Hiroshi Yamaguchi: Ōkami Shiranui

I wrote this over two listens and the writing didn’t quite pan out.
This is one where I thought too much about what I was writing. The result here is that I didn’t cover enough and kind of drifted around. Some of the song is covered, but not in a way that does it justice, I think.

Hiroshi Yamaguchi’s (山口裕史) “Ōkami Shiranui” (“大神 白野威”) is from Ōkami Original Soundtrack, the soundtrack for Clover Studios’ Ōkami.

I hope you enjoy.

A voice is joined by other voices and something that sparkles as it rings out, and then a gentle strike reveals a greater space of sound. The voices carry gentle and float as strings underscore and carry all to a dramatic space.

Slow and flowing and more percussion comes in, and motion is precise and all continues on as a dire moment is turned around. The sounds are revealing and certain, and they are supportive. They are reverent.

The sounds rise and fall, and continue their flow onward and around and they continue on as all fades out and the song ends.
