Featuring Landstalker and baroque music.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
at the end of the Landstalker (1992) series I decided to post some theories about the rest of the soundtrack. After hearing the soundtrack several times, it becomes increasingly evident that a large part of it has been inspired by baroque music. On the one hand we have pretty obvious tracks like "The Marquis' Mansion" or "Light of the Setting Sun". For the finish, I want to bring up some tracks where the relationship might not be that evident.
First we have the song "Labyrinth" that plays during the cutscene at the beginning of the game and the final dungeon which features this sequence:
There is a repeating sequence in Antonio Vivaldis "Sonata RV 52 (II Allemanda)" that has an awfully similar tone and curvature to this one:
Then we have a certain cembalo like sequences that appear at the beginning of the song "Mysterious Island" that plays during certain info dump sequences and in Nolos palace:
Such outbursts can occasionally be heard in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach:
And finally a short sequence from "Seeking Adventure":
BWV 73 (Aria):
And that's it with Landstalker for now. I've some more Sega stuff prepared before summer ends after which we dive into a very hot fall.
