Miyoko Kobayashi: Further into the Wide World

This one was a bit of a challenge and took roughly three listens.
Roughly rather than actually as it was two listens but what I have is a form of the song that is extended for some reason and so it is three listens of the song at its proper length so… yeah.

This was a challenge for me to do as I was having trouble finding my footing. That said, I think I’ve captured an idea of the song; it’s not exactly a firm capturing, but it does get across some of it in a rather vague manner.

Miyoko Kobayashi’s (小林 美代子) “Further into the Wide World” (“さらなる広い世界へ“) is from Terranigma Creative Soundtracks (天地創造 クリエイティヴサウンドトラックス). It’s a soundtrack that covers some of the compositions from Terranigma.

I hope you enjoy.

A dawning approaches as sounds draw near. Low and becoming more prominent, and preparing for a continuing journey. Soon strings move and glide above a landscape that is quiet and gradually filling and becoming busier. Space remains, but the sounds move to take up some more.

Another sound takes the lead in a moment of solitude and wondering. It crests and glides and finds a moment to pull away. The weight of responsibility retains its firmness and before it can slow the sounds push out and become wider and the grandness of the landscape is there in all of its beauty. It is dramatic and apparent and wonderful to look upon, and so the weight remains but does not prevent and so the journey continues as the song ends.
