Featuring Lufia 2 - Rise of the Sinistrals ans several genres.
Greetings fellow game music lovers,
as promised, another track for Lufia 2 - Rise of the Sinistrals for SNES from 1995. This little mischievous tune plays in the Lexis Shaia lab, the mad scientist family whose members support the heroes throughout the ages:
It's hard to pinpoint this one as comparable stuff has appeared in different genres through the ages. Some examples:
Quarteto em Cy - "Sapato Mole" (1972) (listen closely to the drum(?) in the background:
Phew - H-Stag (1987):
Of course, in theory these low-high-high-high low-high-high-high patterns already existed in 19th century romantic music. Aim for the piano in the background:
Camille Saint-Saëns - "Élégie for Violin, Op. 160 in F Major"
Structures with a similar tone can sometimes be found in waltz music:
Emile Waldteufel - "Tendresse, Waltz, Op. 217"
And an oddball, something of an inbetween of the two eras:
Richard Himber - "Day After Day" (1938):
More Lufia next week? Maybe. Otherwise there is plenty of other stuff to do.
