Choicest VGM - VGM #87 - Loom - Overture



Original Composer: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Transcribed by: George Alistair Sanger and Gary Hammond

Ah Loom - a game that was all about music. Not only was the entire soundtrack based on the classic Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky, but the actual game mechanic used to solve puzzles involved the use of "drafts" where you would use four notes in order to accomplish things from opening a door to setting a dragon's tail on fire. The Overture that is heard here is probably one of the most famous segments in Tchaikovsky's ballet. Makes the game all that more melodramatic :).
