Hi Jason! Cool

I have a question.
Last week I downloaded the mp3 music which call Brood War Intro.
Was ,,Brood War Intro'' music created to the Star Craft game from Blizzard or is it just a music from (some concert) which was added to the game but not created from the Blizzard? :?

Bye Jason Hayes and have a nice day! Cheesy

The Brood War Intro music was a collaboration between Glenn Stafford and me. He wrote this great operatic song, and we used it in the movie as "source" music- meaning it is actually supposed to be playing on the record player in the room with Alexei Stukov and Admiral Dugalle. Toward the end of their scene together, my musical scoring comes in as you pan out on this scene and return to the battlefield to see the Terrans being abandoned by the supposed "air support" and overrun by the Zerg.

When I came in with the score, I intentionally made the first note happen at the same moment as the last note of Glenn's song, turning his very nice resolution into a slightly unsettling one, and a foreboding of tragedy.

When I'm doing choral music, the lyrics are usually in Latin, or something that approximates Latin. But in this case, the final scene of the movie has the choir singing in French. It seemed like it would be cool to do this, because Admiral Dugalle has a very European feel to his character, and could possibly be from France. The lyrics are ironic, considering the situation the Terrans find themselves in:

(translated into English from French)

Don't be afraid
Of suffering
The future
Awaits us

The soldiers will return!
They will arrive victoriously!
Give everything for honor!

Taling about starcraft. There's a small hint towards starcraft in the WoW song 'Song Of Elune'. Think that part is really neat since it has the Dune (original movie) mood, one of my fav scifi classics Smiley

Did you do this with some goal or was it just fun to link those two? :roll:

Great observation!

The musical hint to which you're referring- that short vamp before the string melody- is intentional. I did it as a kind of subtle musical "Easter Egg" to tie the Blizzard game worlds together. I love little signature elements, and I thought having a little something that could signify a general "Blizzard Drama Motif" would be a fun musical secret to hide in there.

If I work on another Diablo title at some point, I'm sure I'll try and find some way to make a reference to it there as well, although it may be pretty obscure Smiley

Hehe neat Smiley I know such things don't get into songs 'by accident' so it was more of a rethorical question hehe. I thought it was indeed pretty cool to see both worlds coming together.

Another diablo title eh? *rolls eyes*. I guess that'll be hint hint? Wink
jk, no need to answer that one hehe

Sure! Here is that same part as it is sung in French. Please forgive my spelling or conjugations if they're not correct Smiley

Alriiiiiiiiiiight! Now the whole thing makes even more sense!

Hope you experiment more on these grounds for that album of original music!

Hi,
The broodwar intro is really cool, how about the latin part of the lyrics?
If I heard it well it starts with the latin saying "morituri te salutant!",but how does it continue?Would you be so kind and tell us the rest of the lyrics,as you did with the French part?
Thanks in advance!

Very good indeed.

I have been listening to the broodwar intro music while reading the lyrics provided

N'Ayez pas peur
De soufrir
Le futur
Nous attend

Les soldats reviendront!
Arriveront victorieux!
Donnez tout pour l'honneur!

However, it sounds like they say something after "nous attend"

And yes, having the first part of the intro, the "morituri te salutant..." would be very helpful.

Great song, great music, well done!
