Four listens for this bit of writing and it didn’t work well.
I struggled a bit with this one and I think it may have been thinking about how much I’ve covered songs from this particular soundtrack and this artist in particular.
I tried to go for more of a sense of mood and some of it came across but overall I think I was too vague.
Junya Nakano’s (仲野順也) “This is Your Story” (“これはお前の物語だ“) is from Final Fantasy X Original Soundtrack, the soundtrack for Final Fantasy X. Whilst Nobuo Uematsu composed most of the game’s songs, both Junya Nakano and Masashi Hamauzu (浜渦 正志) contributed as the soundtrack was a collaborative effort. The result was a pretty strong work with music that matched Final Fantasy X‘s setting really well.
I hope you enjoy.
Piano plays with a tender sadness whilst other sounds move with a sense of inevitability. They weigh heavy, as though soon undesirable change is to occur in a sudden manner. They rise, almost being pulled from a long dream.
A slight lowering before more weight comes forward and sounds strike out and stir and fill out before pulling away. What is left shimmers as piano slowly descends to depths before suddenly playing one last strike.
Strings gradually build in intensity before suddenly stopping for the change finishes and there is nothing left at the song’s end.
