From the torch-lit dungeons dank with fungus to the tops of the pine forests blowing a gust of pollen, tell me your story, adventurer. What was the beast you slew that night out in the vast dunes? Did you really survive through the aboleth’s abyssal plane? How many apparitions approached you while in the moor? Were you revived from death while crossing the mountains? Tell me about your cursed sword.
Give me a song that illustrates a fantasy event, setting, or character using the surplus of audio recordings below.
You are not required nor expected to download all of these field recordings, but rather choose your arsenal & roll with it.
To not feel overwhelmed, start with the 15 recordings from 2010 (7z compression): https://mega.nz/#!yiojTK7T!jq5JkM2uOybV7ydZbSLZe3rF3ax3Vq_7JquGXMC-aN8
If you want more as I hope you will use, the entire folder is:

I own all these samples & declare them free (as in beer) to use & free (as in Stallman) to manipulate. I hope your usage of them does not end with this thread.
- include a 2nd form of media that illustrates your music (e.g. paragraph story, poem, image)
- while synthetic sounds are fine (this is IDMF after all), keep it grounded & earthy sounding (eg something one would hear off a fantasy movie/videogame OST)
- avoid inhibition. I want you to be satisfied with your tune & will help you out with any means I have.

Lastly, surfing through Amazon, I’d like to grant the winner a prize for their efforts. For those of you who don’t have a recorder, once you get in the mindset, you start hearing your world in completely different ways.
I apologize if I’ve set anything up incorrectly. This is my 1st time hosting a BB after all. Submit all corrections below.
