Well, I decided to take a quick detour from composing for Aeterna and do a remix of a song from a video game. So, I remembered Earthbound. Not only did its game play and quirky story catch my attention, but its music was (in my opinion) fantastic. The one song from the game that stuck out for me was the melody which was brought together piece by piece during the course of the game. This melody hit me hard, and I've always wanted to do an arrangement of it...so I did this evening. I feel really strongly about this piece and am extremely proud how it turned out.
Note: it starts slow by giving the main melody on the glockenspiel alone, but don't be fooled. Soon the harp comes in, then the strings...
So please, enjoy, listen, and let the melody of Your Sanctuaries fill your heart.
