Buildings by the Quay

Here’s a photo of some of the buildings near Circular Quay. Not much to say about this one. It’s neat enough. I think I could’ve done better, but I do like that there’s a sense of depth, and that the … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: A New World

This one took five listens. It was a bit of a struggle to write which may have to do with being tired at the moment. Probably should’ve taken to it earlier. Nobuo Uematsu’s (植松 伸夫) “A New World” (“新しき世界”) is … Continue reading

Jesu: Terminus

I hit a roadblock with this one. Ended up scrapping the whole thing and starting again, though some of what I originally wrote made it in. I don’t think I did a good job with this one. I got across … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: Unknown Lands

Frame Around the Bridge

Nobuo Uematsu: Searching for Friends

Three listens for this one. The approach here was much looser. Sort of aimed for a blend but also didn’t. Just let it all happen and… yeah. The below result. Nobuo Uematsu’s (植松 伸夫) “Searching for Friends” (“仲間を求めて“), is from … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: Dark World

Four listens for this one. I had an idea for some lines that would work before writing this and I don’t think I used any of them. I leaned heavily on a sense of the dramatic here which I think … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: Terra’s Theme

This was written over three listens. Wasn’t really aiming for anything in particular with this one. Just started with trying to get the start down and let it run from there. End result is a bit of a mess, but … Continue reading
