Joe Hisaishi: Promise… For Us

Writing this was mostly straightforward. There was a part where I went back for a moment as I wasn’t sure as to when a sound started and so wanted to make sure, but I could’ve waited for the song to … Continue reading

Joe Hisaishi: Island Song

I wrote about this song last night and I found the result to be more lacking than usual so I decided to see if I could do better today. The result is similar but it reads better I feel. There’s … Continue reading

Hiroshi Yamaguchi: Sei-an City (Commoners’ Quarter)

This one was both a struggle and not and I’m not sure why and it doesn’t really matter. I feel I was able to get enough out of the track, but maybe not the right stuff. Hiroshi Yamaguchi’s (山口裕史) “Sei-an … Continue reading

Big Dead: Bellbird

One listen for this one. I was trying to go for something. I think I was trying to get across the feel and flow of the song more than anything else, but I don’t think either came across too well. … Continue reading

Over two listens this was written. I think I was going for a blend. Really not sure, but I think the writing is smoother than usual. Nobuo Uematsu’s (植松 伸夫) “Over the Hill” (“あの丘を越えて”) is also known as “Crossing Those … Continue reading
