On 27 October I hurriedly sat down to doing MusicWeeklies' Disasterpeace Challenge, where participants were encouraged to make a musical theme of any kind while drawing influence from a particular video game's tonality.

I chose Kingdom Hearts II, no surprise there. Well, Kingdom Hearts in general to be fair. This one has got The Other Promise plastered all over it, as well as a number of Birth by Sleep melodic themes and the field theme from Monstro as other influences.

I came up with this almost as if with a snap of the fingers as soon as I heard The Other Promise, and I wasn't going to simply let it slip by. I began and finished it in a single night.

This reminds me of the Shop theme in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness...I regret never beating KH2...I liked 1 better because it had more focus on Disney villians and the Heartless. The Nobodies and hooded dudes were...weird. But, I still gotta beat it damnit. 9000 edits later...

1:18-1:19, there is an articulation hiccup on the oboe/english horn(?). But the other elements are teh perfect. Super minor gripe...

Troisnyx responds:

Personally, I much prefer Kingdom Hearts 1 and I do think it still is the best game in the entire series, so I feel perhaps a bit the way you do regarding Kingdom Hearts 2.

I think I know what you mean about the hiccup, some wondered if it was an artifact but I'm not honestly sure. Otherwise, I'm glad you enjoyed it. ^_^

I am super unfamiliar with any of the kingdom hearts series' music, so I can't comment on how well you followed the theme, but this was a fun listen nonetheless!

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you, Ian ❤️☺️ I oughtta link you to The Other Promise at some point, since this was the strongest influence on this track.

This really moved me.
5/5, nice melody.

Troisnyx responds:

That is very kind of you, Trandafir. ❤️ Thank you.


I love how you just pluck this stuff out of thin air. Definite Kingdom Hearts vibes. I wish I was as prolific as you!

Troisnyx responds:

Quick-fire tonality helps in these matters, I think. Chords were easy enough to lay down, what took more time was the melody which needed a bit of playing round with.

Time and practice, and I imagine we'll get the swing of it. ^_^
