I turned on my system to make this update and I'm greeted with half a screen. Lovely... Just lovely. I suppose this is to balance out the festivities brought about by my cousin's marriage tomorrow.
Just Ask a Fairy features that familiar theme we all hear when we start an adventure, i.e. the save slot creation screen. Again, that acoustic guitar brings the bard-near-a-campfire feel. Truth be told, the percussions seem a bit out of place in this ethereal piece. It was as if Beethoven had placed brasswinds in the first movement of his Piano Concerto No. 4 in G, Op. 58.
The Lost Woods is far more daring in its arrangement. The slower tempo offers a more foreboding feel than the original, or at least during the opening segment. The coupling of traditional-sounding drums and distortions evoke the image of an electronic jungle, above which a lone flute soars with the melody. Truly an exquisite piece.
I'd really love to chat a bit more, but my patience wears thin due to my current technical difficulties. I can't guarantee an update next week, as it will fall on the day before Christmas, but I'll try my best. Since I might not have the chance to greet you guys next week, allow me to greet you now. Merry Christmas! Have an awesome weekend!
