You'll often hear certain pieces on this site referred to as "minimalist" by me or ReViewers, usually referring to a sparse soundset or deliberate, spartan arrangement. This is not one of those pieces. In fact, taking inspiration from Anime opening themes for this Tekken 2 ending theme ReMix, I'd say it's "maximalist" :) It's also amazing I ever finished the damn thing, because I lost pieces of it twice due to two separate power outages. I now have dual 1000VA UPS in place upstairs and down, so I think I'm safe. These losses were compounded by the fact, however, that this ReMix involved the most complex technical configuration I've yet attempted. I usually stick to either mostly softsynths or mostly hardware, and rarely use my Kawai K5000 synth. I also just bought a microKorg that I'd not yet used. I decided for the first time I was going to do a ReMix that used 90% instead of 40% of my studio resources. This doesn't make it a better ReMix, mind you, but it did make it a lot more difficult to configure properly, and also to recreate after each outage. Yamaha Motif, K5000, microKorg, and a slew of soft synths and samplers are all involved in this one. Tekken 2 was always my favorite of the series - afterwards they started branching off and away from what I'd call a "fighting game" - and the ending theme is haunting, unique redbook audio work. I don't often mix redbook or anything too recent, but I wanted a version that was much more aggressive, and decided to make one myself. The main melody should be very recognizable, where other pieces are more impressions / interpretations. Upon completion of some ReMixes, there's sometimes a feeling of missing the creative process, being sorry that it's all over. Others, however, you're glad to have behind you. Again, this doesn't reflect on their respective quality, more on the trials and tribulations involved with their creation, for me at least. This may be my last mix of 2002, which has been a great year for OCR. If it is, it's fitting that I feel glad to have it done, and look forward to the next piece. Anyhoo, check it out for some unapologetic, elaborate techno, and be sure to play it L-O-U-D.
