Relax and Reflect – A Fading Summer’s Eve – FINAL FANTASY XV with sheet music

Music of Final Fantasy XV

The music for the video game Final Fantasy XV, developed and published by Square Enix as the fifteenth mainline entry in the Final Fantasy series, was composed primarily by Yoko Shimomura. Having previously worked on the Kingdom Hearts series, among various other titles, Final Fantasy XV was her first project for the series. Shimomura was brought on board the project in 2006, when it was a spin-off title called Final Fantasy Versus XIII, and stayed in her role during the game’s ten-year development cycle. Her music, based around themes of “friendship” and “filial bonds”, incorporates multiple musical genres, such as orchestral, bossa nova, and American blues. Several tracks, including the main theme “Somnus”, feature Latin lyrics written by the game’s original director Tetsuya Nomura.

Final Fantasy XV was expanded into a multimedia project dubbed the “Final Fantasy XV Universe”, for which other composers were hired; John R. Graham composed the music for the film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, with additional tunes from Shimomura. Yasuhisa Inoue and Susumi Akizuki of Righttrack wrote the music for the original net animation Brotherhood, while a team from the music studio Unique Note, who also worked on the base game, handled the mobile spin-off title Justice Monsters V. English indie rock band Florence and the Machine collaborated on three songs for the game, including a cover of Ben E. King‘s “Stand by Me“, which acted as one of the two official theme songs. Later contributors to the soundtrack, via downloadable content packs, were Keiichi Okabe, Naoshi Mizuta, Yasunori Mitsuda, Nobuo Uematsu, Tadayoshi Makino, and Taku Iwasaki.

Multiple albums have been released containing music from Final Fantasy XV and its spin-off media. Final Fantasy XV Original Soundtrack released in December 2016 in multiple versions, including a four-disc CD release, a Blu-ray release with additional tracks, and a special edition. The standard four-disc release was published internationally in 2017 by Sony Classical Records. The score for Kingsglaive released in September 2016 as a two-disc CD. Other releases include a digital album for Justice Monsters V in September 2016, and limited digital albums for both Kingsglaive and Platinum Demo, a commercial demo acting as a prequel to Final Fantasy XV. The songs from Florence and the Machine were released in August 2016 as digital singles under the banner title “Songs from Final Fantasy XV“. Reception of the albums was generally positive, with the main soundtrack album and Welch’s tracks reaching high positions on music charts.

The game’s official soundtrack album, Final Fantasy XV Original Soundtrack, released first in Japan on December 21, 2016. The album was produced by Koyo Sonae. The soundtrack came in multiple editions. The standard four-disc CD and one-disc Blu-ray releases featured the entire in-game soundtrack with the exception of “Stand by Me”, coming to ninety tracks of music. A limited edition featured two Blu-ray discs and a CD; the first Blu-ray featured the full game soundtrack, the second Blu-ray disc held the track selection from the party’s car radio in addition to Welch’s rendition of “Stand by Me”, while the CD featured versions of selected tracks arranged for piano by Yui Morishita and Takuro Iga. The limited edition also had additional contents including behind-the-scenes footage concerning the recording of the soundtrack. The piano arrangements were performed by Yui Morishita, a noted Japanese pianist. Selected tracks were also included in a “Special Soundtrack” Blu-ray disc released as part of the Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The four-disc edition, which includes all available tracks from that version, was released internationally by Sony Classical Records in 2017. This version was released in Europe on February 24,[63] and in North America on March 24.

The Blu-ray and CD versions both entered the Oricon charts at #35, remaining in the charts for a further nine weeks.[65][66] The album was nominated for the 2017 Game Audio Network Guild’s “Best Original Soundtrack Album” award, though it lost to the soundtrack album for Abzû. Samar Farag of RPGFan was highly positive about the album and its mixture of tracks, saying that the shifts in style captured the game’s theme of a road trip, with the exception of the track “Bros on the Road” which he said was “more appropriate in Sonic Adventure 2“. The rest of the album was generally praised, with the last section’s dark tones and use of leitmotifs from “Somnus”, the environmental track “Valse di Fantastica”, and the character track “Ardyn” earning particular praise. Video Game Music Online’s Lucas Versantvoort gave the album a score of 3/5; while several tracks stood out as being good, he felt there was a lack of cohesive style present in other recent Final Fantasy scores, feeling that it was a lower-quality example of Shimomura’s work than her earlier work on Kingdom Hearts. He also found the other contributors’ work mixed, and disliked the mixture of different musical styles. Both reviewers praised “Somnus” as the album’s best track; Farag said he could “easily call “Somnus” one of Shimomura’s greatest songs”, while Versantvoort felt that it was underused in the soundtrack as a whole.

Aerith’s Theme – Final Fantasy VII エアリスのテーマ with sheet music

final fantasy sheet music pdf

“Aerith’s Theme”

“Aerith’s Theme” (エアリスのテーマ, Earisu no Tēma?) or “Aeris’s Theme”, is Aerith Gainsborough‘s eponymous theme originating from Final Fantasy VII. It was composed by Nobuo Uematsu.

It contains elements of “Aria di Mezzo Carattere” from Final Fantasy VI. Elements of “Aerith’s Theme” independent of “Aria di Mezzo Carattere” are also present in “Yuna’s Theme” from Final Fantasy X.

Nobuo Uematsu’s beautiful theme is one of the most famous pieces of video game music ever written – and deservedly so.

Nobuo Uematsu

is one of the founding fathers of video game music. His work – particularly for the epic Final Fantasy series – has inspired scores of composers and introduced a whole generation to the magic of orchestral music.

Aerith is one of the characters in Final Fantasy VII, and this theme appears during the game at key moments for the character.

The first thing we hear is a yearning melody, gently falling and rising. It’s simple, but memorable – like a song remembered from childhood.

Final Fantasy VII

“Aerith’s Theme” plays three times: during Elmyra Gainsborough‘s flashback where she tells the party of Aerith’s childhood; during the fight with Jenova∙LIFE and during the preceding scene; and when the party remembers Aerith’s sacrifice before raiding the Northern Cave. A short phrase of the theme is heard in the scene where Cloud sees Aerith’s hand reach out for him from the lifestream in the ending. “Flowers Blooming in the Church”

“Flowers Blooming in the Church” is an arrangement of “Aerith’s Theme” that plays as the background theme for the Sector 5 slums church and Aerith’s house in the Sector 5 Slums, as well as in several in-game cutscenes involving Aerith.

“Aerith’s Theme” is the nineteenth track of the Final Fantasy VII: Original Soundtrack third disc; while “Flowers Blooming in the Church” is the twelfth track of the album’s first disc.

Straight on this long, continuing road There is surely something to believe in Like a traveler in the midst of the wind I have my eyes on the northern sky The passionate feelings That were beginning to vanish Once again sway in radiance in my chest I don’t want the tears to spill As so not to lose to my weaker self In eyes holding only an unadorned spirit There are great Unseen wings I open my arms while singing To embrace the perpetuity of time To be tied to life Straight on this long, continuing road There is surely something to believe in

eyes on me final fantasy sheet music pdf

Eyes on me (FF VIII)

“Eyes on Me” is the theme song of Final Fantasy VIII. Composed by Nobuo Uematsu, English lyrics by Kako Someya, and performed by Hong Kong pop diva Faye Wong, with the song going on to sell a record breaking 400,000 copies. It also won “Song of the Year (Western Music)” at the 14th Annual Japan Gold Disc Awards in 1999. This was the first time a song from a video game has ever won the honor.

“Eyes on Me” is featured in this 2004 album, titled 夏のアルバム -Eyes On Me 日本語Ver. (Natsu no arubamu -Eyes On Me nihongo Ver.?, lit. Summer’s Album -Eyes on Me Japanese ver.). Arranged for vocals by Yuji Hasegawa, it was sung in Japanese by Manami Kiyota.

Game appearances

Final Fantasy VIII

The central melody of “Eyes on Me” plays each time Squall and Rinoa share a romantic scene. Different in-game versions of the theme include “Julia”, a piano arrangement that plays in Deling City hotel during a flashback, as well as in the Shumi Village inn, and “Waltz for the Moon”, a waltz arrangement that plays during the SeeD inauguration ball. “Eyes on Me” plays in the Ragnarok during Squall and Rinoa’s journey back to earth. An orchestrated version of the song is incorporated on the game’s ending theme.

Event planner Hiroki Chiba made the event where Squall and Rinoa are inside the Ragnarok when the song plays. Chiba had to adjust it frame by frame so that everything would be in sync with the song.[1]

“Eyes on Me” was included in the Final Fantasy VIII: Original Soundtrack album as the twentieth track of the third disc. “Waltz for the Moon” and “Julia” are, respectively, the sixteenth and twentieth tracks of the soundtrack’s first disc.

Story

“Eyes on Me” was written by Julia Heartilly about her love for Laguna Loire. Laguna, a Galbadian soldier, fell in love with Julia, a hotel lounge pianist. Laguna would frequent the lounge to watch her play but, being notoriously shy and clumsy, could never convey his feelings to her. She felt the same way, but his nervousness made it difficult for her to let him know.

One night Laguna tried to approach her and although his nerves got the better of him, Julia invited him to her room where the two told each other how they felt. Julia admitted she wanted to sing and that she could write a song about Laguna, despite her previous difficulty in composing lyrics. “Eyes on Me” is that song, and the feelings conveyed in it are her feelings for him. Laguna was called away to a mission and the two would never see each other again.

Laguna and Julia’s love is echoed in Squall Leonhart and Rinoa Heartilly’s romance, significant as Julia is Rinoa’s mother and Laguna is Squall’s father. Thus their failed romance is fulfilled through their children.

The song may have become a classic within the world of Final Fantasy VIII, as a waltz version plays at the SeeD inauguration ball, a different arrangement plays at an impromptu concert at Fishermans Horizon, and the theme plays on the radio as far away as the isolated Shumi Village, all many years after the song was composed.

Lyrics

Whenever sang my songs
On the stage, on my own
Whenever said my words
Wishing they would be heard
I saw you smiling at me
Was it real or just my fantasy
You'd always be there in the corner
Of this tiny little bar

My last night here for you
Same old songs, just once more
My last night here with you?
Maybe yes, maybe no
I kind of liked it your way
How you shyly placed your eyes on me
Did you ever know
That I had mine on you?

Darling, so there you are
With that look on your face
As if you're never hurt
As if you're never down
Shall I be the one for you
Who pinches you softly but sure
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer

So let me come to you
Close as I wanna be
Close enough for me
To feel your heart beating fast
And stay there as I whisper
How I loved your peaceful eyes on me
Did you ever know
That I had mine on you?

Darling, so share with me
Your love if you have enough
Your tears if you're holding back
Or pain if that's what it is
How can I let you know
I'm more than the dress and the voice?
Just reach me out, then
You will know that you are not dreaming

Darling, so there you are
With that look on your face
As if you're never hurt
As if you're never down
Shall I be the one for you
Who pinches you softly but sure
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer

Final Fantasy X : The game

Final Fantasy X is a role-playing video game developed and published by Square as the tenth main entry in the Final Fantasy series. Originally released in 2001 for PlayStation 2, the game was re-released as Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2013, for PlayStation 4 in 2015, Microsoft Windows in 2016, and for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in 2019. The game marks the Final Fantasy series transition from entirely pre-rendered backdrops to fully three-dimensional areas (though some areas were still pre-rendered), and is also the first in the series to feature voice acting.

The story of Final Fantasy X is one of the best stories ever told in the franchise, if not the entirety of gaming. The story takes several twists and turns that somehow make sense in the context of the game’s world — something that can’t be said for the majority of Final Fantasy games.

The overarching theme of loss contrasts perfectly with the love story of Tidus and Yuna, with the melancholic ending being the perfect cherry on top of this absolutely brilliant treat of a storyline.

Final Fantasy X replaces the Active Time Battle (ATB) system with the “Conditional Turn-Based Battle” (CTB) system, and uses a new leveling system called the “Sphere Grid”.

finAL FANTASY sheet music pdf

Set in the fantasy world of Spira, a setting influenced by the South Pacific, Thailand and Japan, the game’s story revolves around a group of adventurers and their quest to defeat a rampaging monster known as Sin. The player character is Tidus, a star athlete in the fictional sport of blitzball, who finds himself in Spira after Sin destroyed his home city of Zanarkand. Shortly after arriving to Spira, Tidus joins the summoner Yuna on her pilgrimage to destroy Sin.

However, it must be said that Final Fantasy X is one of the best names one can take in this regard. The first Final Fantasy game on the PlayStation 2 was also one of the very best titles in the franchise, integrating modern nuances with classic Final Fantasy tropes and elements to create something truly magical.

Of course, nothing is perfect, and the same goes for Final Fantasy X. However, there are several strong points that one can make when it comes to announcing this title as the best Final Fantasy title, along with certain negative aspects that make it fall short of this goal. Here are five points each to solidify both sides of the argument.

Development of Final Fantasy X began in 1999, with a budget of more than US$32.3 million (US$49.6 million in 2019 dollars) and a team of more than 100 people. The game was the first in the main series not entirely scored by Nobuo Uematsu; Masashi Hamauzu and Junya Nakano were signed as Uematsu’s fellow composers. Final Fantasy X was both a critical and commercial success, selling over 8.5 million units worldwide on PlayStation 2. It is considered to be one of the greatest video games of all time. On March 13, 2003, it was followed by Final Fantasy X-2, making it the first Final Fantasy game to have a direct game sequel.

FINAL FANTASY X : THE MUSIC

Final Fantasy games are generally known for sporting excellent music, with the legendary Nobuo Uematsu contributing to some of the most iconic scores in video game history. Final Fantasy X is no exception to this rule, with everything from bombastic battle themes to calming tunes omnipresent throughout one’s journey through Spira.

Watching the touching scene between Tidus and Yuna while Suteki Da Ne is playing in the background is truly one of the most moving sequences in video game history.

Final Fantasy X marks the first time regular series composer Nobuo Uematsu has had any assistance in composing the score for a game in the main series. His fellow composers for Final Fantasy X were Masashi Hamauzu and Junya Nakano. They were chosen for the soundtrack based on their ability to create music that was different from Uematsu’s style while still being able to work together. PlayOnline.com first revealed that the game’s theme song was completed in November 2000. As Square still had not revealed who would sing the song, GameSpot personally asked Uematsu, who jokingly answered “It’s going to be Rod Stewart.”

The game features three songs with vocalized elements, including the J-pop ballad “Suteki da ne“, which translates to “Isn’t it Wonderful?”. The lyrics were written by Kazushige Nojima, and the music was written by Uematsu. The song is performed by Japanese folk singer Rikki, whom the music team contacted while searching for a singer whose music reflected an Okinawan atmosphere. “Suteki da ne” is also sung in Japanese in the English version of Final Fantasy X.

Like “Eyes on Me” from Final Fantasy VIII and “Melodies of Life” from Final Fantasy IX, an orchestrated version of “Suteki da ne” is used as part of the ending theme. The other songs with lyrics are the heavy metal opening theme, “Otherworld”, sung in English by Bill Muir; and “Hymn of the Fayth”, a recurring piece sung using Japanese syllabary.

The original soundtrack spanned 91 tracks on four discs. It was first released in Japan on August 1, 2001, by DigiCube, and was re-released on May 10, 2004, by Square Enix. In 2002, Tokyopop released a version of Final Fantasy X Original Soundtrack in North America entitled Final Fantasy X Official Soundtrack, which contained 17 tracks from the original album on a single disc.

Other related CDs include feel/Go dream: Yuna & Tidus which, released in Japan by DigiCube on October 11, 2001, featured tracks based on Tidus’ and Yuna’s characters. Piano Collections Final Fantasy X, another collection of music from the game,and Final Fantasy X Vocal Collection, a compilations of exclusive character dialogues and songs were both released in Japan in 2002.

The Black Mages, a band led by Nobuo Uematsu that arranges music from Final Fantasy video games into a rock music style, have arranged three pieces from Final Fantasy X. These are “Fight With Seymour” from their self-titled album, published in 2003, and “Otherworld” and “The Skies Above”, both of which can be found on the album The Skies Above, published in 2004. Uematsu continues to perform certain pieces in his Dear Friends: Music from Final Fantasy concert series.

The music of Final Fantasy X has also appeared in various official concerts and live albums, such as 20020220 Music from Final Fantasy, a live recording of an orchestra performing music from the series including several pieces from the game. An odd note; the unreleased/promo CD-R (Instrumental) version of Madonna’s “What It Feels Like For A Girl” done by Tracy Young was used in the blitzball sequences. Additionally, “Swing de Chocobo” was performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra for the Distant Worlds – Music from Final Fantasy concert tour, while “Zanarkand” was performed by the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra in the Tour de Japon: Music from Final Fantasy concert series.

Independent but officially licensed releases of Final Fantasy X music have been composed by such groups as Project Majestic Mix, which focuses on arranging video game music. Selections also appear on Japanese remix albums, called dojin music, and on English remixing websites.
