From NB's Website:
"This seemed to be everyone's favourite of the two main tunes but I actually preferred Track 2 (see Track 2 for reasons why). Two things of significance here: the time signature changes from 4/4 (in the intro) to 6/8 which was a first for me and the faked tempo modulation. I say faked because, well, because it was! I never had a tempo setting in the music driver (and funnily enough I don't have one in Nijuu - though I will do as I've figure out quite a cool way to do it) so the section where the song slows down at the end of the intro I had to do manually by gradually increasing the note lengths to give the impression of ritardando.
I think my favourite bit is the third section that uses the arpeggios that alternate between octaves. It's something I came up with in the project-that-nobody-knows-about to try to give a more orchestral feel and I just used the same trick for Hero Quest. I like the way it almost sounds layered, like the higher octave notes are on top of the lower ones. Makes it sound nice and rich though I understand that arpeggios are not liked by everyone :)"
