A musical composition was written by the male Wookiee composer Wurokkk for the smazzo percussion group Shluur. As an experiment, he wrote the piece specifically to cause aggression in members of the Bith species on their homeworld of Clak'dor VII by using vibrations based on Bith biorhythms and brainwave patterns. The Wookiee was successful in his efforts when the Bith attending the Shluur concerts in the Purghom Musical Performance Hall on Clak'dor VII began to show signs of aggression a week later, which resulted in riots that nearly leveled the capital city 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 escorted off-planet.
Behind the scenesEdit
The musical composition 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 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 escorting Wurokkk off-planet. In 2013, the composition was also mentioned in the first part of a two-part blog titled "Slugthrowers: An Overview of Popular Music and Musicians in a Galaxy Far, Far Away" on the official Star Wars Blog.
