PC-ITA Daring Escape

Author: flag Virt (Jake Kaufman)

Uploaded By: flagMystra

Song Length: 3:22
Release Year: 1999
Song Status: Active
Song Platform: PlatformPC-IT

Additional Information:


This first started as an attempt to integrate a breakbeat with an old
chiptune I had written, and I ended up combining several melodies that
were not powerful enough on their own, into one large idea.

I had originally envisioned this as an escape from a huge castle, with the
fanfare at the beginning and then devious stirrings of tension... I ended
up going way out of line with cheesy chord progressions. Some Necros
influence here, and believe it or not I used one 4-chord transition from
the fight music in Laguna's scenarios in FF8. See if you can find it :D

At the end, the last pattern with drums in it, the chord progression is a
variant of the type used in the Back to the Future theme. I've never been
able to get it before, and I'm fucking proud, because it's complicated!

In all, I think this captures the "long journey together" so it was
fitting for Tasha and Robbit. Mazel Tov, guys :D


///A Daring Escape\\\
-a hybrid chiptune,
-by Virt of Alliance

This song is for Robert
And Tasha, to celebrate
their recent marriage.

I wish you everlasting
Love and happiness.
someday, we will all
get together and
hang out. I promise.

Most samples taken from
Mr.D, who took them from
me in the first place, so
I'm ripping my own samps!
