Originally written as a space sim BGM track for a game mod named Terradine. Harlock's Passage has been extended and evolved into an epic space travel track.
The original game is X3 Reunion, which I developed a mod named Terradine. The instance of the song "Harlock's Passage" takes place in a custom map design along a rout of game sectors that are linked together to be called the "Harlock's Passage Trade Lanes" as their BGM track. The song reprisents the epic vastness of space and the adventurous nature of those who travel the great trade lanes.
As a random note, I put this on a disk and play it in my car during my work commute, and I often sing along to it with utter nonsense... but one thing always sticks to the end of the french horn segments.
"Harlock's passage, is where I'll be. Harlock's passage, follow me!"
Just listen for the french horn that has the trumpet playing the same notes, and the chorals going 'ooooohhh-AHHHH!!!'
Recently, I extended the song from the basic BGM to include a reduced instrument 'bridge' and a finale.
