"This is a graveyard level." Well, who doesn't want to hear that? And yet, it took some work. My first pass was the chiptune bonus track on this album labeled "Ghost Town Too." It didn't work, but the ascending arpeggio motif established at 10 seconds in (and then repeated) was a hook that the game developer liked, so I took that and ran with it. In this fully orchestrated version, it took some work to find the right instruments for that bit (the final mix is a combination of harp and a few other sounds). Then the mixing aspect took some refining as well. My first concept had the powerful and complex chords just hitting HARD on the organ and strings, but, that ended up being distracting. So, I toned it down and pulled them way into the background.

Complementing the mix, and adding another level of flair, are some sounds of the bandoneon, celeste, lots of tremolo strings, Apache shaker, and metal clanks.
