(Adobe Flash required for audio player)

This is part of a little soundtrack I was asked to compose for an upcoming RPG named Taiga by friend Douglass Hughes. The game is set to have a dark, creepy, minimalistic feel, and I did my best to characterize it with the reduced instrumentation I was asked to use.

This is what plays when the player enters beautiful snowy scenery. Douglass wanted a sound that was ethereal and enchanting, yet mysterious, conveying a sense of surreality. I think I pulled it off decently.

Written & recorded with Sibelius; mixed with Audacity.

Note: Song is subject to being modified at a later date as the game is finalized.
