Zombies are one of my favorite villains - fearless, innumerable, and completely unfeeling.

Much of my music stems from my writing. I was writing a novella involving zombies set in the 1930's and wanted to compose a soundtrack piece using only instruments available in that time period. Normally, my music is composed of many layers of natural and synthesized instruments and percussion.

For this song - as a challenge to myself - I limited myself to two cellos and a single vintage drum soundset. I wanted to see if I could create a piece that evoked both the horror and inevitability of zombies with only three actual layers of instrumentation.

I leave it up to you to decide if the challenge resulted in success....


Instrumental | They march... and they hunger....
