TORn Music Trivia

#4

 

Original Discussion at TheOneRing.net Forums

February 2007

Hoo boy. This week's theme is a complex one, IMO. I chose it because I thought it was one of the more interesting ones but it's not a straight forward melody that, once you have in your head, you can identify easily.

The Theme is called, "The Heroics of Aragorn". This was not a theme I picked up on my own at all. When I was updating my website, I drew from the work of other soundtrack fans who had identified "Aragorn's Theme". I had to get specific time stamps from them and listen over and over to the clips. Then, when I thought I kind of 'had it', they started calling it a Gondor Theme. HUN? It seems that, as the character of Strider/Aragorn develops, the music develops until it blends into and becomes an extension of the Gondor Theme. This blend into the Gondor Theme will be more fully discussed with the release of the Complete Recordings of the ROTK.

Why are these files zipped?

Q: The files placed on YouSendIt are zipped because this bundles them into one package. But why zip short 6-15 second long files?

A: Because then you have to download them onto your harddrive to listen. The impact on my bandwidth is the same whether you listen once, or download once. But most people want to listen more than once. If you listen more than once from my site, you drive the bandwidth usage up. If you listen more than once from your harddrive, it has no impact on my bandwidth.
