*DON'T reply to this thread. Check the Born From a Wish OST/CST thread**
**Keeping post content up for posterity but don't reply to this thread it's over*

As most probably know, the Born From a Wish original cutscene compositions can only be heard with the cutscene dialogue and audio, since all audio in these cutscenes are of the same file and can't be separated.

So here's the deal, I have these ambient pieces without the dialogue and cutscene noise/audio. Right now I'm working with the admin at silenthillmemories to host a Born From a Wish soundtrack that includes the 6 cutscene ambient pieces without the dialogue (as well as other parts of the sub scenario music to form a more complete soundtrack). I'm still finalizing the soundtrack at the moment and it should be ready to release in a week.

Don't worry about the hows of the soundtrack, it's not important now. What is important is what this thread is for.

Since these tracks never got official titles, I think it's kind of unfair I should get to name all 6 tracks. So what I want is for you to listen and maybe post track titles you would rather they be called than what I named them. I want them to be Akira Yamaoka-esque if possible.

Here's a teaser of the 6 tracks. Listen to it and then read below.



These are the 6 tracks:

1: "Awakening" is the track that plays when Maria is in the Heaven's Night dressing room.

2. "Another Human Face" is the track that plays during the first Ernest encounter.

3. "November (Theme of Amy)" is the track that plays during the second Ernest encounter.

4. "Ten Year Silence (Theme of Ernest)" is the track that plays during the final Ernest encounter.

5. "Half-Fate" is the track that plays while Maria is examining the empty room.

6. "Second Birth" is the track that plays while Maria is walking towards the park at the end of the scenario.


Now, these are the titles I came up with, but they are all open to change.

What would you like these tracks to be called?

BFaW had some of my favorite tracks in there. I ripped one of them and edited it into a song several years ago by random request on GFAQs -- it's the one that plays when Maria is walking down the alleyway at the end before she changes her mind and the other track plays. I called that one "Nothing Ahead". My favorite track in the whole game is the one that plays during the final Ernest talk, goes so well with the slow pan thru the door and around the room before it zooms in on the bday card.

This looks like a ton of fun. Is there a way to listen to each track in its entirety?

There already is, I just haven't made them public yet. So then I guess no lol. Not yet.

The naming of these 6 tracks is the last major step. Well also, I can't finalize the front/back cover images until I know the names.

I like Awakening for track 1.

Maybe track 2 is just Another, and leave out the rest.

Track 3 sounds like White Chrism (Theme of Amy) to me.

Track 4 Resonance (Theme of Ernest)

I don't know why, but track 5 sounds like Solstice me.

I'm wondering if maybe I should contact Akira Yamaoka and ask him if he remembers what those tracks were called.

Has anyone here ever been in contact with him?

Yea he does. I follow him too. He's a pretty regular user on it. I just don't know how to approach this topic to him.

*Edit*

I just straight up asked him on twitter if he remembered names for those tracks. We'll see if he responds.

I asked him if he remembered if there were any names for those tracks. We'll see if he gets back to me on it.

I avoid asking the old schoolers questions like this because I dunno...I don't want to bug them. This makes this only the 2nd time I've ever directly asked a SH-involved person a question outside of this forum (the first being on twitter something I needed to know from Tomm about an interview he gave to website).

^ At least it has something to do with his work directly, and nothing to do with lore etc of the franchise.

Does he not have a facebook account too?

Anyway, I talked to him once a couple of years ago, he was very polite and nice person, I spoke like a typical fan telling him how much I admired his work, etc, etc, I remember asking him something like ... . "It is you? ... The real Akira Yamaoka?" ' Something stupid like that. Eh .... I was a fan! In any case, yeah I would not know how to approach this topic to him.

I hope you obtain the answer you are looking for.

Oh, that's what I was searching for! I really like ambient from Born From a Wish, shame it has never been released.

jam6i, thank you for that. ;) Waiting for these tracks.

I also love unreleased music from sh1, such as Eternal rest

I have yet to hear back from AY on this topic. I doubt I'll get a response, but I'm not going to pester him until he responds so if he doesn't get back, that's fine.

Update:



These are longer clips of each of the 6 tracks in this thread. I've placed them over the cutscenes in which they can be found in-game.

As of now, the entire album is looking to be 14 tracks long, and it will look something like this (open the change)

*Final* Track 1: "Awakening" (Heaven's Night Dressing Room)
*Final* Track 2: "Heaven's Night" (Music inside Heaven's Night)
*Final* Track 3: "Silent Heaven" (Ambience from the streets)
Track 4: *Unnamed Track TBA*
Track 5: "Another Human Face" (1st Ernest meeting)
Track 6: "November (Theme of Amy)" (2nd Ernest meeting)
Track 7: *Unnamed Track TBA*
Track 8: *Unnamed Track TBA*
Track 9: *Unnamed Track TBA*
Track 10: *Unnamed Track TBA*
Track 11: "Ten Year Silence (Theme of Ernest)" (last Ernest meeting)
Track 12: "Half-Fate" (Ernest's empty room)
*Final* Track 13: "Born From a Wish (Theme of Maria)" (Final cutscene in alley)
*Final* Track 14: "Love Psalm" (ending credits)

The Unnamed tracks are parts of the album still being worked on, but that which the titles are probably finalized anyway.

I got a suggestion for the track that plays in the alley of "Born From a Wish (Theme of Maria) and I really liked that one as it rounded out the album so that track name is finalized. The first track "Awakening" is also finalized.

Current remaining suggestions:

Track 5. "Another"
Track 6: "White Chrism (Theme of Amy)", "November Flight (Theme of Amy)"
Track 11: "Resonance (Theme of Ernest)"
Track 12: "Solstice", "Solitude"

Why did you delete vids, jam6i? I hope you are still going to post these tracks someday.
