Notes on the Necromantic Symphony

Few reliable records have survived of the premiere of Mrod Zogorith’s last and greatest work, the Symphony No. 36 in Mode 9. Zogorith herself vanished after the performance, and morbid rumors in its wake caused the wags to dub it the Necromantic Symphony. It is likelier that Zogorith fled the region during the subsequent Siege of Taruon, or was killed.

Fantasy. Not quite a story, but trust me, my school orchestra experiences never went like this. Thanks to Mrissa, my sister, Stacy C., Charles, JDR, and Melymbrosia. Appeared in Farrago’s Wainscot Part IV: Fall.

The original inspiration for this piece hit when I learned the term “wolf tone.”
