One listen, but had a few restarts.
I was thinking about scrapping this and starting again as I feel I’m not saying enough about the song. I think I didn’t say enough due to the strong familiarity I have with the original song and how that may have impacted this version which I think is a pretty good version. I decided not to, however, and I’m not sure why.
Springborne’s “Memoria” is from Beyond the Mist, a Final Fantasy IX tribute album.
I hope you enjoy.
Strings draw out and seem to search for something with form. As they do some sort of chime quietly vibrates and too seems to search. It is not long until form reveals itself.
Keys ring out whilst the strings accentuate, and soon percussion comes in, slow and steady. More strings draw and flutter, a sudden flourish of keys and a soft moment reveals itself. A breath.
Suddenly all begin to rise and then another moment for breathing. Here the beat remains steady and all is mysterious, perhaps dire. All is delicate and fragile and things seem to wind down more and more, and there is a moment of happiness, but it is distant.
What is left gives way for guitar looking out, reaching and hoping and soon strings meet it and help reach further, as do a light touch of chimes, but before any answers are reached the sounds stop and the song ends.
