wHOA WAIT I JUST REMEMBERED I ALSO DREW THIS WHEN I WAS AWAY
Isnt it amazing how beautiful people are. Like just look at anyone and study them and their features and how their lips tort and eyes glisten and how their hair falls or sticks or lays. How their eyebrows flex and the way their arms fold, how expressive their hands are. The way their body moves and how their chest rises and falls so subtley with their pulse. People are beautiful even if we dont find them attractive. The fact that they’re a living being is unbelievably magnificent.
"This time I wanted to have some music resonating from this freezing land as if it was the end of the world. Iceland doesn’t concretely come out in the original story but one of the protagonists, Nine, is constantly listening to music, and he speaks of “the music of a northern country”. For this soundtrack, I wanted to make the album he listens to."
Now I feel stupid.
OF COURSE that’s why there’s a lot of Icelandic singers and song titles (for example, fugl = bird, lava, saga, etc.) in the soundtrack. Of course that’s why Nine uses an Icelandic word (Von = Hope) during the terrorist attacks. How did I not make the connection “Nine listens to music from a cold land” and “this soundtrack is full of singers and words from iceland.”
The soundtrack, at least a big part of it, is Nine’s soundtrack. Yeah, some songs have other meanings and are more focused on Twelve and/or Lisa, but a lot of the Icelandic stuff is Nine’s soundtrack. I have no idea what this means for the show though, but. Still.
Oh, and the last piece of the soundtrack, bless, apparently means goodbye in Icelandic, and this makes me very worried.
