  1. I was deeply moved by Dalinar's pivotal moment in Oathbringer; this song is the result. Enjoy!
  2. Hello friends! Here’s my cosmere artwork. My dream is that Brandon will hear these haha. I’m new to the 17th shard, hopefully there are others here who can appreciate what I’ve done here. I love TSA, these songs are sort of Pop/electro Music I made while rereading tWoK. All original lyrics and music. I put a lot of work into them, what’s your favorite of the three? If people like em I wanna do more let me know.
  3. This is just something fun I thought I'd throw together, but I thought people might find it interesting (or amusing). I was thinking about songs that I think fit well with various Cosmere works, and since a lot of them fit with Mistborn, I thought I'd do a brief writeup focusing on songs most people have probably heard of - namely, Disney movie songs. For this list, I'l go through each song, roughly in the order I think they fit in the books, and provide a link and a brief blurb as to why I chose them. A couple of notes - one, this is mostly going to be for Final Empire and a few for Well of Ascension for various reasons, but mostly because they were my first two Brandon books and I found them easiest to make connections for. For another, I'm including some songs from The Prince of Egypt as well, even though that one's not technically Disney, because a)., it's the same style of animated musical extravaganza, b)., most of the songs fit too well with Scadrial and the Final Empire to ignore, and c)., Prince of Egypt is awesome anyway, and so is its music. With that out of the way, away we go! Final Empire “Deliver Us” – Prince of Egypt A perfect scene-setting for Scadrial under the Lord Ruler's dominion. “Strangers Like Me” - Tarzan Vin is introduced to and intrigued by Kelsier and his crew. “Through Heaven’s Eyes” – Prince of Egypt Sazed teaches Vin and helps her find her confidence and her place in the world. “Make a Man out of You” – Mulan Or make an allomancer out of you, rather:). Kelsier trains Vin in the use of her powers. “Let it Go” – Frozen Vin, gaining confidence, begins to open up and take pride and joy in her abilities. “Part of Your World” and “Part of Your World Reprise” – The Little Mermaid Attending her first balls, Vin becomes increasingly fascinated with the world of the nobility, and with Elend. “Playing with the Big Boys” – Prince of Egypt Vin and Kelsier fight the Inquisitors at Kredik Shaw, barely escaping with their lives. “Reflection” – Mulan Caught between her dual life as Vin the mistborn and Valette the noblewoman, Vin questions her identity. “All I Ever Wanted” – Prince of Egypt Elend becomes increasingly dissatisfied with the state of the Final Empire and realizes that he is on a different path from what his father expects of him. “God Help the Outcasts” – Hunchback of Notre Dame Vin and Kelsier visit the skaa tenements. “He Lives in You” – Lion King II The anthem of the fledgling Church of the Survivor after Kelsier's martyrdom. “When You Believe” – Prince of Egypt The rebellion triumphs after Vin kills the Lord Ruler. Well of Ascension "Into the Unknown" - Frozen II Vin becomes increasingly preoccupied with the call of the Well. “Be Prepared” – Lion King A paean to Straff's ambitions to seize control of Luthadel and become a new emperor. Also a better song than Straff (my personal most hated Cosmere character) deserves, but hey, it fits. “Hellfire” – Hunchback of Notre Dame Zane's destructive obsession with Vin grows. "Not One of Us" - Lion King II After the attempted assassination and her assault on Cett's keep, Vin fears the crew - and Elend - will reject her. "Love Will Find a Way" - Lion King II Vin and Elend reconcile after Zane dies and are married. "Savages” – Pocahontas The battle for Luthadel, culminating in Vin's return. That's what I have. Anyone else have thoughts? Or ideas for Hero of Ages or Era 2?
  4. So I was listening to the Wind's Pleasure by @Spock and I was like "Whoa! This is awesome!" And it sparked an idea. Well, I say it's an idea, but it's not exactly original. Can we just make some music for the Cosmere? If we aren't getting cinematics then can we get audiomatics (dunno if that's a word)? If you know me, you know that I love to organize stuff like this. If you have something musical to post, do it in this format: Name of Score OR (if you don't have a name) Just say "Suggestions?" Name of Book that the music is from (If you're not sure what book it's from, then just say "TBD") Link or File Download for music. Feel free to just copy and paste the URL or insert a link into smaller text. An (optional) short description. Spoilers are allowed! If you don't have something musical to post, then try to keep the discussion (obviously) on-topic. If you have critiques or comments, be sure not to be mean. Saying "this bit needs work" is fine, but saying "this song sucks" isn't. That being said, go forth, musicians, in the memory of Hoid's flute!
  5. The idea is pretty simple, you post a video link for a song along with the song's title and the next person posts a video link for a song that shares one or more words of the song title. And it keeps going in a neverending chain. Fun stuff! Here's an example Weight of Lies (by the Avrett Brothers, thanks for the recommendation @Truthless of Shinovar, they're great) And following that Weightless Again (by the Handsome Family) Just to make this more eclectic homonyms count too (so you could post the video for Waiting For the Bus by the Violent Femmes after Weightless Again)

    A few years back I wrote a song about our favorite bridgecrew called Bridge Four.

  7. Hey all, I've been trying to write some music and I just don't know...any advice???
  8. So some late night Cosmere reddit browsing found a thread which had Crazy Train playing during Kaladin and Adolin's duel in WoR. That got me thinking: which well known music can you imagine playing in pivotal scenes in the Cosmere? Personally, I can imagine Forge (especially 3:05 onwards) or Portals during Bridge 4's rescue of the Kholin army in WoK. Let's me honest, Kaladin's Stormlight blast landing is the equivalent of Thor's Bifrost entrance. I guess this could apply to any genre, but I really like the approach of A Knight's Tale, which used modern rock music to illustrate how people would have felt about their music back in the Middle Ages.
  9. Hello everyone Using my furlough time wisely, I felt compelled by a question from the lovely people at r/cosmere on Reddit. ‘What music do you read the books to?’ My response was to write and record an imaginary soundtrack to the first trilogy. I’m unable to link as a new me ever to the group but you will find the album on most music sites - search for ‘Zavodila The Mistborn Suite’ I know this may not be to everybody’s taste and I’m not after critiques, it’s released and finished now. I would hope that you listen though, the books had a profound effect on me. This is the first thing I’ve ever released, that should say enough about their power. Thank you John
  10. I noticed that there were a lot of musicians on here. So...... here all you musicians can post musician jokes, talk about your bad sight-reading skills, and bemoan your musician fates.
  11. In Vorin cultures music is seen as feminine. Not as exclusively so as reading and writing, people aren't excessively scandalized to see Hoid with his flute after all. But the vast majority of musicians in Vorin lands are female. This does fit with the general feel of what arts are supposed to be masculine and feminine but it presents a problem. Most musical instruments require two hands to play, I cannot picture anyone being able to play a harp for instance with one hand covered in cloth, even if they are simply wearing a glove. Some instruments one could manage to play gloved if one practiced that way, for instance the Organ, Piano, Harpsichord and the like. A Hurdy Gurdy is an instrument operated by pressing keys with one hand and working a crank with the other, I could see a Vorin woman playing one of those. One could play a bowed instrument such as a Violin, Viola, or Cello left handed, that is, operating the bow with the covered left hand and the strings with the right, but this would take a lot of extra practice.I am not familiar enough with the woodwind family to say how practical playing a flute while gloved would be, if anyone can shed light of this then by all means do so. I could also see special musical gloves being made for female musicians, designed to make it easier to play certain instruments. One other solution to the modesty problem is to have the musicians obscured behind a curtain while they play, invisible to onlookers. I could also see Vorin instruments being made with special vales attached to obscure the left hand while playing. Does anyone have any more ideas for what kinds of instruments would be practical for Vorin women to play?
  12. Ok so, this is being written as I'm listening to Revolver, which I must say is somewhat of a shift from their earlier work. Everything before it was somewhat similar, but not in a bad way. For some reason, certain songs reminded me of surf guitar instrumentals which I will occasionally listen to when I'm not in the mood for my usual playlist or my soundtrack music playlist. But I digress. Now, I've not listened to the Beatles much before this point (I know, I'm a heretic) but I definitely prefer Revolver over Rubber Soul. Both are good, but I like most songs on Revolver more so than on Rubber soul. More to come (maybe)
  13. So, I like electronopop, and as I was listening to my favorite artist (Owl City) there was this song that reminded me of mistborn, specifically Spook. It's called Embers by Owl City, Album name: The Midsummer Station here are the lyrics: There were days when each hour was a war I fought to survive There were nights full of nightmares and I dreaded closing my eyes There were skies that burst open with a downpour to drown me alive But the world took a spark like a match in the dark and the fire brought me to life So I'm fanning the flames to climb so high 'cause there's no other way we can stay alive 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die And you'll find, there'll be mornings when the ashes and embers are cold But you'll fight with a passion and you'll never stop 'cause you know Yeah you know it gets better and your story is yet to be told Every push, every shove, every war, every love Yeah the coals are beginning to glow So I'm fanning the flames to climb so high 'cause there's no other way we can stay alive 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die Don't let the fire die It gets better Just don't let the fire die, no 'Cause we're burning bright as we all unite And when it's all said and done we'll shine like the sun so don't let the fire die And we'll watch the sky as it fills with light And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die And though the embers are new, whatever you do just don't let the fire die Don't let the fire die Let me know your thoughts! I have more Mistborn songs.
  14. Hi everyone! I've been working on a project to set the poetry and songs of the Wheel of Time to music. I have a number of pieces written and I can sing some of the parts, but I don't have anybody to play with. I've attached the only setting I have recorded: Mat's "Color of Trust" (from Lord of Chaos) which is sung by me, with my father on guitar. Are there any musically inclined fans (especially in the Seattle area) who are interested in getting together to play them together? Let me know if you're interested and what you sing/play, and we can plan from there :-) P.S. I know this might be better in the Wheel of Time forum, but I'm not restricting myself to Wheel of Time fans. Color of Trust - Voice/Guitar Wind that Shakes the Willow - Voice/Piano Forward the Lion - Voice/Piano As Long as the Wheel Turns - Voice/Piano Tia mi aven - 6 voice round Wash the Spears - 4 voice round Life is a Dream - 3 voices Soft the Winds - 3 voices Color of Trust.mp3
  15. Hi Everyone! So excited to share Gemheart, a love song from Navani to Dalinar, released on my band's last album (3 of us are Sanderfans). There's so much about that relationship that I love seeing represented in fiction, and some of Navani's later POV chapters really struck me by how pragmatic her love was for Dalinar, even though it was hard and unfair at times. So I wrote some lyrics about it. Lyrics are below the Spotify link - the track is available wherever you get your music, but I dropped in links to Youtube and Bandcamp down there, too. Thanks for taking time to listen! home yeah i got a home in you and you know you got a home inside me too years they come and years they go and even if it’s late it’s nice to know years they go and all we know is somehow we’re alive you got my mind, you got this heart until the planet or me falls apart no we won’t get blessings from on high cause you know, oh turns out you know a different guy storms they come and storms they go and if you don’t step out you’ll never glow storms they blow and we don’t know if we’re gonna survive the world might end before the year so let me try to make this crystal clear i’m gonna wait out, hold out wait out, hold out wait out, hold out when you’re ready, so am i if you need time, take time you need more? i’ll make time if you gotta, take mine i will build it if you come, all right you could use a thousand soldiers i could use a hundred scribes i guess at least we got each other? home yeah i got a home in you and you know you got a home inside me too seasons come and seasons go and if we’re living, then we gotta grow seasons go, and now we know the way to make us thrive you got my muscle and my bone but if you need to fight this war alone i'm gonna wait out, hold out wait out, hold out wait out, hold out i will stand when others fall if you need time, take time you need more? i’ll make time if you gotta, take mine i will build it if you call, all right i’m gonna wait out, hold out wait out, hold out wait out, hold out wait out, hold out if you need time, take time you need more? i’ll make time if you gotta, take mine i will build it if you come, all right all right Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=teen+girl+scientist+monthly+gemheart Bandcamp: https://teengirlscimo.bandcamp.com/track/gemheart
  16. This is a fan club for those who love metal of any form. Except tin.
  17. I was listening to Play with Fire by Sam Tinnesz and it occurred to me that that would be a perfect theme song for the Dustbringers/Releasers. I know Kaladin already has an album dedicated to him, likely serving as the official theme music of the Windrunners. So I decided to share and ask for opinions of good pairings of music and character/group. I placed the post here because, hey, why limit this to SA? Let's everyone join in.
  18. Not sure if there's much crossover between the SoundCloud rap community and the Mistborn/Cosmere community... but figured I'd share this demo in case that overlap contains more than just me haha Recently, I've been really into the Horrorcore genre, where lyrics tend to be... pretty dark and violent. Thought it would be a fun/funny exercise to write a song in that genre along those themes, but exclusively referencing Mistborn Era 1 (which, at times, is also... pretty dark and violent). I'm still very new to hip-hop production and rapping—this is actually the first rap song I've ever written and recorded (my musical background is in classical and rock), so it's really just for fun, but wanted to share in case someone else got a kick out of it. I wrote, performed, and recorded every part of the song (lyrics, production, mixing, mastering, etc.) so if anyone has feedback on any of that, I'd greatly appreciate that as well! The beat is somewhat inspired by gothic/baroque organ music, since I wanted the song to have a bit of a hymnal/religious feel, in theme with both Kelsier's and Rashek's storylines in Era 1. The first verse is from Kelsier's perspective ("To Kill God"), while the second verse is from Rashek's perspective ("Become God"). The full title ("To Kill God, Become God") also references three things: (1) Kelsier's plan to become a religious figure to defeat The Lord Ruler, (2) Rashek's Ascension to defeat The Deepness, and of course, (3) the finale of Hero of Ages. So, without further ado: "To Kill God, Become God" [Verse 1 - Kelsier] [Verse 2 - Rashek]
  19. I know there was a soundtrack made for WoK/Kaladin, and it was awesome. Can we expect more?
  20. I was listening to my YouTube Mix the other day and re-reading Well of Ascension, and something decided it would be a good idea to throw the song Stronger On Your Own (by Disturbed, I listened to them once and I can never escape) right up alongside an interaction with Zane and Vin, and honestly? Ironic. Go listen to the song and tell me that doesn't sound like a song for their whole deal. That got me thinking. What songs do y'all associate with particular characters/interactions/places in the Mistborn books?
  21. I have a somewhat unusual ask, though I realize these Fandoms are not completely orthogonal: I recently composed a 5-7-voice setting of the "The Grave is No Bar to My Call" from Book 1 of the Wheel of Time, but because I am but a single humble Gleeman, I haven't heard it outside of MIDI. I was hoping that if there was sufficient interest, we could try it at some point during/after Brandon's signing in Seattle this Saturday. The music isn't terribly complicated, we'll go over all the parts, and I don't care about voice ranges on individual parts (except! the person singing "Moridin, Moridin" probably needs to be a bass). Please let me know if you have any interest! Also, if anyone wants to bring a harp, silver-chased flute (or perhaps merely a guitar), I've included the chord symbols. Thanks! "I will find the song, or another will find the song, but the song will be sung this year or in a year to come. As it once was, so shall it be again, world without end."

  22. music

    My name is Kaden MacKay. I am a composer, lyricist, slam poet, and playwright. The hobby most relevant to this forum that I have is that I write orchestral sketches based on the impressions that the genius of Brandon's books create. If there is ever a time that one of these books is made into a movie, I really, really want to compose the music for it. I have written themes and musical moments for The Rithmatist, the Mistborn series, Steelheart, Elantris, and a relatively extensive amount for the Stormlight Archive series. I hope that one day I can show Mr. Sanderson the works that his books have inspired, but, until then, I will just enjoy creating and expressing these books through music!
  23. I read all of the 3.5 Stormlight books back-to-back, almost always with a specific Google Play Music playlist playing in the background: Downtempo Instrumentals. "Hypnotic breaks and pensive electronic soundscapes from some of the greatest electronica artists: the perfect soundtrack for reading, working, or just relaxing." Now every time I hear this type of light electronic music I think of Kaladin, spear in hand, marching across the Shattered Plains... And that got me thinking, does anyone else associate a specific playlist/album with these books? I'm curious how broad such associations may be.
  24. Just hear that bass and think of all those digestive juices consuming those bones! I dare you to listen to the whole thing. It's quite brutal.
  25. So I've been kicking around in my head for awhile some music of the Cosmere and their characters. I messaged @Chaos about this and he said as long as I spoilered the lyrics and tagged the thread as explicit it should be ok. It is kinda hard to find music that doesn't have cursing in it, to fit this violent galaxy, but I was wondering what everyone else thought. So I read the original Mistborn trilogy awhile back, and then heard this song and it immediately attached itself to the first era Mistborn in my head. It's My Name is Human by Highly Suspect. Lyrics: Dalinarar from Oathbringer in his early years is incredibly murderous and the song Scream Aim Fire from Bullet For My Valentine seems to fit him well. Lyrics: The last one in for Kaladin and also kind of a joke. How to Save a Life by The Frey. Lyrics: Thoughts? Any other characters you have in your head? Disagreements, maybe you think of different songs? Am I the only person that matches music to books they read? Hope no one is offended by the songs picked.
