Liontamer (on the forums) sent me a suggestion to post this Battle of Olympus mix by GrayLightning and Freemind on Valentine's Day, due to the 'Eros' title and (I s'pose) somewhat romantic, certainly mellow and furtive orchestral style. Alas, twas not to be, as the timing didn't work out. I wish I could say I was simply too busy buying gratuitous chocolates for my gorgeous hottie gf, giving them, and getting adulation, "etc." in return, but that wasn't the case. GL writes:
"This is the second time Freemind and I are collaborating. This time we blended romantic new age piano, with new age fare and orchestra. It's hard to detail exactly who deserves what credit as we literally shared the work on this project 50-50. Freemind initially did the piano with some of the orchestration. I then worked from the midi he had - editing the piano, then adding some new age trimmings and additional orchestration until completion. I also did the recording, mixing and mastering on this one. The result is a really romantic sounding piece, hence the title Eros, which means love in greek."
I would have classified this as straight orchestral, albeit very flowing and with an emphasis on dynamics, rather than as hybrid New Age, as though there are synthetic elements I think melody is always first and foremost, the piano is mixed rather dominantly, and the synths used almost substitute for counterpart orchestral timbres. This is very melodramatic fare - at points it even sounds a bit Angelo Badalementi / Twin Peaks-ish. Excellent flute, strings, overall good sample quality, but the dynamics and lushness of the mix are what make the whole thing work. The brass, where used, is grandiose but not overexposed, and the reworking of the piece itself is creative, emotional, and thorough. Good stuff that should appeal to orchestral fans, solo piano fans, and anyone looking for a quality ReMix of this particular game. Great to see some more varied game coverage, especially when the mixes are every bit as good as their more mainstream kin.
