In Extremis

Soundtrack Saturday: Sep.19

Ypx here—today we’re going to be listening to “Daybreak” from Skullgirls.

Released digitally for consoles in 2012, Skullgirls is a 2D fighting game with some fun twists such as non-1v1-fights and unbalanced teams. The soundtrack was composed by Michiru Yamane, Vincent Diamante, Blaine McGurty, and Brenton Kossak. Yamane is notable for her work on the Castlevania games.

Beginning with a guitar, we’re slowly introduced to a cello that functions as a bassline to the soon-to-be introduced melody in a low flute. After joining with more woodwinds, we get some octave doubling of the bassline by higher strings that drives home the somber mood before returning to the guitar alone.
