This is my full-on cinematic offering of my Lord of the Rings based instrumental to put this idea to bed so I can get on with other music.
Complete with the Black Speech of Mordor ;-)

 ::OSMAN:: ::OSMAN:: ::OSMAN::

----------------------------------------------------------
Overview

This is a piece of cinematically inspired music that grew out of a 30 seconds Composer Club (Facebook) Group challenge. Our remit was to create a Leitmotif based on 'The One Ring', from The Lord of The Rings trilogy.

Being a bit of a Tolkien fan I decided to create a piece based on the actual forging of the ring of power, to try and get the sense of power, malice and a desire to dominate condensed into this small object and the overriding sorrow of the Elves when they realised just what had been created.

The Shevvanai 'Voice of the Elves' vocal library certainly came in handy :-)

After doing the initial 30 seconds I thought there was a bit more I could do with the idea so I went back to setting up the story. This involved trying to give a feeling of the Elves in Middle Earth and then I thought ... what I need is some of the Black Speech of Mordor, part of the ring rhyme to lead into the forging section. So I did my very best Dark Lord impression to utter the lines in the Black Speech of Mordor.

Ash nazg durbatulūk,
ash nazg gimbatul,
Ash nazg thrakatulūk
agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.

One Ring to to Rule Them All
One Ring to Find Them
One Ring to Bring Them All
And in the Darkness Bind Them

I must admit is the most weird thing I've ever tracked vocally ;-)

Sounds awesome. Definitely seeing Mordor before me in that peculiar imaginary landscape of Tolkien / Peter Jackson.
Can you give a link to the Facebook challenge? I'd be interested to find out more about it.

That hight Elvish singing is quite something. That's from a vocal library? Impressive for sure.

Cheers @oorlab - the challenge is in the the Facebook Group 'Composer Club'

https://www.facebook.com/groups/159825044620160/

Description
A group for Composers to share and review their work.

It's a closed group so you have to join it. It's an interesting mix of proper professional classical composers, would-be and professional cinematic writers and people like me who dabble with orchestral stuff.

The female vocals are from a VST from Eduardo Tarilonte called 'Shevannai, Voices of the Elves'. The true legato notes allow you to shape your own vowel-based phrases and also some with added consonants. So you can tailor your lines to what you need. The true legato programming allows overlapping notes to sound more natural.

Lara Ausensi is the vocalist of this library who is a Spanish Soprano / songwriter recently settled in The Netherlands.

 I've used Shevvanai before ... The intro vocal in my 'The Pilgrim's Way' for example.

A glance is awakened towards a different field
Where the danger exists behind a tree ...
Voices are not too friendly
Who can they plan to commit cruel things with the weak ...

Congratulations!!!

Very good work  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Late to this @MrBouzouki  - I listened to this before but had forgotten what a dark vocal you created for the voice of Mordor...made me jump!
I very much enjoy your orchestral works - this could be straight from those awesome Peter Jackson movies.
I`ve heard the Shevannai voices quite a bit ( used loops of them myself). You use them well.

You have achieved a totally descriptive atmosphere through the appearance of the sounds and music.
Good balance in the mix, calm and density, waiting and tension, hope in the distance, softness and sadness. The voice is a perfect complement.

Good job @MrBouzouki
