I've been meaning to do this for at least a year. This is my cover version of "Into the thick of it" by Hiroki Kikuta, my favorite piece of the Seiken Densetsu 2 soundtrack. I'm playing an ocarina as the main instrument. I cut it in such a way that it can be listened to as an endless loop.

I've lived in the wild for many years before I was even a full adult. I understand the feeling of being at places where people have never been, to be way out there between the trees. Australia, New Guinea - I've been in dark forests and jungles, surrounded by hundreds of fireflies. I've crossed savannas and oceans. In the wild, every day is an adventure.

Seiken Densetsu 2 (Secret of Mana), which was released in 1992/1993, was one of the main influences that made me an adventurer. Both it and its music had a huge influence on me, not only because it was the first RPG I had ever played, but because it remains to be one of the best this day. If you are a gamer and have never played this gem, you should!

The small picture in the back is an official artwork, but I've been painting it for a while, so there is a sneak peek for ya. Not sure if I will ever post it, though.

Yes, I know there is a typo in the text - unfortunately, deviantArt doesn't let you edit videos.

That's one of my favourite tunes. :stereo:
Although I must say, I don't agree with you on this; "forget the entire rest of the series."
Seiken Densetsu 3, Sword of Mana(remake of the original Seiken Densetsu) and Legend of Mana(it's a bit different, but still it rocks.. it has pretty good music, too) are good, too. But we can forget about the rest. :D

This is absolutely awesome. Ironically, I stumbled across this while I'm playing through SoM. My grandfather took me to Game Trader when I was a kid and bought this for me. We played for hours and hours. So much fun.

I happen to play the ocarina, too (not as well as you, though)...did you find the sheet music on the Ocarina Network? I would love to learn (read: stumble through) this song.

Anyways, beautifully done. Love this! Thanks for being awesome!

Wait...did you say this was you playing it? ...too much talent for one person! Seriously though...and you're an adventurer?
And you love space and science? ...mind is officially blown. I don't say this often.

Thank you so much for this!

I played this song at my wedding, during the ceremony while my husband-to-bed escorted our family to their seats. I did not get to see their reaction, but many of my guests (my mother included) were thrilled to hear this memory from their past. I felt the name added a bit of entertainment to the situation as well. We were getting married - going right into the thick of it.

I played the acoustic version by Aether. However, had yours been available (and had I permission), I would have wished to feature it instead!

I'm just an idle observer of your works and yet I feel inspired by you. You have lived a life that I am jealous of - similar to what I have lived, only amplified to an extreme.

So thank you for this. Thank you for sharing your life. Thank you for everything.

There's never been such a harmonious co-op rpg since; so full of wonder, and color, and life. I can't get over your cover, and you play the ocarina beautifully, with incredible timing. Thanks for posting this!
