I was trying to analyze a song called "Reprise" from my favorite composer Hisaishi Joe and it really blew my mind how this song keep changing Keys and doing all this harmony techniques that I don't get. So I need some help to analyze this and explain it to me.(this is the song)
- Picture 1 (Listen from 0.30)
this is a G major key song
if you see picture number 1 at bar 6 they end the part with the G Chord and at part [C] they go and start with the D Chord which is the dominant chord on the G key the feeling this part give is kind of odd? not common to me. is this part some kind of "Diatonic modulation"? and they went to D key for a while? could anybody analysis this chord progression for me? this something happen here? or am I just over thinking and he just started with the dominant chord (and if he did isn't that kind of weird ? to start the part with a dominant chord ?)
- Picture 2 (Listen From 1:04)
At bar 3 after G/D it goes to A/C# and then it goes to C maj chord. is the A/C# just a passing chord? How could you go to A/C# to C maj ?
- Picture 3 (listen From 2:00)
(at this point the song changed in to E maj Key)
now if you see at part [H] he went from B7 to G Maj chord is this "Deceptive Cadence" using flat 3 Maj7 modal interchange chord? which is G Maj chord from the E Maj key?
and from this Part [H] the key changed again to C Maj Key
and after the beginning G chord C#m7-5/G came out..what is this chord ? how could this just come out of no where on C Maj key? this four bars going from G major chord too the C Maj Chord. I dont get this chord progression whats going on?
(I'm kind of thinking that it went to G key instead of C Key because after the beginning G chord the C#m7-5 is the #lVm7-5 of the G Maj key and its also used as Tonic on the G Maj key so after that it went down to F Maj which is another modal interchage chord "flat Vll M7" on the G key and also a pivot chord to C Maj Key which is about to come out an then comes the F dim7 which could be kind of like G7 flat 9 with out the root than it goes to C Maj Key..what do you think?)
Picture 4 (listen from 2:40)
so its still C Maj key
and if you see at bar 4 its ends the part with D7 and gives a little space to the next bar and then at Part [J] it goes to this part with no chords.. so whats really going on here..
I'm kind of thinking that it went to G7 which is the Dominant chord on the C maj key and its just extending it and they didn't wrote down the chord because its just arpeggios going on and no harmony
At picture 5 (3:00)
now the arpeggios stops and came to Am7 (in the orginal orchestra version the arpeggios goes on while chords keep on coming out from now on) if what I said at Picture 4,G7 Extended arpeggio thing was right then it fits that it came to Am7
after a few bars it goes starts again with Am to Em/B
and from this part I really don't know whats going on in this chord progressions I couldn't find anyways to connect this progressions to make sense to me..
whats going on here??..
wow it really took me long to right this all down.. I hope I didn't come too complicated.. sorry for my poor English. English isn't my first language hope I get some good answers
