The Coop gives us a dramatic, serious reworking of the same theme from Sega's transmogrifying, side-scrolling beat 'em up Altered Beast that I turned into a super-loud, unabashed techno piece back in 2000. Listening to both, you can really hear the contrast, and appreciate what The Coop's done to take the melody and rework it into something more somber and cinematic. Piano, strings, and some orchestral percussion are all that comprise the arrangement, but it certainly does have vicissitudes in dynamics and tone through addition and subtraction of these elements. Judges praised the arrangement overall. However, analoq - like myself - did note that the soundset used, as well as dynamics on the piano (which didn't appear to be velocity-layered), were very average. OC ReMix looks at mixes both for the arrangement as well as the overall sound quality, which includes mixing, samples used, effects, etc., and The Coop's work leans heavily towards the former end of the scale, away from the latter. It's still an enjoyable ReMix, and the arrangement is certainly noteworthy in its successfull, significant reinterpretation of a classic theme, but I'd like to see more work done to even out the arrangement/sound quality scale from the ReMixer in the future. An interesting idea, well-executed given the instruments used. This time, I'll end with a quote from the trustably frank Protricity: "Kinda quiet. Pretty cool. Moody. Piano is pretty good. This is actually rather well done considering the source material. Good way to convert to orch ;p."
