"Space Area"[1], named "Cosmos Level" in the British English version of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, is a stage theme from Kirby & The Amazing Mirror heard in all standard areas of Candy Constellation.

Composition[edit]

Kirby explores the cosmos.

"Space Area" is an uplifting theme in harmonic A major and 4/4. It starts with a triumphant dominant intro. The first main section's melody comes in short phrases with unique arpeggiated harmonic progressions swaying from A major to its harmonic subdominant D minor and back, a tendency also present in "Castle/Building Area". It plays twice, and a short passage marks the start of the following section. This second part is more quiet, its melody is based on the arpeggiated progressions of the first section while settling on seventh chords in C major. It then repeats with an accompanying melody a third below, a similarity shared with "Ice/Crystal Area". The third section comes as a reprise of the first, with the melody playing brighter than before with a stronger harmonic basis. The track then loops from the first section proper.

Game appearances[edit]

Kirby & The Amazing Mirror[edit]

In its game of origin, "Space Area" plays in most areas within Candy Constellation.

Kirby: Squeak Squad[edit]

In Kirby: Squeak Squad, a remix of "Space Area" plays in Gamble Galaxy - Stage 2.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse[edit]

In Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, a new arrangement of "Space Area" can be collected for the Music Room in Dig and Dash. This version omits a repetition in the song's first section, making it a little shorter as a result.

Other appearances[edit]

The theme was performed live in the Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert as part of the Kirby & The Amazing Mirror / Kirby: Squeak Squad Medley, along with "Forest/Nature Area", "Prism Plains", and "Squeak Squad Appears!". The medley was arranged by Shogo Sakai, with Taizo Takemoto as the conductor. Interestingly, the version of "Space Area" heard here is shortened in the same way as the rendition from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, which Shogo Sakai also helped work on.
