ACE+: Mechonis Field

Alright, so with this one I was looking to just describe what I could and see where it went. It took two listens and didn’t produce anything I’m neither content nor discontent with. ACE+’s “Mechonis Field” (“機神界フィールド”) is from Xenoblade … Continue reading

Yoko Shimomura: Colony 9

This one was difficult to write and I think it was due to overthinking. Four listens, but a lot of restarts early on in the first due to having a bit of trouble finding my footing. I stuck mostly to … Continue reading

Yasunori Mitsuda: Reincarnation

Three listens for this one. Once more I just went with whatever, but I struggled on a few parts and had to think about what it was that I was saying. Yasunori Mitsuda’s (光田 康典) “Reincarnation” is from Sailing To … Continue reading

Motoi Sakuraba: We Form in Crystals

I’ve wanted to write about this one for a while, but  kept on forgetting about it. It’s an interesting song. Very straightforward in ways, but also carries an air of mystery, so to speak. This was written over one listen. … Continue reading

Masami Ueda: Shinshu Plains

This was written over one listen, but I had to restart the song a few times due to issues with getting my footing. Oh well. Not sure what I went for and this really is brief for what the song … Continue reading

Yasunori Mitsuda: Chronopolis

Two listens for this one. I wanted to write about this song for a little while, but I probably should’ve done it in the morning when I’d be less tired than I am now. I feel I should’ve given this … Continue reading

Memorex Memories: Pictures of Purple Skies

One listen which is what I’m aiming for. A few pauses, though that’s due to current hearing issues, but anyway. I aimed mostly to not describe imagery. Not sure if I succeeded and I don’t particularly care if I did … Continue reading

Camera Obscura: Cinematheque

Two listens with a restart a small part into the way of one of them. With this one I started looking to talk about what the instrumentation was doing but stopped doing that really quickly and instead talked about what … Continue reading

Peter Gabriel: Fourteen Black Paintings

This was slowly written over three listens. I was aiming to avoid imagery (I think) and I mostly succeeded. Still, this doesn’t say too much about the song, though maybe that’s okay. I hope you enjoy. — Woodwind comes in, … Continue reading
