Cue of the Week: “The Four Castles”

0 Comment

Much of the score for Cortopia’s “Down the Rabbit Hole” has a fantasy or neo-Baroque character, reflecting the game’s setting and pompous resident aristocracy. This week’s cue, in contrast, is more like a 19th-century symphonic march. I restricted the instrumentation to winds and percussion in order to make the music feel less lush and more stern.

Listen to the music for free at the usual places below.
