My middle school orchestra teacher has this hanging in her room. It’s fantastic.
This is what it sounds like. REALLY good song.
My friend keeps practising it. Fucking amazing. I’m fairly certain the music got written by someone doodling geometric figures on a sheet of music paper and then realizing they’d actually written the song of the gods.
Boss music. This is boss music.
The ending is super creepy what how even I do not
ACTUALLY YOU’RE ALL RIGHT. LET ME CLARIFY I AM PRETTY TIRED OF PEOPLE MIXING THIS UP SO BEAR WITH ME:
The sheet music and the music in the link are not the same song; that is obvious to anyone who can read even a little sheet music. The song pictured is titled and credited correctly on the sheet, as it usually is; it is “Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz” by John Stump and was “written” to be impossible and more of a visual experience. It was never meant to be played.
In comes Synthesia, where any song could be played if the notes were entered in. Surprising to no one, “Fearie’s Aire and Death Waltz” does not sound very good when played.
Around this time, there was another song from a video game that was mysterious enough to the Western audience until information from the East was far more widely available, and was also rumored to be impossible to play. The video game is Touhou 6: Embodiment of Scarlet Devil, and the song is “U.N. Owen Was Her?”. It is the music that accompanies the EX boss battle, Flandre Scarlet, and the game was never released outside of Japan.
Somewhere along the way, somebody came “U.N. Owen Was Her?” and the rumor of its difficulty and mixed them up, and people are still confused, which is why many YouTube videos uploaded from Western countries with the Touhou song will also include”Death Waltz” in the title, but never videos from Japan, and why videos featuring “Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz” do not (in my experience) credit the Touhou song in the title.
Faerie’s Aire and Death Waltz
U.N. Owen Was Her?
Thank you, that is all.
