The World of Kregen Revisited
Music by Tim Jones
Inspired by the book series "The Dray Prescot Saga" author Tim Jones made this music. Let him
abduct you to the magnificent world under the two suns of Scorpio: Kregen!
Mother Zinzu The Blessed
Oar Slaves Share an Onion
The rhythm represents the drum deldar beating out the rhythm of the rowing. Now, there are two
slaves, Dray and Zorg who shared 2 onions. The lead guitar finale is meant to portray relief and
compassion, while also being tragic in view of what happened to Zorg. The two rhythms battle for
domination earlier, but always the deldar wins; the backing guitar tries to alter the beat at times
in the gaps, a sort of relief at the compassion of sharing the onion
On My Own Two Feet
The song starts with rhythm that makes you feel like there is a long ordeal ahead, but soon the mind
relaxes and gets on with this long walk. It is blues by then, designed to make the walker feel like
he is sad, yet with some determination.
The Quays Of Sanurkazz
This flamenco style music portrays the quays, with men working unloading ships and the always present
background of gulls and the heady smell of salt. The tuning is in an open G, which is also the tuning
used by the blues as the guitar was adopted by the slaves in America from the Spanish (good for
bottleneck as well). This is done on one guitar (solo), a Martin D15 acoustic, and is designed throw
some feeling of Mediterranean into the mix. White walls with red tiled roofs with terracotta pots
full of flowers and a sparkling azure sea come into mind.
Storm Over Magdag
Same music (tuning and chords) as the Sanurkazz track but designed to sound like this is the bad side
of the Eye Of The World, sinister, some weird and dangerous goings on. The storm comes and goes, and
the rhythm is faster and more daring. The lead guitar is supposed to sound sinister, a little
dangerous, a little scary.
Zorca Meadow Foals
Again a solo on Martin D15, this time completely ad-lib. This song gives the impression of a young
zorca, just born, finding his feet and taking first steps, and ultimately running. He falls, as all
foals do of course as he learns, and this is where the tempo is changing from one to another.
This is a mix of 4 things: The beat feels like 70s dance: Motownish, the lead is meant to be low yet
always around. The bass is solid and holds it together, while the rhythm represents the unsettled
part of Jilian's life. The music represents 2 sides of Jilian Sweettooth, one seeking her revenge
on Mursham, yet the other not a vengeful person at all.
Prowling Leem Blues
Star Lords Versus Savanti
This is meant to be a sort of squabble, an argument between 2 guitars that struggle to get the last
Maidens' Tears (One Glass Too
Tuned in DADGAD (one of Jimmy Page's tunings). Here we have the swod sat at a table in the inn.
He is getting more and more drunk as the piece sounds more and more drunk also. He drinks wine,
Maidens' Tears, of course, but really he is sad for his maiden who's tears he recalls before
he went away to the battle. He sits, and the guitar is him getting drunk towards the end.
Squish Pie (Stand On Your Head)
Inch, standing on his head and Dray and Seg and others of the band looking on; some laugh and some
point and some look the other way. Of course, Inch does not laugh. Here are 4 guitars all attempting
to dominate yet colliding in places. A kind of comedy.
The Clackadrin Party Trick
The start is of course the Clackadrin, all weird and frightening, and the end,
those sounds of popping corks and laughter.
