My troupe went to Titthalustuth.
This is what they have presented there:

...and it ended up with a brawl.

Enjoy!

Hey Urist McScoopbeard, it's very nice to know.

I think, I like Etnār Bakat best from this album. It is the shortest, yet somehow I feel it being the closest to dwarf spirit.

Hey! We meet again Neobit!
My turn for some feedback.

Can I just say that it warmed my heart? Very, very good feeling from the song. It's going to stick in my browser for some time and listen to it when I work!
1. Can you share more about yourself? Do you create music professionally? For how long have you been doing it?
2. Are these songs actually used by any DF Youtuber or mod maker? They should be promoted a bit more and see what the community thinks of them.

Your craftsmanship is of the highest quality!

EDIT: The songs that resonated with me so far are (in descending order):

Titthalustuth,
Em Nish Tathak,
Etnār Bakat,
Anil Bakat,
Elathu Ewĕ,
Estbehal


It's a bit strange but the start to close mid of Em Nish Tathak is in some points a bit close to my own culture's folklore musical line.

@Rust_Knight
Now I see you have written in here. You have invested some time into it, appreciated!
That is very nice to hear. This album meant to be a spectacle that happened in a fort almost two years ago. Ushrir, Vabok and Olin could have liked it if they would survive the purge (new DF version ended their universe).
Thanks for kind words :)



As for your questions:
1. I don't do it professionally. This is one of my non-profit activities.
   It started in 2004 as a joke and now I am trying to complete couple of albums/projects a year. On soundcloud I have published over 70 tracks of them. Yet, they are rather distant from this album in terms of genre (most of them are electronic or ambient).
2. I sometimes use them in my youtube/twitch streams but it is very niche, though.
  Some of my music I have done for that purpose only, to have some more background music for the games I stream (like Cataclysm Dark days Ahead, Kenshi and of course Dwarf Fortress).


p.s. I have pretty similar list of favs for that album :)
I think Em Nish Tathak has Caucasus vibe. But probably could have been portrayed in Balkans as well. Am I very far?
