Masashi Hamauzu: The Goddess is Dead

One listen for this one.
I threw myself in and just aimed at covering the song in any way I could. I ended up not covering as much as possible (though in a sense I did) and it kind of helped. There’s more of a feel described than there is a clear description of instrumentation (I think) and it works better than had I sat here and listened multiple times to get a full description across.

Masashi Hamauzu’s (浜渦 正志) “The Goddess is Dead” (“女神なき世界”) is from Final Fantasy XIII-2 Original Soundtrack, the soundtrack for Final Fantasy XIII-2. The soundtrack was created in collaboration with Naoshi Mizuta (水田 直志) and Mitsuto Suzuki (鈴木 光人).

I hope you enjoy.

Murmurings among an ominous air. Sound slides in and underscores the mood, and vocals call out in a distance. A slight percussive strike here and there, vocals return. Things grow louder, harsher, more menacing. The twisting of a triumphant moment and it keeps growing louder and louder and the percussion rolls, sounds slide and contort, and an electronic harshness.

A sudden strike among another percussive roll, and all starts to pull back and drop away. A metallic hum stretches out beyond all else as the moment is concluded, frozen in time. The hum continues on but it too fades and disappears as the song ends.

I'm some guy that does stuff. Hoping to one day fill the internet with enough insane ramblings to impress a cannibal rat ship. I do more than I probably should. I have a page called MS Paint Masterpieces that you may be interested in checking out. I also co-run Culture Eater, an online zine for covering the arts among other things. We're on Patreon!
