Yasunori Mitsuda: Gem Which Cannot Be Stolen

I tried to switch off here but it didn’t quite work.
There was a bit too much thinking and I was trying not to describe the song as it progressed but I think too much of that came through.

Yasunori Mitsuda’s (光田 康典) “Gem Which Cannot Be Stolen” (“盗めない宝石”) is from the soundtrack for Xenogears, Xenogears Original Soundtrack.

I hope you enjoy.

A tenderness in an empty space stirs and slowly a form reveals itself. Strings move underneath among sound oscillating. Woodwind heralds a new day and soon it comes to a halt.

Light bass, keys and perhaps something akin to guitar envision something almost welcoming and comforting and small, though homely. Almost. Soon the strings return as does the woodwind and all move in a harmonious manner and all carry a quiet life upon a breeze.

Soon a return to that heralding woodwind and a loop back into the bass, keys and something akin to guitar. A small cosiness is reinforced and a coolness floats through as welcoming sounds carry unabated. The gentleness flows on through and continues on toward wherever it must, but gradually it all fades out as the song ends.
