Wintermute brings us a short but intriguing and original take on the Zelda 64 lullaby theme. Beginning with deceptive low octave piano and mellow percussion, drums get heavier around 0'30", with the familiar melody comin' round 0'50" with a very thick, gritty saw wave underneath. Reminds me of the semi-industrial fashion a similar saw wave is used in No Doubt's 'Hella Good' - after that, things sort of go into a brief drum jam, with a delayed synth, then piano motif based on the original melody. Conclusion fades out on some tasty radio-interference type synth fx intervals. This apparently represents Wintermute's new style of 'electronica/piano/orchestral', which seems to serve him well, for however indicative a pilot this constitutes. The source material is just the simple, brief melody, and this gets high marks for, though brief as well, taking that melody in some interesting directions with an odd hodge-podge of sounds. Judges were very split on this, with some feeling it left the listener empty or sounded a little too edgy or abrasive. The tiebreaking vote, however, singled out some creative drum programming as being enough to push it over the edge, which I'd agree with. Not for everyone, this has a unique sound to it that doesn't perhaps offer the same auditory satisfaction and closure something mixed more traditionally might, but does represent a very different, interpretive take on a well-known theme. You'll have to make the call yourself, but it'll certainly be interesting to see how the ReMixer hones this style and applies it to future works.
