Fugue on a theme by D. M. Hanlon

This is a SID tune that I composed for the Crack Intro Music Competition 2017 at CSDb. The rules called for a looping tune, no longer than 1 minute. I decided to write a fugue.

In the video, red notes indicate the subject of the fugue, namely the first few bass notes from David Hanlon's soundtrack for the game Enlightenment: Druid II. This song is also known colloquially as Fairlight, since Fairlight used it in many of their C64 crack intros. Blue notes indicate another bit of melody taken from the same song.

The video was created using Lilypond and a bit of scripting magic. It is best viewed in full-screen mode at 1080p.
