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

Nobuo Uematsu: Terra’s Theme

This was written over three listens. Wasn’t really aiming for anything in particular with this one. Just started with trying to get the start down and let it run from there. End result is a bit of a mess, but … Continue reading
