“Find You” is another return to the roots of classic RPG music. Originally designed as a main theme (or main character theme), this song was probably my first real non-battle orchestral theme. The melody itself is purposefully short and simple, and the three levels of orchestration (duet -> trio -> epic) are pretty standard for an RPG theme. The counterpoint between the oboe and brass in the final section worked out particularly well, and – fun fact – this song spans almost the entire physical range of the oboe.
Some have said this song sounds familiar to Braveheart; in retrospect I suppose it does. Another friend mentioned that it would have fit well in FF6. I’m still looking for a game deserving of this great little song…and hopefully I’ll someday find a home for it.
