This is the last Christmas ReMix - I'm taking tomorrow off to unwrap my goodies up at my sister's place in Delaware. I personally wish every one of you a merry Christmas and a non-denominational "happy holidays" as well. It's not technically a Christmas mix per se, but Youngjin mailed me suggesting this would make a nice holiday post as it has a festive spirit to it, and I concur. This is a Chrono Trigger ReMix from Spekkosaurus, and if you dig bagpipes and all things Celtic, boy are you in luck. I'm actually Welsh-Austrian, and my Dad loves to "explore his Celtic past" by listening to Enya and watching Braveheart 5000+ times. I'm not as gung-ho, but there's a long heritage of Celtic music and many folk instruments - not just bagpipes - that are quite unique. It's a musical culture, to be sure. Spekko focuses on the Scottish element with this mix of Spekkio's theme:
"I tried my best to keep this track within the bounds of the style I rearranged it for. This includes taking into account that, traditionally, this type of Scottish music focuses on simple instrumentation and a repetitive form to the arrangement.
It includes two variations of my favorite Scottish pipe band styles (both very similar) and it seems to meld together well in the one track. With this piece, I was aiming to rearrange the original by faithfully conforming to the traditional aspects of this style.
It’s unique I believe, in that I have not seen any tracks rearranged in this genre yet, and I thought it fun and engaging to venture into new territory.
- Indeed, this is certainly some unique stuff. If you don't have a taste for the sometimes "piercing" nature of bagpipes, I don't think you'll be converted necessarily, but if you dig 'em then you should appreciate the success I think Spekkosaurus had in achieving his goal. Recommended, with that caveat - get to sleep as soon as you're done checking it out, though, or Santa won't stop at your house ;)
