Ancestral Anthem is a big huge medley of Homestuck tunes! It loosely tells the timeline of the ancestors and the shenanigans that they went through.
The motifs used, in order--
- Darling Dolorosa + Iron Infidel
- Olive Scribe + Gold Pilot
- Jade Mother
- Indigo Heir
- Cobalt Corsair
- Violet Prince + Purple Bard
- Bronze Rebel + The Lost Child
- The Lost Child + Fuchsia Ruler
then each of the tunes of the album played in hemospectrum order, followed by a reprise of Alternia.
So all in all, it's a medley of 26 songs! It's one of the more ambitious projects I've taken in recent memory, and it took me a number of months to complete, but I had a blast doing it! I hope you guys enjoy it :smile:
I greatly enjoyed working on this piece. I'm so proud of all the work that's gone into this project and it's been an honor to participate.
