Gymnopedie [Anime/Game/VN Music Spotlight]

Originally written by French composer Erik Satie in 1888, this classic piano composition is used in a lot of anime, visual novels and games. Like in The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya film or the game Remember Me this is sometimes played as it was originally composed…

…Or, as portrayed in G-senjou no Maou and Persona 2, is recomposed to suit a scene better. Either way this music always brings with it a beautifully calming atmosphere to a story.

For my next anime review put in the comment section if you would prefer a review of The Meloncholy of Haruhi Suzumiya or a review of Gankutsuo – The Count of Monte Cristo, it’s your choice this time.

    Classical music in an anime or game is always a thing of beauty in my eyes… or ears. Additionally, there are also other classical songs which I hear very commonly in anime or games too, ranging From the New World – 4th movement (Noucome, Asura’s Wrath), Toccata and Fugue (Noucome) and Air on a G-string (Fairy Tail, End of Evangelion, Hyouka). And indeed, for the latter, the name of the visual novel G-senjou no Maou (loosely translated to Devil on a G-string) is based on the name of this very classical piece. Talk about unique naming sense.

    Strangely enough, this reminds me of some of Minecraft’s music 0_o Man, it’s been a while since I played that.

      Haha, well if you end up being the only one to vote you’ll probably end up getting your way. Say if I wanted to get more traffic are their any bloggers you would suggest I get in contact with?

        I’m afraid I cannot help you with becoming famous. Judging by the WordPress stats hardly anyone visits my site. When you hit the big time be sure to give my Blog a mention!
