In Extremis

Soundtrack Saturday: Sep.12

Ypx here—today we’re going to be listening to “Meditation” from Opoona.

Released for Nintendo Wii in 2007, Opoona is a role-playing game where you control the titular hero and family to rescue the rest of his family. The game features many former Square, Enix, and Square-Enix notables from games like Dragon Quest, and the composer of Final Fantasy XII Hitoshi Sakimoto.

A beautiful and ambient track, Meditation invokes its namesake with plenty of pad-like textures to start with. After a couple of soft piano chords, we get some percussion that fades in while the pads fade out. Our melody is in a very 80s-like synth pad at first, then in a more digital and woodwind pair. Just beautiful and tranquil.
