The avant-garde Wookiee composer Wurokkk wrote a musical piece for the smazzo percussion group Shluur as an experiment meant to subliminally encourage aggression in members of the Bith species on their homeworld of Clak'dor VII. The experiment proved successful when some Bith began behaving erratically, even violently, a week after attending performances.
The piece was composed by the male Wookiee Wurokkk, an avant-garde arranger for the smazzo group Shluur. Created as an experiment, the piece was performed during a two-week series of sold-out performances by Shluur in the Purghom Musical Performance Hall on the Outer Rim planet Clak'dor VII. The intent of the experiment was to cause violent behavior in members of the Bith species, and the experiment proved a success when those who had attended the Shluur concerts began shouting and damaging property, with one even throwing a datapad at another a week into the concerts. The violence eventually grew into riots that almost leveled the planetary capital of Weogar.
The resulting aggression from the Bith caused their government to investigate Wurokkk. After it was discovered that every Bith showing aggression had attended multiple Shluur concerts, the Bith government had the Wookiee, along with the entire band, escorted off-planet.
Behind the scenesEdit
The musical piece was introduced in "Beat of a Different Drum," an adventure seed published in the Star Wars Roleplaying Game sourcebook Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds, which was published in March 2004 by Wizards of the Coast and written by Craig R. Carey, Jason Fry, Jeff Quick, and Daniel Wallace. In the scenario, the game's players take on the role of the spacers tasked with investigating the violence and escorting Wurokkk off-planet.
