Some game music gets stuck in your head because they catch your imagination and creativity. That can be annoying at times, and even more so when you are a composer. MRC crew member Jorito has had this fascination for Konami's Contra level 4 "Waterfall" song for a long time, but never did anything with the ideas it triggered.
Until now, that is. Finding both time and inspiration at the same moment, he got to it and came up with an interesting take on this classic game song. Combining the power of the orchestra with the power of rock already gave promising results, but with the help of some contributing live musicians the song really came to life. So apart from Jorito's overall arrangement and virtual instruments you can also hear Ivan Hakštok on rhythm guitar, Erik Vreven on drums and Sixto Sounds on lead guitar.
So there you have it, a full on rock/orchestral take on Contra's waterfall theme combined with some (not so) subtle references to the level 1 "Jungle" theme in the calmer parts of the song. The song can of course be downloaded from our downloads database or played with the MSX Music player on your right, but it can also be found together with some more music on Jorito's Soundcloud page or Youtube channel.
