The Amazing Brando - “A Bell Is Tolling” (Secret of Mana)

from Super VG Christmas Party by Patient Corgi



“I chose this track because the music expresses varying degrees of how it feels to be cold. The first movement is bitter cold: that stinging in your ears when you forget your hat and your gloves and the wind is like a million tiny needles chapping your face. Frostbite. The second movement is when the wind dies down and the sun peeks out to give you a feeling of hope. Birds and squirrels are rustling about, preparing for the long winter. The third movement, when the drums kick in, remind me of the long trek itself. To me, it represents the human aspect. The rhythm of the journey. It’s when I can see my own breath on the air and feel the snow squeaking underneath my feet. I can feel my body heat trapping under my clothing. It’s almost like a snowball fight kind of feeling. I faded the piano into a bell sound throughout the track to represent the evil staining the land, transforming something as innocent as Santa Claus into a Frost Gigas.”
