Junya Nakano: Luca

Two listens for this one.

I stumbled during the first listen and couldn’t get my footing back so I waited for the song to finish. I then resumed writing and I’m not sure as to what I was trying to get across. I think feel, but I’m not sure.

Junya Nakano’s (仲野順也) “Luca” (“ルカ”) 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.

Gentle sounds lap at shorelines and structures whilst a sunny sky hangs on above. Soft percussion comes in and joins the soft sounds. Bass joins and plays relaxed whilst the percussion becomes livelier whilst keeping itself gentle. All is flowing with ease and there seems to be a sense of peace in the air.

Soon a shift; something gently dots away whilst the instruments seem to step upward and allow more space. There’s a firmness in the bass countered by something a bit more soft, but it melds well and it’s a lively spike without an aggressive attack.

The sounds loop back to where they started and once more ride and move through, keeping things feeling loose and easy, and once more they return to their shift with a liveliness. It’s smooth and easy, but soon something new comes in and it spreads out more of the calm. It’s lower, and gentler, almost as though a coolness has settled whilst shade spreads outward across a large place, but it doesn’t last long and soon a return to how the song started comes in as it fades out and the song ends.
