Selecting a stage on Aqua Star.

"Aqua Star: Stage Select" is a short, 6/8-timed theme in the key of C major. The pulsation is characteristic of a tarantella, much like the instrumentation, which consists of a lead recorder backed by an accordion and tambourine. The melody features a rising broken tonic triad in first inversion. After it plays twice with slight differences, a middle section in C minor follows. This section has descending scale-like passages, which similarly play twice, the second time ending in the dominant. The track loops from there.
