Junya Nakano: Phantoms

One listen for this one.

I started this yesterday evening but I wasn’t satisfied with what was coming forward. I think I may have been too tired last night and so writing was a struggle. This came a lot easier than what I tried last night but I’m also more tired. Maybe I wasn’t tired enough.

I think this works. I think on another day I may have written something much stronger, but overall I think this works.

Junya Nakano’s (仲野順也) “Phantoms” (幻想”) is from Final Fantasy X Original Soundtrack, the soundtrack for Final Fantasy X. The soundtrack was composed by Nakano, Masashi Hamauzu (浜渦 正志) and Nobuo Uematsu (植松 伸夫).

I hope you enjoy.

Chiming sound in a quiet space soon finds itself joined by additional gentle sounds. They move in and the space expands and takes shape. Mystery and wonder comes forward and it is as though all is moving at a steady pace.

Soon the sounds take a little shift and more percussion comes in. Something weaves its way around the scene and the flow. It moves with a sense of stillness and soon it stops. Once more that early expansion returns and it keeps things feeling cool and easy.

Once more that additional percussion returns and the sounds move along in a unified form. They move elegantly, and float in the air, though soon much pulls away.

There is less now and a focus on a different motion comes forward. Something draws out and slowly things seem to wind down. They seem to become quieter, growing softer, letting that sense of mystery remain a mystery until all return to that initial expansion, and once more the sounds are releveling themselves. Once more they are spreading outward, but soon all fades out as the song ends.
