The Wingless gives us our first XBOX ReMix. I've expressed in the past that I will probably end up buying this system, with the DoA Volleyball game being a major catalyst . . . for the gameplay, of course :) But games like Morrowind, which have a more mature, "adult" feel than traditional console RPGs, as well as Orta and Halo don't hurt, either. The Wingless says: "I hated the fact that such a large game has the same damn tracks looping ad nauseum, and none of it is context sensitive. So I tried to spice things up a bit, cause it's a catchy little ditty. Here's my little ode to island at the edge of the world." - with what sounds like an alto flute covering melody, along with acoustic guitar and mucho ambient pads and effects, this is very atmospheric but also melodic as well. Piano plays a bigger role later in the piece, after a couple breaks, and the tone switches from epic to more melancholy, exiting on ambient wind / town effects that are quite well done. At 3'35" there's some nastiness with chords that's not too pleasant and does disrupt the otherwise smooth flow. The sounds used are fantastic, however, and are used in exposed contexts with skill. The first bits of the piece are extremely cinematic and transporting - though the arrangement varies a bit further on, the overall tone remains the same, so it's the initial phrases that held my interest the most. The musical ending - the last, Good, Bad & Ugly-style "ooh-ee-ooh", is a bit truncated. There's a few blemishes here and there, the mentioned chord weirdness being the most salient, that disrupt the feel, but The Wingless succeeds in creating a vibe that for most of the mix evokes a compelling world.
