In Extremis

Soundtrack Saturday: Aug.8

Ypx here—today we’re going to be listening to “Flower Fields” from Kirby’s Epic Yarn.

Composed by Tomoya Tomita and released with the game Kirby’s Epic Yarn in 2010 for Japan and 2011 worldwide, the soundtrack consists mostly of Piano with some accompaniment interspersed. The game was re-released as Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn for 3DS in 2019 to mixed reviews.

The introduction of the track sets up a simple 2 bar phrase that is examined through variation for the remainder of the track and is solely piano. Bass notes in the lower range of the piano do not appear for the first 30-35 seconds of the song and are absent for long sections, making their use in transitionary portions and more emotive chords notable from the lighthearted majority of the track.
