M u s i c

If there's anything I love and am inspired by as much as art and writing, it's music. Instrumental or vocal, it doesn't matter. Music is such a fundamental part of life that almost everyone will have something they enjoy. That's why I wanted to have a page to share some of the music that inspires me.

My tastes are all over the place, but I'll do my best to keep this page organized. It's only a start though, as this doesn't even count the seemingly endless amount of video game soundtrack I love. Between that and everything else, I'll have plenty more to add to this list in the future.

The Greatest Living Show

This song needs a special place all its own. I saw the preview of this moments after it was originally posted and it was all I could think about up until the full video's release a week later. Then, that's all I could think about for weeks after that! I love everything about it; the art, the music, the tale it tells. Absolutely worth a watch, especially if you love art styles similar to Yoshitaka Amano's. Though fair warning, it does contain a little animated gore at one point.
