Long ago, in a quiet valley of Maridor, a blacksmith named Hugh lived happily with his wife and daughter. One day, he received an urgent call to protect Maridor from a sudden and fearful danger. A great army from Hanidor had invaded, burning, pillaging, and killing all in their path. How did Hugh respond to the call? Where did it take him? And did he ever return home again? Here is his story.
Now unlike many stories, this one is told in the language of music. Each piece is a chapter. That is, each piece tells an important part of this story. But you must use your own wits and imagination to discover what is being told. With that, I invite you to come along on this adventure, and experience it for yourself. I hope that you enjoy it, and, in some small way, may it inspire you to answer your own call when it comes.
TRACKS – The Story
About the Composer
Daniel Alloy is an amateur composer from Omaha, NE. Through the help of an up-and-coming composer-friend, he started working with composition software in 2015. Daniel draws inspiration from cinema soundtrack composers, writing orchestral music with the feel of a movie soundtrack. Daniel tries to capture the storytelling aspect of soundtrack music and apply it to his own work. In 2017, Daniel was able to participate in an online composition class, given by Hans Zimmer, one of the most revered soundtrack composers in the film industry. Also, in 2017, he produced his first album, The Call to Arms, and is currently working on a second album, The Hearthstone Chronicles (coming soon). Daniel composes music for the glory of God and seeks to orient his musical storytelling toward Him.
