I’ve always loved the town of Soneros as a tropical-resort-like town. Even in the very first Arvale (Journey of Illusion) I wanted it to have its own separate music track. At the time, we ran out of memory space (mobile device constraints) and it had to be shelved. But when I got around to Arvale II, I learned a few tricks on how to save more space and include more music (as I mentioned in this design article) and was finally able to include Soneros’s music.
In any case, this track is still heavily influenced on the original Soneros music, but updated with better instrumentation and well, awesomeness. I won’t give away the whole track, but start from it’s C-section (did I just say that? I mean ABABC!), the theme which sounds completely different than the rest of the track as I really like it, and it’s easy to pass over it. Nylon string guitar and the soft clarinet really mesh well and have a nice foil to the rest of the tunes poppy piano and flute melody.
Ah, and here’s the track: town3sample
