"Corridors of Time" study score
« on: March 20, 2022, 06:42:34 pm »
I transcribed "Corridors of Time" for anyone who's interested. I believe it's in F# minor, and nearly heptatonic (there are a few raised submediants); 4/4 time with motoric eighths from the bonang, a gamelan instrument. I like the melody, both the sitar and the chorus after it. I left out the percussion, which is one bar of music repeated throughout. Lillypond code below.

Code: [Select]

ragged-right = ##f
ragged-bottom = ##t
indent = 1\cm
tagline = ##f
}

title = "Corridors of Time"
composer = "Yasunori Mitsuda"
