Title: White Lotus...～Piano
Circle: Liz Triangle
Album: White Lotus
Original: 感情の摩天楼 ～ Cosmic Mind (Emotional Skyscraper ~ Cosmic Mind)
Well, well, I wouldn't have guessed that I'd be featuring a vocal arrange so soon, and especially not of Byakuren's theme.
Now I can officially say Byakuren and her theme are somewhere very close to my top 10.
Scratch that, she certainly is in my top 10, such a beautiful and peaceful gal...
It's not surprising, Byakuren's design is extremely beautiful, god, ZUN, you don't cease to surprise me. To be noted is also how beautiful Byakuren looks in certain art works, especially on album covers, I knew, the first time I saw her that she'd look gorgeous in art works.
Now, now, I never knew Liz Triangle did such beautiful stuff, I downloaded this since Myon recommended it saying there where nice vocals. I download it, and the next thing I hear after a Pirates of the Caribbean x Murasa arrange is this beautiful track... There are actually 2 arranges, a punchi punchi one and this calming one.
"From the quiet heartbeat, suddenly it feels like the world is opening up."
Seriously, the tool called "vocal" is a double-edged axe, use it badly and it can backfire, greatly. Use it in the right way and you get some pretty beautiful, badass, amazing or whatever adjective you want to attribute to it, stuff, take this for example... haha... I'm all teary-eyed...
Now, I seriously think I should check out some of Liz Triangle's other stuff, heck, maybe I can find something else like this.
Cosmic Mind captured my heart the moment I listened to it, I love it, certainly my top UFO track, no doubt about it. A song that I'd say is perfect for epic orchestras, but this arrange says otherwise. Calming arranges seem perfect too, maybe an acoustic arrange?
"It's overall fairly melodiously Japanese, and I tried to make the melody of
the main part like one of those songs where everyone's singing."
I'm not really sure about the Japanesque feeling, I don't really feel it, although yes I can understand the "everyone's singing" part. Now look what you did, ZUN. I WANT AN EPIC CHORUS ARRANGE!!! MORRIGAN WHERE ARE YOUUUUU!!!
I read some suggestions about another poltergeist in charge of vocal arranges. Sincerely I don't think that's really needed, I think us 3 can integrate some vocals with the playlists, heck, Myon has already uploaded several, and Chaos has 1 or 2. Well as long as the vocals are nice, soothing, like these you can expect some future stuff.
