Happy Halloween! If time permits, we'll have a more Halloween-themed mix for you, but I think you'll enjoy judge GrayLightning's take on this piece off the Sega CD version of Ecco's soundtrack. The ReMixer writes:
"I've been doing mostly cinematic/orchestral mixes lately so I wanted to go back to my new age/ethnic roots on this one. I heard this midi from vgmusic and completely fell in love with the piece and thought I would want to mix it, yet keep Spencer Nilsen's new age style. The source material is fairly short so I was able to do quite a bit of expansion here. New chord progressions, new chords, slight melodic variations, rhythmic and tempo changes as well. There's a lot of effects processing and fx here too. Hope you enjoy. :)"
This is actually still a little more structured and orchestral than most of GL's new age mixes from days of yore, and has sort of an Asian/epic vibe to it; feels like good anime OST material, something with ninjas, samurai, chakra, sacrifice, etc. The more serious scenes from Kenshin, Naruto, Champloo, Ninja Scroll, that sort of thing. Heavy choral work, flute lead, the bells that he's so fond of (if there were ever a 'Bells Anonymous' for ReMixers addicted to bell patches, he'd be first in line), dramatic orchestral percussion, and later horn and pizzicato strings to add to the variety of ensemble legato strings already being used. Very deliberate tempo, like a solemn march. There's very soft hand percussion panned hard left and right that initially I thought MIGHT have been an artifact or glitch in the samples Gray was using, but I verified with him it's just mixed low and panned hard, but rhythmic and intentional. There's some really cool syncopation with the strings at times, with counter-rhythms swirling around in a spidery web of arpeggiating patterns. Striking and hypnotizing work from Mr. Lightning.
