Silent Hill is a song from Silent Hill. The song is track 1 in the Silent Hill soundtrack and was composed by Akira Yamaoka. The song plays in the intro video. One way or another, this song appears in every main-series Silent Hill soundtrack to date, except for Silent Hill: Origins.

Description

The Silent Hill main theme is set in the key of F major for the first and third segments, as well as D major for the second segment. The tempo is a constant beat of 4 crotchets per bar for the entire song, with the first and third segments being set to a very fast pace; the second is significantly slower than both. A heavy emphasis is placed on synthesised strings, guitar, percussion and a general orchestra, with the choir making itself heard in the second segment. The third segment seems to employ the signature three-note bass melody of the James Bond theme.
