This week I ended up arranging two pieces of music from “How To Train Your Dragon 2” (bet you thought I was talking about the NES game with the post title, hehe^^)… The first is a piano arrangement of my favorite theme from the movie: “Flying With Mother.”
And the second is a purely vocal arrangement of the ending credits song: “Where No One Goes.” (both composed by John Powell, the latter performed by Jónsi)
I greatly enjoyed this film as well as its music… I left the theater full of emotion. I think they did a great job with the story; the characters felt real and multi-dimensional… Their insecurities and shortcomings were so relatable. And I must say that I was overjoyed to have several flying dreams (that were undoubtably sparked by the film) over the following nights^^
The 2nd video marks a bit of relief for me… As many of you know, I got very sick this season which turned into laryngitis and a long-lasting cough. Even after I recovered from being sick, my voice was still affected (my pitch was off, and my voice would hurt and feel strained even after singing just one song). I was so worried that my voice was permanently damaged from the cough, and that I’d never sing the same again. But just this week (months after first getting sick), I’d discovered that things were finally back to normal again… I can’t tell you how relieved and how thankful I was to be able to sing again.
So for those who were supportive and patient during this time, thank-you. Being able to sing again also means that I can finally get back to recording the vocal parts for the Rakuen soundtrack that have been postponed for so long! Rakuen had its first pre-beta test this month, and is moving along smoothly! I will make sure to keep you all updated… we’re hoping to release a trailer soon ^_^
