Composition[edit]

"Memories in Pieces" is approximately one minute and fifty-four seconds long and plays at a variety of tempos at different sections. The piece switches between time signatures and keys as the piece progresses. The piece opens with a slower version of "Hand in Hand," transitioning into a more ominious, mysterious section used while Marluxia lures Sora to Castle Oblivion. The third section is a variation of "Naminé's Theme," briefly heard while Naminé is shown sketching. The fourth section interrupts the previous theme, using a driving eighth note pattern from the strings, piano, harp, and choir-ahs. The theme slowly crescendos into the climax of the entire piece, announcing the trio's arrival at Castle Oblivion. There is no difference of versions between games.
