At last boys and girls. I am so relieved to have this tune in a finished state. Those of you who have read the blog in the last couple of weeks know what I’m talking about. Also the idea to do a zombie tune was really hard.
A monster-tune is easy to do. Just add a church-organ, grunting, bats flapping, girls scream and there you go: a monster-mash!
But a Zombie-tune is something else. Your average zombie has a very limited vocabulary; ‘braaaaiiighnnss!’ And most zombie flicks I watched were musically -to say it gently-: disappointing.
For this tune I didn’t have much reference to get inspiration (apart from Len’s Zombie art). In the end I went for a Philicorda organ, a Ukelele, and a marimba. Together that makes this a very sunny ‘march of the zombies’. Thanks Len for the inspiration and idea.
