Hey! Dancing questions [Feb. 21st, 2009|12:11 am]
The Castlevania Music Community

[mood |contemplativecontemplative]
[music |Wakeshima Kanon - Suna no Oshiro]

So. I'm a weird guy. I just joined the community, after doing some searches for potential listings of dance steps that would go with CV music.

I'm organizing something for a LARP (that stands for live-action role playing), using the new Vampire: The Requiem system, and I had put together a music playlist for the ball that included a number of Castlevania themes (noteably Wood Carving Partita, Dance of Pales, Requiem for the Gods, Lost Paintings, Dance of Gold) and some other classical music and game themes.

I was wondering if anyone had any specific thoughts about dance steps, such as types of waltz, that would fit any of the above songs?

Alright this community needs some reviving. I was listening to some sotn music and I thought it would be nice to ask you all what your favorite tracks are from the game.

Mine are in:

Rainbow Cemetary
Dance of Pales
The Tragic Prince

Rainbow Cemetary really has a great beat to it, I just have to listen to the full thing everytime it comes on my playlist!

Castlevania symphony [Jul. 28th, 2006|10:40 am]
The Castlevania Music Community

I'm a BIG fan of video game music, and I just came from play! A Video Game Symphony in Philidelphia yesterday. The concert was AWESOME. Check out the website for more details!


They're featuring CASTLEVANIA music at the concert on Toronto! Those lucky fans in Canada!

Does anyone know how to get the old Nintendo Castlevania music? Simon's Quest, and the like? Any soundtracks I look for are always from Playstation..

Hey all! I think it's awesome that this community is open. Castlevania truly has one of the best soundtracks a series could have. I was wondering how many of you are familiar with the music from Castlevania IV (the one for snes) I think a lot of people forget about it. But it's actually one of my favs (next to SoTN) there's just something so evil and sinister about every track, it fits so well! If so, what are your favorite tracks?

[music |Dance of Pales]

I just saw Superman Returns.

If you've seen it as well, don't you think it would be a nice touch if the "Dance of Pales" (Olrox's Quarters' theme from Symphony of the Night) were used as the background music in the central hall of Luthor's ship?

Welcome to cv_music! [Jul. 21st, 2006|10:47 am]
The Castlevania Music Community

As the post title says, welcome to cv_music!

The purpose of this community is the discussion of the music of the Castlevania series--a videogame series world-renowned for its amazing music. From the beginning (no pun intended!), it has produced gems, including the famed "Vampire Killer" and "Bloody Tears". As sound systems became more powerful, more great music appeared, often limited only by hardware (as in Bloodlines) or game size (as in Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night). Symphony of the Night is often considered to have one of the best videogame soundtracks, if not the best, of all time; but it's far from the only soundtrack that has been praised.

I'm personally a Castlevania fan, videogame music enthusiast, and classically-trained pianist, so it comes as little surprise that I'm a big fan of Castlevania music. I'm into analyzing them--what they are, what makes them so effective; I also often transcribe them for piano, for fun.

This community is dedicated to the discussion of any and all aspects of Castlevania music.

Don't be afraid of dorky discussions; I once wrote on a chalkboard (as can be seen in this community's first userpic) "The SUBTONIC is so cool it can even kill vampires!", pointing to the third chord of "Vampire Killer". If you want to figure out what notes a certain line has, you can ask here. If you're trying to figure out who wrote the early soundtracks (more specifically than "Kukeiha Club"), you can ask here. If you want to talk about your favorite tracks or favorite games for soundtracks, you can talk about it here. If you want to find out how many parody Konami-created arrangements there are of "Beginning", you can talk about that here, too. (There're at least two, to my knowledge.)

I'll start off with my own question, something I've been wondering for a while:

What genre is SotN's "Rainbow Cemetery"? (Other than "videogame".)

(I think I know the answer, but I'm not sure, and I won't give it so as not to bias y'all's thoughts beforehand.)
