It’s the start of another week that for many of us means going back to work/school/whatever. We all have our favorite background music, but a good candidate for this week is now available courtesy of Stephen Morris. They created “Kirby à la Mode”, recreating classic Kirby tracks with the goal of relaxing as much as possible.
You can listen above and below the tracklist and some more details from Morris:
Kirby’s Mode track listing:
1 Green Green (Kirby’s Dream Land)
2. Vineyard (Kirby Adventures)
3. Rainbow Route (Kirby and the Amazing Mirror)
4. Creamery (Kirby Adventures)
5. Pop Star (Kirby 64: The Crystal Shard)
6 Gourmet Race (Kirby Super Star)
7. King Dedede (Kirby’s Dream Land)
8. Wavy Field (Kirby’s Dream Land 3)
9. Sand Canyon (Kirby’s Dream Land 3)
10 Rick the Hamster (Kirby’s Dream Land 2)
Each arranged track is a combination of calm, relaxing yet eclectic and harmonically rich styles with an emphasis on acoustic instruments. Green Green and Ripple Field are presented in a bossa nova style, Gourmet Race is presented as a slow and contemplative but condensed transition, King Dedede is presented in a country and western style, and Sand Canyon’s desert-inspired melodies are underlined by an electric sitar and a variety of percussion, including oud . Other tracks typically feature finger-style acoustic guitar as well as a wind ensemble section.
Last year we also spoke with Stephen Morris to find out more about his Bossa De Hyrule project.
