I was doing alright with this one but had to restart a bit of the way in, so it was roughly two listens for this bit of writing.
The last few days have been rather long and left little room for anything other than work, though what little done outside of work has been productive which is a plus. Anyway, I’d queued this song up either yesterday or two days ago. I cannot remember right now.
I feel that I had too much focus on certain words here and whilst they were appropriate, there was a bit more I could’ve said. I didn’t go in with an aim and I think the result was I sort of described imagery whilst describing what was going on in the song. Maybe.
Mitsuto Suzuki’s (鈴木光人) “The Void Beyond” (“時空の狭間”) is from the soundtrack for Final Fantasy XIII-2, Final Fantasy XIII-2 Original Soundtrack. The soundtrack was composed by Mitsuto Suzuki, Naoshi Mizuta (水田 直志) and Masashi Hamauzu (浜渦 正志).
I hope you enjoy.
Eerie sound pours out and spreads as keys tenderly step. Vocals come in and move carefully, seemingly moving with friction. They gain more detail and prominence, and keys carefully step around their drag. Suddenly all seems to twist and find itself moving at odd angles.
It is not long before the main melody returns. The memory of the vocals remains as strings follow their melody before twisting away and disappearing. The eerie sound remains and keys themselves provide a small fragment.
Soon the vocals return and once more all twists away. The vocals seem to disappear as a muted harshness reaches out. Once more the strings return and once more they twist away and disappear. The eeriness remains and there is nothing left other than the eeriness, and soon that too disappears at the song’s end.
