Is this considered my original work?
I am writing a song that is supposed to have little bits and pieces of songs from a game called Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Almost the entire song is my original work, but there are a handful of notes that are intended to reference the game's music. It's supposed to be kind of a challenge to see if you can find the parts that are from the game's soundtrack. When I upload this song, should I call it my original work or not? It's only I think 4 groups of 4 notes, but they are intended to be a copy so I don't know if it's ok or not.
