Dan Baranowsky (or "The Artist Formerly Known as SysteManiac") gives us a nice straight orchestral ReMix of Super Metroid, something of a change of pace for him. This piece is actually part of a (much) larger project put together by some OCR regulars called 'Relics of the Chozo' which can be found at smproject.ocremix.org. The full skinny on it is that it's "a project aimed at producing a collective and collaborated interpretation of the soundtrack of Super Metroid. However, each individual piece, despite being a unique standalone work of its own, is also a part of a larger scheme arranged to create an ambience of continuity; one large song, if you will. The project could be thought of in terms of a progression of events/sentiments/stages of every relevant theme from Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo." - pretty much. So, for more great Super Metroid arrangement action, head in that direction stat, for this submission - while excellent in its own right - is only a small part of what awaits you. This piece of the overall compendium that Dan's given us is dramatic, John Williams-style bombastic orchestral arrangement, with lots of cinematic motifs that'd be at home in a Hollywood action flick. But, we also get the more delicate, complex tone of 1'20", where a xylophone counterbalances light pizzicato strings. From there things become more aloof and mysterious until we get back to the original energy of the first minute, then things conclude on a restful but tentative note. I particularly liked some of the voicings used in both the very beginning and ending, that create a sense of something about to happen - musical kinetic energy. Mix quality is there, and the only samples I was less than thrilled with were the woodwind leads and brass, everything else blended well. Good, atmospheric, deliberate stuff, with lots of changes in direction and varying tones. A successful foray into straight orchestral fare for the mixer, and part of a larger whole that is quite a formidable body of game music arrangement.
