I like to do this: review a movie and then discuss its soundtrack on the next round of Tuesday Tunes. The OST for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is full of beautiful piano work and strings. It’s a seemingly simple original score, but sometimes less is more. Its music is full of emotion and beauty and I can’t wait to share a few of its tracks today.
Track 11: Kawaranai Mono: This is a very peaceful, soothing track. Slow strings, the occasional sound of a harp. I could play this before bed and go right to see after watching a horror film; it’s just that relaxing!
Track 02: Sketch: This one is definitely more lively! This is a track I noticed most while watching the film as it works perfectly with our playful thoughtless lead character and her life. I love pizzicato because it’s so full of character and life, which you can definitely hear in this piece.
Track 12: Natsuzora: This is the other most memorable track from the film for me. I love the piano part and the electronic sounds that work with the violin. It beautifully builds up with a note of hopefulness and wanting before quietly ending. I love it!
