"Taucer: arrangement, production, live performance of guitars and irish whistle.
Usa: arrangement of percussion, bass, and piano, as well as a few very helpful ideas and suggestions along the way. Usa also supplied the patches used for the fiddle and the vox synth.
...I borrowed a lot of ideas from Mitsuda's "My Village is Number One" from the Xenogears OST, as that was very close to the feel I was aiming for. I would also like to say that it was absolutely awesome working with Usa. His percussion tracks were especially brilliant, and this mix would not have been anywhere near as good without his help. I definitely consider this to be my best work so far."
...and I'd agree. I actually heard a version of this (not sure if it was the final or not) at the DC meetup several months ago, and knew it would be great. The acoustic elements add an authentic folksy, Celtic vibe, the 6/8 signature works beautifully, and the two ReMixers' respective performances jive well. There's quite a varied instrumentation, including fiddle, irish whistle, xylophone, acoustic guitar, bass, bagpipes, and a broad assortment of percussion. The samples used are exquisite, also, letting the acoustic performances blend seamlessly with the sequenced. At 2'20", this is a short piece, and doesn't go off on any number of tangential solos I'm sure either artist would have had no problem improvising, which shows a good deal of restraint. The Mitsuda influence is blatant - he's one of the only game composers that I'm aware of working with folksier motifs fairly often, and taking that style and applying it to Kirby has yielded a brief but memorable and transporting track; I attended a regional Celtic festival a few years back, and this literally would have fit right in. Jeremy's a multitalented guy who can juggle, do gymnastic-type stuffs, and somehow make a large, blonde afro work on a small white head, but what's more impressive is that he's improving his craft, collaborating with a variety of other artists, and bringing a deeper (and wider) acoustic presence to the ReMixing world. In this collaboration with Usa, he's illustrated this, and anyone into Kirby or Celtic/acoustic folk instrumentals is in for quite a treat.
