Anybody else loving the BGM?

Post by ZystraL » Sun Jul 05, 2009 9:09 am

Well, I completed KS Act 1 quite a while ago, and got bored a bit one day (read: 2 days ago, just finished all my exams), and decided to open up KS.
Rather thatn going to "New Game" to play it all over, I click "Extras", wondering what would greet me there. After scrolling through some CGs and looking at individual scenes, I looked at the Jukebox.

Oh. My. God.

For a musician like myself, (9 instruments, I play), this was really nice, to be able to sit and listen to all of the works here. I replayed the whole thing, playing the Rin path (I like Parity. downloaded it off the site, cropped a bit and set it as by phone ringtone =P), just to see the context of all the songs, and I'd just like to take my hat off to Blue123 (and any other music composers) for making such amazing music.

My personal favourites are Romance In Andante and Moment Of Descicion. They sound really nice. In fact, I'm attempting (read: failing miserably) to learn Romance In Andante on Piano right now.

I think a while after the full games is released there should be some sort of CD containing all the music or just having it available somewhere It sure would be better to have Romance In Andante in my headphones rather than having the laptop on my piano :) (which is bad because my piano is an upright, not a grand, so there's little space). Who's with me?
I enjoy everything the devs hate. This includes and is not limited to: Pokemon, K-ON! and Lego.

I do like the BGM; I just wish they looped more seamlessly. I think if the music were written in a tracker that wouldn't be an issue, but that's neither here nor there.

"Student Council" is my favorite track; it just has a lot of energy to it.

All time favorite is always Painful History.

As depressing a music track as it is, I have to say one of my favorites is Shadow of the Truth. The mood it projects just fits into the scene that much.

Funny story actually. We all know how Daylight has that wonky twangy bit at the end before it loops. My first playthrough, that lined up nigh-perfectly with Hanako's appearance, and it wasn't until I started visiting the forums that I realized there was supposedly something wrong.

If memory serves correctly, the music was made in FL Studio (fruity Loops). At least that what i remember.

I was just about to make a thread about this, you beat me to it.

The music in this game is nothing short of amazing, my sincere gratitude to the KS composers (Blue123 and NicolArmarfi I believe?) for this.

I love all the tracks, but my favourties (in no particular order) have to be:

Afternoon (especially with Misha and Shizune at the Cafe, holy shit is that beautiful)
Daylight
Raindrops and Puddles
Romance in Andante
Shadow of the Truth
Stride
Wiosna

I think that Wiosna is my overall favourite though, you guys couldn't have put together a better song for the title screen. I forget where, but I found a torrent that had the entire soundtrack on it (sorry if you guys didn't approve of it), I put the music on my Ipod and I work out to it now. I'm a bit wierd like that though, instead of that really loud angry music to get me pumped up, I listen to something like this to inspire me, since I do the whole "white knight" routine.

Seriously again, I can't thank you guys enough for this.

P.S. Make a Misha path :P

I also wondered why nobody had started a "What's your favorite KS music?"-thread by now...

My favorites are:
Moment of Decision
Rain
Raindrops and Puddles
Wiosna
Painfull History
Standing Tall (Although it's written for Emi...)
Afternoon

... I just noticed I'd have to write the whole list. So I'm going to stop here.
(Oh, and "Out of the Loop" is my medicine when I'm unsure about how to spend the remaining time of a day that is already half over in the most... usefull/-less way.)

my personaly favorite is Parity. I like Rin and she gets awesome music to go with it.

...

anyone think it's ironic that shizune gets a theme song yet she could never hear it?

Just crank it up loud enough and she can FEEL it! :mrgreen:

Not quite sure what you're getting at here.
You want to destroy Misha like Carthage?
Or are you just making example of how I always state my need for a Misha path like Cato?

My very favorite is Passing of Time. I could listen to it for hours on end, and have on occasion. It's sad I never get to hear the second half of it during the loading screens or the game itself, 'cause that's the best part. :(

Other favorites include: (In order)
Lullaby of Open Eyes
Painful History (Especially the subtle use of percussive instruments in the second half)
Rain
Aria de l'etoile
Air Guitar
Standing Tall (I think it's really neat how the percussion is the melody in this one. I want to know what instrument is used for that.)

I liked Student Council. A very good piece of work.

My favorite was Raindrops and Puddles. It was simply a charming song. All of the music was great, though.

Blue123, what instruments/programs/etc. do you use?


edit: Cleaned up my post. I was tired so my thoughts were eeeeeeveeeeerywhere.
