I'll often suggest for a given mix that it would make good driving music, or tunage for surfin' the web or chillin' out, which usually equates to genres like rock, trance, or ambient, respectively. In this instance, newcomer Michael Lee, alias tekcoh_top, has penned a very mellow nylon acoustic guitar duet that I honestly see being quite perfect for a candlelight dinner. I'm not speaking from an overabundance of empirical evidence, but what I've got says that paired up with some wine, fine dining, and ambiance, this FFX/FF7 arrangement would serve admirably for wooing the prospect of your preference, yet again indicating the flexibility and malleability of game music. For the win. Ms. Tricks effused:
"Oh, my Lord... Who are you, and where did you learn to play so beautifully? I am stunned. The tone, the phrasing, the musicality... This performance is easily on par with the classical guitarists I've heard at Peabody. The section starting at 2:39 is so moving, I could cry. This arrangement may be a little on the conservative side, but it's certainly no cover. You've clearly put in a great deal of personality and feeling into your performance, and it shows. I have not a single criticism. It's a gem. YES, YES, YES!!!"
The triune capitalized "yes" mantra can only mean one thing: good times. Of a musical variety, of course. The only nit a couple judges flirted with picking was recording quality and a general lack of sharpness, i.e. more upper midrange and high frequencies, but this was (correctly, imo) chalked up to the timbre of the instrument itself. 2'02" is an interesting twanged blue note in an otherwise classical arrangement; it sounded like a flub to Larry, which it may very well be, but if not, it's certainly a conspicuous and abnormal arranging decision. It'd be interesting to get the skinny on that from Michael. Towards the end of the mix, things get faster, with repeated articulations that are simply gorgeous. Sting recently released an album of Elizabethan songs with himself and Edin Karamazov on lute, and I think there's tangency between the appeal there and the appeal of what Lee's done with this ReMix; solo string instruments are obviously beautiful, but a duet between two of the same can be breathtaking. This isn't a toe-tapping mix or anything that will get your adrenaline pumping, per se, but it's intimate and musical and warm , and I can personally loop it almost indefinitely without issue. Lovely.
