Yarash's Pyramid
Composer Seiji Toda
Released 1991-06-28

Yarash's Pyramid plays while your party explores the twisted, deadly passages of the sorcerer Yarash's pyramid located on Sorcerer's Island.

The song is in the 4/4 time signature, plays at approximately 135 BPM, and is atonal, but appears to be based around C. The song starts out with a drum loop that plays throughout the entire song. The bass then enters with a repeating cycle of C Db Bb B, all of which play a half-note in length. The lead instrument then plays a 4-bar loop 3 times. On its second loop, the another instrument comes in to harmonize with the bassline, adding to the creepy atmosphere of the pyramid. The song then ends with the harmonizing instrument and bass to play in unison, while an echo-y piano-like sound plays a Ab and Bb at two different octaves in 8th notes. The song then loops from the part that the bass entered in.

The song was written by Seiji Toda in Music Macro Language. Seiji should be contacted for an official title.
