Michiko Naruke: Sand Clouds, Surging Away

Two listens for this one. I tried to focus more on describing the song and I feel that was not a good idea. I started thinking about the quality of the sounds used a little too much and it threw … Continue reading

Stara Rzeka: BHMTH (czyli historia z wujkiem Albertem)

There was a period of time where I was listening to this song a lot. It has been a while since then and in the intervening time between then and now I’ve listened to the song only a small handful … Continue reading

Yoshino Aoki: Prayer

This one was one I found tough. It might be due to how late in the evening it currently is, but for whatever reason it took three listens for me to get this out. Probably was thinking too much. Anyway, … Continue reading

Masashi Hamauzu: The Archylte Steppe

When I started doing this one I thought I’d have an easy go with rambling on. In now having just done the writing I feel that that was not quite the case. I think I stumbled a bit as I … Continue reading

Duster: Moon Age

This one was written over three listens. I went more for imagery with this one. It was slow starting, but I picked up speed and wrote most of this quite quickly. I probably could’ve gone for something a bit more … Continue reading

Nobuo Uematsu: The Boundless Ocean

Almost feel like I’m writing more bad poetry with this one. Six listens. I probably could’ve gotten more out of this one, but it’s a rather short tune. Nobuo Uematsu’s () “The Boundless Ocean” (“果てしなき大海原”) is from the soundtrack for … Continue reading

Tarô Iwashiro: Breath of Fire IV ~ Opening Animation

This was written over four, though maybe five listens. There were some pauses, though the song is quite short. I tried to strike a balance between imagery I was getting and what was happening in the song. The imagery was … Continue reading
