My second Howl's Moving Castle remix, and it is based off of the main theme like last time. This time I took a vastly different look at the theme and basically flipped the atmosphere from winter to spring. I certainly get a warmer feeling and the image of the countryside comes to mind with daffodil flowers blotched here and there and in the distance under an open cyan sky with large, puffy clouds here and there passing by; the sort of clouds that would make you lie in the grass and associate them with animals or creatures or objects.

Excuse the guitar...it's keyboard, not real, which explains the occasional (or perhaps many) mistakes. Original music written by that excellent composer, Joe Hisaishi.

Oh, by the way, the file size is over a meg because the song is 8 minutes and 40 seconds long. Yea.

Instruments used:

Guitar
Oboe
Strings

Been on here for years, had no clue whatsoever you could play music. Awesome. You made my day. And to top it off you quelled my frustration with my chemistry midterms with your chemistry suckitude song and then graciously soothed my aching studying brain with Ghibli music. Thank you.

I think you did a very good job of doing this song-I'm actually trying to learn this song on the piano right now (lol im failing cos i dont read music just do it by ear this isnt the smartest song in the world to do that on)

And I too dont necissarily think this version of the song sounds like spring but maybe like a hot day during summer at a market? lol I have no idea but either way it sounds pretty :)

I've yet to see HMC, but the music seems to be quite catchy. An though it's a simulated guitar, it's a passable imitation... Unlike my old keyboard I just found, on which the guitar simulation sounds like you're trying to play a door with very rusty hinges... =_=
Annnnyway, it makes some good background-essay writing music, and... You'll understand the compliment if you've ever tried to listen to anything really frenetic while writing a paper. (Those papers suffer.)

I can't listen to music or anything while I work on anything. I'll just listen to the music (even ambient music) and doze off. But it's good to know that this is worthy of background music. :D

Heh, I know what you mean by that; I can't listen to music that's uber epic or anything with lyrics... I'll sometimes wind up writing down the lyrics in the middle of an answer. Which is awkward in the middle of a super serious essay.

I don't think it necessarily sounds more "spring"-like, but I've listened to it twice now and you've completely captured the spirit of the movie's music score.

It still reminds me of Winnie the Pooh. XD

Of course you don't think it sounds more spring like. It was my interpretation. We're not identical twins you know, which would be scary considering how different we look. :XD:

You've done a nice job remixing this. However might I suggest not uploading music you've played until it's perfect or as close to perfect as possible? Just for quality's sake.

Thanks! And yea, sorry about that. I'm just so lazy that I don't want to redo a 8 minute song. I don't have a music arranging program; I use a 5 track on an electric keyboard. So it's one recording and then the next instrument one after the other, and most of these songs are a sort of spur of the moment inspiration thing, which means I'm going to forget them unless I get them down right away.

Awesome dA avatar. :XD:

One of the best I've heard yet, actually, though the sound quality could be improved.
