Junya Nakano: The Summoning

This was written over six listens.

“The Summoning” is quite short, but also quite complete in its composition. It gets across what it needs to and does so without wasting a moment. When I first started I wasn’t sure as to what I was going to try and capture here. I think I mostly went for imagery and I tried to base it off the scene in Final Fantasy X for which it is used.

Turns out I didn’t remember it as well as I hoped, but I still gave an idea. I think I could’ve included more about the mystery of the whole thing, but what can you do?

Junya Nakano’s (仲野順也) “The Summoning” (“召喚“) is from Final Fantasy X Original Soundtrack, the soundtrack for Final Fantasy X. The soundtrack was composed by Nakano, Masashi Hamauzu (浜渦 正志) and Nobuo Uematsu (植松 伸夫).

I hope you enjoy.

Sounds shimmer and draw out, coming into a clear form and becoming whole and complete. They coalesce and become fuller in their sound. Moving alongside each other as the scenery invokes a sense of success and perhaps a sense of relief. Carefully points are touched upon and something underneath lurks, shifting the tone and revealing something a little foreboding, though not all are aware.

As the sounds continue on in their motion and movement and the scene is painted, they find a final moment and so close with a sense of completion and relief, though also with some questioning at the song’s end.
