body, the angle of the shot putting emphasis on the driver's scars.)
Brute force complete domination
(The camera cuts, showing the same driver leap from his moving vehicle as it's destroyed only to grab an alien soldier's helmeted head and crush it into the ground as they both fall.)

And through the smoke of contention of they roam
(Several troop transports navigate a bombed out battlefield)
And now they’re bringing the future back home
(A quick slideshow of recovered alien tech and artifacts and laboratory shots.)

Bring on the burn!!
Bring on the burn!!

Heavily armored vehicles fire a multitude of shells and let out great gouts of plasma.)
Brace and return!!
(They pull back as several of their own vehicles erupt from returning fire.)

Bring on the burn!!
Bring on the burn!!
Brace and return!!

(Soldiers leap onto a high speed train from the back of an open transport and throw crates as well as civilians back onto their transport before jumping back.)

The synergy of man and machine
The symmetry and connections between
The power and the pace

(Troops loaded in drop pods plummet to a planet's surface)
To dominate your space
(Several species of aliens sit in chains in makeshift corrals dominated by ADC banners while assault landers land in the background.)
Get out and wipe your rivalries clean
Through man and machine

(The banner ripping repeats itself.)

Bring on the burn!!
Bring on the burn!!
Brace and return!!

(Scenes from both the Navy and land army sections replay over again.)

Replying just a tad bit late. tongue

As for the Kha'ni and their Empire when they are peaceful,



As for the Kha'ni and their Empire when thy are not so,



Characters...

...I might be here all day but for Sra'ni Protector,



Fits his life best...
