Tsukikanade (月奏)

Author Comments

The title, 'Tsukikanade' (月奏), is Japanese for 'Chanting the Moon.' The title originally belonged to a song by Akiko Shikata, but this time I wanted to evoke a different atmosphere while singing about the moon. Or as some characters in Sauveterrané lore would have it, singing *to* the moon. I worked the tune to this on a piece of paper in front of @IrishChieftain several months ago, and close to submission, had him listen to the work in progress, from the music down to the singing.

I wrote an accompanying piece of back story for the song -- about princesses who came down to play and dance and chase each other in the woods. Best read with the music playing:


Hope you enjoy the song.

This is really nice. You are very talented! I get a sense of Enya mixed with the soundtrack to beautiful mind from this song,

Troisnyx responds:

Eh, thanks ^_^ I did try to be Enya-ish, but I didn't think of layering that many voices in the end. Glad you like it.

I like this tipes of music

Everything about this song is near perfect but there is one thing, I feel like this song is very empty due to the lack of drums. Even if it was just a kick drum every so often.

Troisnyx responds:

Thanks -- perchance a bodhrán beat might add to the atmosphere. I'm trying to visualise it in my head, and I'll admit that it's growing on me a little bit.

nice job! i dont really have any negative criticism, i love it n__n i love the synth sounds, keeps a happy mood on the tune, great job dude.
i also make music n__n;

I put this on and listened as I replied to emails and such and actually forgot this was a loop. It flows so nicely!! I'm looking forward to actually testing out johnfn's mixing tips myself.

It's a shame that you lost everything but at least you put a lot of stuff on Newgrounds that you can download, even if the quality is not lossless.

I love this, good job!
