Music box

This sounds like the sort of piece that I would immediately associate with that of a child's music box - the sort that is intricately carved or inlaid with precious metals. As you lift the lid, this piece begins and perhaps a little dancer stands up, starting to turn on the spot.

A lovely little tune, very calm and soothing, just as the sort of tunes that would be used in said boxes, but with a little more depth - you're not just playing this tune on a set of metal teeth that get flicked by a rotating drum, you have added more sound effects and the subtlety that they have been done with is fantastic.

Highly suitable for a high fantasy game or flash, you would be able to have this represent a great many things on the ambient scale, such as an icy cave, with the sounds being synonymous with the icicles dangling from the ceiling. I personally love this track and every time it plays through, I get a little more attached to it.
