Hikito is a kind-hearted and at times somewhat lazy boy, and when he gets excited, he also gets the hiccups. Usually, he wants life to be simple, but he still feels like an adventurer and explorer. In the musical tale of Merregnon: Land of Silence, Hikito’s melody is played by the trumpets. And if you listen really carefully, you can even hear his hiccups elsewhere.
The trumpet is a high-pitched instrument and it can be loud and intense. With its structural sound, it is a wonderful instrument for describing Hikito’s daring, yet somewhat clumsy character.
In Merregnon: Land of Silence, Miru embarks on an unforgettable adventure together with her childhood friend Hikito and the loyal dog Mako. Their goal is to find out what is plaguing the Land of Silence, Merregnon. Merregnon is a symphonic tale of courage, perseverance, solidarity and freedom.
The fantastical world is painted with captivating melodies and symphonic sounds. As in Sergei Prokofiev’s classical musical tale, Peter and the Wolf, each character is portrayed by a distinct theme played by one of the orchestra’s various instruments.
The music is composed by Yoko Shimomura, one of the most prominent video game music composers of our time. She composed the music for internationally best-selling games like Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy XV.
