Yasunori Mitsuda: To Far Away Times

I don’t know what I was going for here. I feel as though I got stuck and tried to get down whatever I could. I think I should have considered cohesion a bit more, but I didn’t and now this. … Continue reading

Yasunori Mitsuda: Secret of the Forest

One listen for this one. I thought I was going to get a fair bit more out and interweave more imagery related to forests, but I did not and instead the result feels really brief. Yasunori Mitsuda’s (光田 康典) “Secret … Continue reading

Junya Nakano: Guadosalam

One listen for this one. However, there were a few pauses toward the end. This was in part due to being a bit thrown off by this song not looping. Normally when it comes to game soundtracks the song will … Continue reading
