Sanctuary of Stone and Fire music & tarantella

Post by PluMGMK » Sun Apr 27, 2014 12:04 am

I recall that Wikipedia once stated vaguely that the music in the Sanctuary of Stone and Fire was "reminiscent of" tarantella folk-dance music. Is there anything to this? If so, are there any other folk music influences like that apparent in Rayman 2 music? (I'm guessing maybe not, since the Pink Floyd connection was made particularly apparent recently, but then again it's late and my mind might not be working properly at the moment…)

Hello PluMGMK, forgive me if I answer you again but I can assure that knowing well this type of italian folk-music (which in addition personally don't like, because I find them of bad taste) the tarantella has nothing to do with the style of Rayman 2's soundtrack if not a vague reminiscence to the primordial rhythms.
The Rayman 2's musical inspirations are the application of electronics to the instrumental music of Pink Floyd.

My sources are the fact that I am italian and I can confirm what I just said and because this is the music that have ispired Éric Chevalier to made the music in Sanctuary of Stone and Fire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLw0C7CvL_8 - http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ieQZoY9PQlY

Listen this entirely album and you will see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVJFOONcGDQ

Thank you for assuring me that this information was incorrect. :) Not knowing was quite frustrating!
