More Seven Songs for Seventh Saga! Given the relative brevity of each piece, the album is very digestable in its 18 minute entirety in a single listen, which is nice, but each piece also stands alone as its own experience. Sebastian writes:
""Sky" is the heart of the album and was the track that made me do this album. I start off with my favorite interval: 1 octave + a minor third to support the melody. The second part of the piece is more of a personal take of the theme."
""Sky" hit me with a very somber feel. Maybe the sky is gray here. :-) The melodic lead is consistently worthy of focus, and the countermelodic and accent work. My personal highlight was the subtle yet incredible transition from the melody on solo cello of 2:01's section into the dual cellos from 2:14-2:28. As much as I love Sebastian's fusions of cello with chiptune (e.g. "Fallen Dragoon" & "Echoes of the Forest"), there's nothing quite like the musicianship and beauty of just the three cellos working together. Hopefully someone in games or film snaps Sebastian up for a project worthy of his talents. In that respect, Seven Songs for Seventh Saga is a hell of an audition. I'm proud that Seb chose OCR to be the home for this album, and have to stress again that this is a must-download. It's a short-and-sweet listen at 18 minutes flat, and a unique presentation of a very overlooked soundtrack."
Well said; "Sky" is the piece that started it all & which we have to thank for the album existing, so in that regard alone it's pretty awesome. It's also the album's longest track and has an epic, narrative feeling; very cinematic - I'd LOVE to see what animators/videographers could do with this. "Seven Short Films for Seven Songs for Seventh Saga"? Anyone? While each piece on Seven Songs is brief, and each is of course comprised of three cello parts and nothing else, it's astounding how much substance, grace, emotion, and musicality is channeled. Superb.
