Here it is, the second part of my Kimi no Na wa. medley!
It was only after I finished recording that I realized that... This is my longest arrangement to date! Surprisingly, this is also the first time I've given absolutely no thought about the length of an arrangement while arranging it-- 100% of the content I added/removed were influenced by how well they fit into the song. This might already seem like a natural way of thinking, but, there are many times when I ask myself questions like, "How do I make this piece longer?", or "Will this make the piece too long?". I'm pretty glad that I'm starting to break this habit :]
This arrangement took me around a month to complete. The most difficult challenge I faced had to be arranging the climax of Sparkle. Not only did I have to build up from the quietest part of the song, I also had to somehow transition to the really epic and grand climax--and in 8 measures at that! (That's a very long build up time if you ask me). In the end, I feel like I did it justice, and I hope you guys think so too!
About the animation: this one took me a week and a half to create. Every single day, after I'd get home from class, I would go straight to Photoshop to work on this. It was extremely difficult to upscale the second scene because of two things:
1. The reference I was using was 360p.
2. nothing in that scene is meant to be blurred, meaning everything had to look crisp and clear.
Because of this, I had to guess what many of the details were... Which was a huge pain in the ass OTL. Nonetheless, I learned a lot from Makoto Shinkai, and I hope to learn more from his beautiful works.
Tell me in the comments which cover you guys would like to see next: Koe no Katachi's main theme, March comes in like a lion OST, or Kimi no Na wa Medley III (Yumetourou and Zen Zen Zense). I'm really tempted to arrange old anime songs, so keep on giving me suggestions for those too if you have any!
Time to rest a bit until I start the next piece.
See you all soon,
Be sure to read the README before playing!
A "thank you" comment would make my day ;)
