Choicest VGM - VGM #248 - Detroit - The Anvil Chrous (Introduction)

Screenshot of the intro from computer game Detroit

Soundtrack composed by: Christopher J. Denman and Jason P. Rinaldi

This track is taken from the introduction sequence to the automobile industry simulation game, Detroit. Once again, Christopher J. Denman (along with the help of Jason P. Rinaldi) has borrowed a famous piece of classical music to use as an intro theme to a game. Previously, it was "Ride of the Valkyries" for the game Global Domination; this time it's Giuseppe Verdi's "Anvil Chorus" which seems appropriate for a game about manufacturing cars, don't ask me why :).

The intro sequence shows how the styling of cars have changed through the ages, starting out with something that looks like a Model-T Ford and ending with a "modern" (i.e. 1990s) sports car.

The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards.
