This one took a lot of tries to get right. Probably because it was the last remix I made for the album. After several stylistic attempts that just didn't work, it occurred to me that this would be the perfect piece with which to goof around with wacky time signatures. The original was written in basic 4/4, but the melodies were played sporadically, with lots of quarter note triplets and other strange things that just didn't quite line up with everything else right, so I just took that idea and ran with it.
Originally I wasn't going to go industrial with this... but it just sounded so good! I kept with the original 7th Guest flavor though (piano, congas, muted trumpet, etc).
You may remember the microscope puzzle as being a direct clone of the NES "Cool Spot" game - a mutant version of Othello. And one of the most frustrating puzzles in the game, I might add. Oh yeah, and I also mingled "Cake Music," "Dolls of Doom," "Coffin Dance," and more songs from the game into the mix. :)
Kudos to anyone who can figure out the time signature.

At the age of 4, I had a WiiU with many other Nintendo related consoles. I set my eyes on games with adventure, indies like Shantae and Shovel Knight intrigued me. I immediately got Shovel Knight for every console I had. Playstation, WiiU, 3ds, I played each bit of the game. The vibrant colors, the smooth gameplay, and the overall difficulty of the game will forever stick with me as I continue my life. jxstgang

Une bande originale digne de Conan (pour ne citer que l'une des plus fameuses dans le genre), c'est dire si la qualité est au rendez-vous. Il ne me reste plus qu'à écouter la troisième symphonie de John Corigliano... J'en frémis d'avance. Poesy Rider
