Re: Piano Sheet Music?

I want to point out something strange, the bonus track Nicol released (When It's Hard to Smile) sounds very similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydQdDbYjQY8 (A piano arrangement of Shanhai Alice of Meiji 17 from Touhou 6) Sounds more like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZivx3zYSc...

Re: Ask!

What was Innocence supposed to be ? I get a mix of both happiness and sadness hearing it. Aura asked me to write Innocence after he heard another track of mine . I'm not really sure what his exact intentions were for the piece, but I was just instructed to make it as similar to the original as I co...

Re: For Nicol..

You sir, are a true genius. As much as I loved the writing, the art and all the other elements of KS, I feel as if the musical score was the most gripping and tone setting of it all. I just want to thank you for composing and writing such beautiful pieces that deliver every time the game hits a cli...

Re: Piano Sheet Music?

Hey Nicol, since you composed both songs, are Innocence and Red Velvet related? Red Velvet kept reminding me of another song on the soundtrack, and I just happened to put the two right after one another and they sound remarkably similar. Great job on all the music, really makes me feel things I hav...

Re: Ask!

Do you have any suggestions of other instrumental music that I might enjoy since I like the music in KS (a very subjective question I know but just shoot out some right off the top of your head perhaps to give me a general direction to start looking)? What kind of music influenced you when composin...

Re: Piano Sheet Music?

I've been playing these songs ever since I found this thread. They're all a lot of fun. I especially like "When it's hard to smile," but I've noticed that it's not in the OST. Did that one not end up making the cut for the final game? I can't think of a worse way to make my first post on a forum th...

Re: Ask!

Question 1: Ah Eh I Oh You ... what sort of mood were the composers for this tune trying to evoke in first-time listeners? Was the piece intended to be a red herring? Or am I alone in thinking that the song sounds kinda menacing? Question 2: Stride ... So my first question again, this time for Nico...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Soundtrack Up for Download

It's the only reason I can think of why delta is so against a wang version. There can't be a lossless version because I never made lossless versions, and I lost the project files so I can't ever make lossless versions. Personally I don't care much about things like bitrate, but I understand some pe...

Re: Ask!

You may like it, but dosent it feel different to you, when making/doing something for yourself, and doing it for others ? You know if you like the music you make, you know how it feels. But you cant be sure others will feel the same and enjoy it, like you do/did. True, lots of people seem happy, an...

Re: Ask!

Why make KS ? You had no obligation to, you get nothing in return, it took lots of time and effort, and some of you have jobs, that have nothing to do with games or VNs. So some of you wont even be able to use KS, to show what they can do, if they wanted a certain job. I certainly can't speak for a...

Re: Ask!

The similarity is uncanny. Is it on purpose that you guys referenced a track from Planetarian? Nope. I've gotten a lot of comments of this sort before (compare this with this for example), but most of the time the similarities were not intentional. There is a fairly lengthy quote of O'Canada in the...

Re: Ask!

Now, my next question, did you, Blue, and Juno started working on the game's music post production or during production and how long did you took to complete the game's soundtrack? Also, how did you guys got on the team? Did you ask to join the team for music or did somebody ask you to join. All mu...

Re: Ask!

Does Nicol Armarfi have a website? I just found his music pretty interesting and would like to follow his work. (Google is only giving me a dead site.) I don't have a website, but you can check out my youtube page, which I update quite frequently: http://youtube.com/nicolarmarfi4 What happened to "...

Re: Ask!

A question to Nichol, which BGM is each cutscene's piano arrangement based on? I know Shizune's is The Student Council, and Hanako's is Puddles and Raindrops, but I can't put my finger on Lilly's or Rin's. Another thing I'd like to know is if there's full versions of of these arrangements. They're ...
