In the game of Dwarf Fortress, characters sometimes perform music that is supposed to be in specific forms procedurally generated to match their in-game culture and background. This track is one of my attempts at writing real-life music to match a description from the game. It is an example of the Tressed Silk, a form of music used for entertainment originating in the Towers of Gladness (a dwarven civilization); performed on two ogons and a zarut, which are respectively similar to our world's bagpipes and a reed organ, all simulated with North Coast Synthesis Eurorack modules.
Sheet music is available (PDF file). There's also a Web log entry that discusses this piece in more detail.
