I wasn't sure where else to put this question thread. Here goes....


I have been doing research today on different styles of Asian theatre (Japanese Kabuki theatre, Chinese shadow puppetry, etc). And I came upon ths one YouTube video which shows a group of university students who are members of the Korean Students Association at an American university (called UCF, not sure what UCF might be --maybe U-Cal Fresno? Or else maybe U of Central Florida?) doing a traditional Korean fan dance.

But the MUSIC??

That doesn't sound like Korean music to me. I kept thinking it was Russian music. And then it dawned on me why I kept thinking it was Russian ... I said to myself: "Isn't that the same music used in the video game Tetris??"

Any Tetris fans here who can verify that?

It's fine in this room; but if after a time you'd like to try a different forum, let me know and we can move your thread. The Games (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=198) forum might be a good option, where quite a few gamers hang out who might offer some insight into the source of that music.

I found it.

HERE is the music I was thinking of.

It's not THE classic, traditional Tetris music, but it is a piece of music being used in one of the current game variations.

Maybe it is Korean music. But Tetris borrowed it for the sake of variety in the game.
