Sometimes I will set the sleep timer on our TV so that it will play and I can fall asleep to the sounds of whatever anime that cartoon network’s Adult Swim is playing at that particular time of night.
For a few weeks, I was falling asleep just as the show “Ghost in the Shell” was beginning. I would set the sleep timer, and then as I drifted off, I would hear the theme song for the current season of the show. It is a beautiful song (in my opinion) called Inner Universe, featuring a Russian singer who calls herself Origa (the fan site is so-so, obviously done by someone who does not write English, but you get the general idea), and a male soprano, Ben Del Maestro.
Origa intrigued me, as her story is interesting. I was born on her eighth birthday.
Included herein is a link to the Youtube.com fan-made video to accompany the full version of the song. If you are a fan of Final Fantasy at all, you’ll probably recognize clips from FFVII: Advent Children. (It has relatively little to do with the first movie Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within).
Anyways, I thought you might like to have a listen. Someday, when I have the time, I am going to sample more of Origa’s work. Hopefully it’s as good as this.
