Yesterday January 3rd would have been Tolkien’s 126th birthday, to mark this Deseret News had a wonderful interview with Chance Thomas about all his work making the wonderful music of LOTRO.

 

 

“Everybody is familiar with the Peter Jackson films and the music from those films, I’m the other Lord of the Rings composer.”

They talked about the 10th-anniversary soundtrack a bit

“First of all, I went to the songs that the players seemed to love the most, they had to be on there, And then I wanted to tell a story. I wanted the music to take you on this epic adventure. … So as I put the music together, it was designed to give you a journey of imagination through Middle-earth.”

 

And ended up talking about the Ever On song that everyone loves

“I took that poem and that phrase, ‘Ever on,’ and I made a folky/pop song out of it to commemorate 10 years of this game going on and on and on, In the books, the story sort of ends at Mordor … but the approach that Lord of the Rings Online has taken is that, ‘No, the story goes ever on and on.’”

You can read the full interview over at the Deseret News website
