Morning of Yesterday

Hey guys! Another track finished ^w^. It will be a while before I will be able to post any other tracks, because of me having surgery soon. Though I hope I’ll be able to work on music while I am recovering, I don’t know if I will be able to. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this song, and make sure to share with your friends if you like it 🙂

Awesome Kalafina Piano Medley

Hey peeps! Today one of my favorite piano YouTube players, SirOkihs, upload a 30-minute medley of songs by one of my favorite music groups, Kalafina. I don’t normally share things like this, but I thought this piano medley was really good (for lack of a better word), and both encapsulates the type of music I like, and where I would eventually want to be in terms of piano. Enjoy! 😁

If you don’t want to listen to the entire medley, some parts I would recommend are snow falling (8:29), Yane no Mukou ni/屋根の向こうに (15:33), Musunde Hiraku/むすんでひらく (20:42), sprinter (23:04), and neverending (26:25)

Frozen Time

Composition/Arrangement/Lyrics: Westkana
Vocal: TBA

This song is part of a collaboration with a friend. We’re making our own opening animation to an anime that we together came up with, and this is the full version of the song (compared to the short version posted earlier). I’m composing the song, and he will be doing the video now that I’m finished with my part. He also has a friend who may sing the lyrics when it’s finished, so look forward to the completed project! ^w^

Make sure to like, share, and follow! ^w^

Lyrics (Piano Lead):

Standing in blankness, I see now
Time is frozen

If every word was just a lie,
Could you still let them
Intrude your sky?

A little thing;
It seems meager
But it still can cause
The pot to stir

Facing everything
I can’t speak
Darkness and fear ’round me
Confused;
Where are we?
I’m trapped in this pirouette

Piercing gales push us down roads too great to try to retrace
Fighting on towards that one day where we will gain freedom
Skies above like pure cerulean spring mornings
Stretching vainly on
to that guiding star
In daydreams of frozen time

Misunderstandings
They’re just trite
Causing everything
To end in strife

Facing everything
I can’t speak
Fragile glass;
Let it be
Shards all ’round
They’ll rip you into
A thousand pieces

There’s no time
To waste on needless binds
Just let go,
It won’t restart frozen mind

Blinding winds, they blow gently
Down the path that we’ve long faced
Fighting on towards that one light up on the horizon
Skies above shine with evanescent soft twilight
Stretching on to that distant star
Wrapped in sweet chaos of frozen time

Frozen Time ~short ver~

Fighting on towards that one day where we can have freedom
Skies above like a cerulean spring morning
Stretching vainly on
to that guiding star
In daydreams of frozen time

Transcendence

My first finished composition ^w^. A relaxing piano track with some influence from some of the artists I enjoy listening to. Hopefully it’s not too shabby. Enjoy!! I’ve been much more into arranging/composing/playing music lately, so expect more of that content from now on compared to the photo edits of before. Despite that, the photo used in the soundcloud/youtube link was taken by me.

Birthday post, I guess :P

This year I wasn’t planning to do a birthday post, not until this happened to come up while I was playing with a friend on Animal Crossing: New Leaf last night. In the game, K.K. Slider (the guitar- wielding dog pictured above) plays songs for you on his guitar on Saturday nights, and you can request songs for him to play. If it happens to be the Saturday prior to your birthday, then he will play a special song that can only be played/requested then: K.K. Birthday. Afterwards was where this screenshot was taken, when he said “happy birthday from the music”. Now, I know this sounds like a big hippie-style quote and K.K. is portrayed as somewhat of a hippie, but it still doesn’t change the message. Since music means a lot to me, probably being one of the things that is most sacred to me, when this line was spoken I got goosebumps XD. It’s not every year you get wished a happy birthday by a shapeless/formless concept. Anyway, thanks for reading me ramble on for a paragraph.

Here’s K.K. Birthday if anyone wants to listen to it
