The sound of sugar


Yeah, I know, I haven't been terribly active, (there's a lot of stuff going on IRL), but I haven't forgotten you, and there hasn't been a *ton* of stuff to post about, made even less so by the intensive, and far-reaching community of bloggers we have.

I *am* checking in, and looking around. I actually found *this* video, and thought I'd share it with you:


Makes me think about the role of music in our games. A lot of times, it just hums in the background, adding an emotional flavor to our Spiral experience. With the new Wintertusk music adding to our Spiral music Library, I thought it would be a great time for us to share with each other our *favorite* W101 music,( you know the kind that really inspires us)  and to thank our composers, Mr. Everhart and Mr. Jonas.

Please, feel free to share what you favorite W101 music is, and why. And hey, "What if W101 had a 'special' 2-d paper world?" That'd be interesting....

Be back soon, an'
Be Well.

I was about to comment what my favorite music is, but then I realized that you probably already know, don't you?

I actually just started working on a better (more accurate keyboard fancy version of the MB themes)!

Thanks for linking me :)

I'd have to say that my favorite music is the nordrilund music. Listen to the preview one in northguard. The best part I think is the last few seconds before the preview ends.

Music is wonderful :)
I love W101 music because it brings me into the game.

(This post is an instant win for adding Vocaloid! :D)

Oh YES! I love talking about the music of Wizard101. In the past, I have typed up lengthy praises of Nelson Everhart's music. I won't do that here, but I am thinking about doing some sort of music review on my blog. Anyway, my favorite music would have to be the main Marleybone theme, which plays in a lot of the buildings, such as the Royal Museum or Wolfminster Abbey. The orchestral elements are AMAZING, and so ridiculously catchy! It isn't just the Marleybone theme, but, for me at least, the very essence of steampunk. I can't look at a piece of steampunk art without hearing either the MB theme in my head, or, if a particularly exciting scene is depicted, the MB combat. Nelson Everhart really hit it out of the park with the Marleybone theme!

Also, looking forward to those keyboard themes from Kestrel :)
