This ReMix is sorta special to me: it's the last mix I'll make in my house here in Reston, Virginia. I moved here about two years ago, it was my first house, and I made some good bucks on the sale (yay for dramatic drops in interest rates!!) - I'll be moving out this Tuesday but am dismantling my studio here tomorrow. I was actually gonna dismantle it a week ago, but wanted to dedicate a mix to the house. Yes, this seems a bit silly (and is), but it was my first house, and a large portion of OCR's database and current design was developed whilst living in it. At any rate, I'm moving to a bigger and better place, but setting everything back up is gonna take some serious time, so this might be it for awhile. I love the Guardia Millennial Fair theme, it's quite a catchy core melody, instant melodic gratification from Mr. Mitsuda. I was listening to bits and pieces of the Trigun anime OST a month ago, and I was digging the western-themed acoustic and electric rock. The acoustic stuff, in particular, struck me as something that would work well with this piece. In addition to a strong mid-western theme, I decided to throw in some prog-rock/blues flavors, vaguely reminiscent of the band Jethro Tull. The result is a conglomeration of influences, titled appropriately, that takes about 70% of the original piece and adds quite a bit onto that, with phrase extensions, rhythmic alterations, new harmony and counter-melody, and a vortech supercharger (scratch that last bit, got confused with the wish list for my Mustang). If you'll forgive the Peter-and-the-Wolf explanation, Vash is the lead acoustic guitar and "Jethro" (note that the band has not actually had a member named that) is the alto flute, and they take turns and at one point do a fun call-and-answer routine. This is all GigaStudio except for a VSTi bass and Yamaha Motif drums. It was actually recorded in 6/4 time @ 209bpm in Cubase, don't ask me why ^^ Musically, it turned out much as I'd hoped; there's some emphasis inversions that play with the time signature and transitions I wanted to include but wasn't sure I could in time, but things worked out in the end. At any rate, this wasn't by request and though I know there's a lot of CT fans out there, I basically did this one for me, to remember my first house and the two years spent here. Hope you dig it, nonetheless.
