Hiroki Kikuta: Breezin

Here’s another that I’d been meaning to ramble on about for a bit.

I wasn’t sure as to what I was going for here. I was hoping for more visual-type writing and that came trough more toward the end but I don’t think I did the best of jobs of conveying that. Had I gone for more minimal writing I think that I would’ve captured the song really well.

Hiroki Kikuta’s (菊田 裕樹) “Breezin” (“ブリージン”) is from Seiken Densetsu 3 Original Sound Version, the soundtrack for Seiken Densetsu 3.

I hope you enjoy.

In a quiet space an instrument plays away, but it is soon joined by something else. Slowly they move through, carrying a fragility. There is a desolation of sorts but from this a small hope grows. Keys join in and echo around the melody, but soon that opening instrument is alone once more.

And soon it is joined by that something else, albeit a little lower. It moves along and continues a sense of support. That opening instrument moves lower and that support continues its playing, for hope, as small as it is, springs eternal.

All pulls away and keys return whilst something hovers underneath and fades in and out. It does not last and the opening instrument returns once more. Once more other sounds come and go, and that open, quiet space remains. However, hope springs eternal and even though fragile, the will and determination to continue remains.

All seems asleep and soon all must wake and rise, but perhaps it is not the right time. However, the winds carry whispers that reach the ears and hearts and so the resolve to not give in remains and spreads.

Eventually things most move and continue on, and so soon sounds fade as the song ends.
