Music by Gary P. Gilroy, Shawn Glyde, Nate Bourg


Grade: 3
Performance Time: 6:10

Capture all the exquisitely exotic sights and sounds that crop up in the Arabian deserts, oases, mirages and cities of danger and intrigue. The rhythmic pulse of the environment will keep your audience locked in the grip of the traders and mystics who ply their trade. Creative use of ethnic sound effects and instruments woven throughout the score like a Persian carpet make this identifiable from the first note.
