A Lazy Summer Afternoon
Francis "Fermat's Last Theorem" Gayon Secret of Mana | Color of the Summer Sky
Author's Comments

Last year, I was skimming through some classic games and came across this SNES game called "Secret of Mana." Honestly, I have never played the game, but based on the reviews I read, it seemed like something I would enjoy. And so I played it. The first time I entered Potos, I heard this melody that I instantly liked and eventually decided to make a piano arrangement of it. I ended up with... this! If you listen, you will also recognize that I used the main theme in the presto section.

This piece is dedicated to my dear friend Kouen, who is, himself, an excellent pianist. He rendered this submission as well as all of my other submissions using SONAR 6 Producer Edition.

Composed using Sibelius 4.

Goodness me! I'm late by a week! I sincerely apologize for the tardiness. A really strong typhoon (~200-300 mph winds) passed by a week ago and the connection has been buggy since. Aside from that, the Department of Anaesthesiology is simply killing me and my groupmates with all the requirements—three written exams, a practical exam, and a checklist of procedures (all the while going on 36-hour duties every four days) in a span of two weeks! Add to the stress being co-duties with the most arrogant, insufferable, moody, @$$ of a resident I have ever seen during my entire medical education... Argh! *takes calming breaths* The only consolation is that freedom is just around the corner as we'll be shifting out and into Surgery next week. Freedom! Oh, sweet liberty!

Anyway, let's go to the piece. This one is by yours truly and submitted in mid-February. It's quite serendipitous that all the delays have allowed my piece (which has such a title) to be posted during the summertime. Unlike the other pieces, I won't go into an analysis since it'll be biased. What I can say is that this piece is one of my personal favorites out of all the piano pieces I've ever come up with. Go ahead and give it a listen!

Well, I'm off to bed, folks! Sleep gets priority at the moment as I have to rest up for my next duty. Have a nice weekend, everyone!

NOTE: This would have gone up on July 4 if Macstorm wasn't a slacker and remembered to update it on time. You have his apologies.
