One listen for this one.
I’ve spent a lot of the day looking for something on The Internet that appears to no longer exist which led to putting this off a lot longer than I’d hoped. Decided to throw myself into it without preparation and the result is below.
I think I wrote more about how it was coming across more than what the sounds were doing and I think that’s okay. It’s not a great bit of writing but it gets something across.
Radiowar’s “The Changing Pattern of Light (Ceremony)” is from Secret of Mana: Resonance of the Pure Land, a Secret of Mana tribute album compiled and released by OverClockd ReMix. This song is a reinterpretation of “Ceremony” (“儀式”) which was composed by Hiroki Kikuta (菊田 裕樹).
I hope you enjoy.
Something warm and seemingly melodic comes this way. There’s a prettiness and sounds shimmer above the warmth. There’s space and slowness and slowly the sound fills out and grows, and it seems peaceful and distorted but there’s a slight undercurrent of ominousness.
There’s beauty and there’s distortion and seemingly the warmth changes and falls under darkness, and cuts and pulses after that shimmering had disappeared, and there’s a pause and moment for experiencing the wonder of it all, but the ominousness remains as it all fades out at the song ends.
