Noriko Matsueda and Takahito Eguchi: Kuon: Memories of Waves and Light

This mostly came easy. I think I stopped a few times but I was still able to get out a fair bit for one listen. I think this is due to not focusing so much on what was happening and sticking more with a vague impression. Maybe.

Noriko Matsueda (松枝 賀子) and Takahito Eguchi’s (江口 貴勅) “Kuon: Memories of Waves and Light” (” 久遠 ~光と波の記憶~”) is from Final Fantasy X-2‘s soundtrack, Final Fantasy X-2 Original Soundtrack.

I hope you enjoy.

Slow and steady, melancholic. Piano rises and falls and a slight shimmer forms and falls away in the background. Something comes forward, droning, almost ephemeral. Faint wisps of something that once was form and almost complete an image but the piano keeps on and the image is never clear.

Sounds fill out and a sadness and longing come forward. The piano crests upon itself whilst that image remains vague, distant. It is known but it is unreachable.

The piano finds a sentimentality and pauses a few times as it goes low and perhaps a little more inward. A blooming upward and the main melody returns.

Once more vague sounds arise in the background and soon something seems to flourish and come clear, almost. A percussive strike and those vague sounds come to the forefront just as the song ends.
