Background music loop for an imaginary theme park land called “World Gateway”. This idea was inspired by the the “world music” trend of the 1990s, and generic “world” themes such as video game levels, Rainforest Cafe, etc. My initial idea was of “world laser tag” – like laser tag, but with the “world” theme instead of the generic sci-fi theme. Then I thought about some kind of indoor theme park with such a theme… or it could be one “land” of a much larger theme park… anyway, it’s still a very vague idea, but I love the idea of making background music for an imaginary place like this…

This one-hour music loop consists of 27 tracks created by Kevin MacLeod, and released on his website, The songs are licensed under Creative Commons “Attribution 3.0” – which means he gives permission for people to use the music in just about any way as long as they give him credit. I chose the set of songs and the sequence. I have to say, I was amazed to find such perfect music for this whimsical little project – Kevin is incredibly talented – I suggest you check out his site if you are looking for music!

List of songs used: AngloZulu, Folk Round, Baltic Levity, Kumasi Groove Flugelhorn, Cambodean Odessy, Thunderhead, Bama Country, Desert City, Tango de Manzana, Artifact, Parisian, Beach Party, Monkoto, Miri’s Magic Dance, Ishikari Lore, Padanaya Blokov, Night of the Owl, Confused State, The North, Double Polka, Chanter, Whimsy Groove, Rhythm 2005, Netherworld Shanty, Night Cave, Celtic Impulse, Flutey Sting.

So sit back, relax, and imagine yourself exploring World Gateway!
