LEAF XCEED Music Division – Summer Breeze
My God. It’s been about three months since my last release for Website Releases II. So many things have been happening and my focus went elsewhere. So you know what I did? I got angry at myself, sat down, plugged in my nanoKEY, played a good melody and TURNED IT INTO A SONG THAT’S WHAT I DID FFS and now it’s done. It ended up being the happiest most complex piano piece I have ever created. Whoa. It’s like the feeling I got when I made Downstream 😄
Anyhow, this song. Yeah, it started out with a good melody I randomly played and thought I could continue it. By that time, I was chatting with Leila, owner of the Murmurs In The Wind blog and asked her to listen to a beta of the song since I couldn’t think of a title. All I could think of was the word “Breeze”. The idea got to her and she visualized, “a story-based game and a scene when your character’s sitting under the shade of a tree with a view of grassy hills and stuff *w*”. It got her to draw the scene itself, but then she was annoyed because whenever she was about to get more ideas, the beta ended there. 😄 I also sent the beta to Patrick, owner of the Apex Ultima blog. It reminded him of Tsukihime (I didn’t play through the whole thing though ^^;) and helped Leila complete her drawing while I continued working.
Eventually I finished the song, and playing at around a minute and thirty seconds, here it is. It was finally decided that the title would be “Summer Breeze”. Makes sense if I have a “Winter Sunshine”, doesn’t it? 😀
