My apologies to Chris Webb, aka destructo - his mix's title seems to have had an unintended subliminal effect on me as it got lost in the shuffle for a bit. Without further ado, this mellow ambient-synth-jazz hybrid reworking of "blue fields" from Final Fantasy 8 intros with what I could have sworn was NI Absynth but is apparently a Maelstrom patch in Reason. The very first seconds might suggest a strict electronica track, but the mellow, reclining jazz feel that comes in, with a nice brush set, warm, dark piano, upright acoustic bass, dynamic strings and percussion, takes things in a less expected but welcome direction. The declining triplets at 1'08" and other such touches are what take the already rock solid instrumentation and mixing and add arrangement polish and that lil' bit o' sumthin', and in general the piece is very clear, coherent, and reticent. I think the last minute could have been better spent on having an additional solo voice do some more substantive melodic work, instead of putting emphasis on the pads, but I dig the ritardando ending that leaves a mysterious footprint and sense of closure at the same time. All in all, a very worthwhile effort that doesn't trip up anywhere and while not taking an amazing number of risks presents a distant, lush soundscape that's informed by a jazz structure. Promising first submission well worth exploring.
