One of the first rpg games I played as a child was Final Fantasy X which made a huge impression to me at the time. Game has been said to be one of the best Final Fantasy games of all the time.
To honor composer of this wonderful game, Nobuo Uematsu, I decided to start make a remake series of it to youtube. I shall be recreating most notable and best Final Fantasy song from the start.
I'm fully aware that I'm not the first to do remakes and there's even an official remastered soundtrack, but I still think that there is something missing, some things which were not taken in while the new remastered was made.
Silence Before The Storm is one of my favourite track from the Final Fantasy X OST because of its serenity and enchanting atmosphere. It fits perfectly into the forest environment and makes you curious about your surroundings in the game world. It plays in two locations: Kilika Forest and Malacania. I can personally listen this composition for hours and get immersed into the world of Spira.
I think the official remake did not do this song any justice, that is why I tried to mimic the great feel this song gave in its pure original version + adding some own elements into the mix.
This music has a lot of nostalgic value to me and making this remakes has been an interesting voyage. I hope you enjoy!
