…Following the topic of Key self-references, but focused on the music side of it, let me share this:
Minutes ago I was enjoying “Kaisōroku” (回想録 Reminiscence), it’s the AIR anime piano melody that was used in the intro of the series. – Anyway, while I was listening I suddenly felt that the notes were like a reminiscence of Planetarian’s Gentle Jena, the VN. So, I got curious about its composer… and for my surprise (since I was expecting Maeda or Orito in the credits) the composer was Magome Togoshi. I didn’t knew he contributed to AIR!
A few weeks ago I was playing the OST from Planetarian quite a bit, because I really like it. And now I’m glad to see that he collaborated for the AIR anime OST.
No, I’m not implying a link between those two stories, since I can’t really see a serious bridge between. It’s just a curiosity. What I find interesting, like someone stated in the self-references thread, is that every composer has their very own music style.
He is a good composer in my opinion, heart touching. Complements very well to the excellent music by Jun Maeda and S.Orito among others. Don’t you think?
Very interesting, thanks for sharing the info Pepe. I didn’t knew. I’ll start to pay more attention to the lyrics.
P.S.: Thanks @Yerian for taking the time of moving this here if you feel it helps to keep things more granular. There are times when the main topic isn’t clear and a decision should be made.
