Original: Spring Lane ~ Colorful Path
From Touhou 9: Phantasmagoria of Flower View
Theme of Reimu Hakurei
Composed by ZUN
Vanilla Arrangement

Life is a beautiful thing. Music is one such pleasure that is, depending on who you ask, the very definition of human artistic expression. No other species can create music (at least like we do). Sometimes, you just have to sit back and relax... to take a moment to enjoy the inner workings and complexities of sound. ZUN is one such man that truly understands the intricacies involved in what makes simple noises a symphony to behold upon your ears. I wanted to go absolutely crazy on this song, warping its structure and beauty into something just as grand... but you know what? This is one of the special things that makes Touhou itself so wondrous, and I wouldn't dare change a thing.

Honestly, this is beautiful. 5 stars as always.

MeisterMach5 responds:

My only regret is that I didn't go crazy with the composition and wildly change its structure. But if I did, I would've regretted that too, since I would've felt like my version wouldn't have compared to the original.

That won't stop me from making my own instruments for the song though XD
