Raney Shockne – “Enchanter” (from Dragon Age: Inquisition)

The tavern songs for Dragon Age: Inquisition made enough of a splash upon the game’s release that EA temporarily posted downloadable sheet music for them – a rare act indeed, since even the most famous themes from game music are seldom seen in sheet music form. While the vocal versions are palatable, I’m always interested to hear the instrumental versions of such songs, including this one. For me, it’s unique because the chipper tempo counters an ever-shifting melody with a distinctly wistful vibe, which is easy to talk about but tough to manage. Nick Stoubis plays here. It sounds especially good if you run it through Audacity in a lower pitch.
