Once more unto the FFA goes Youngjin, who writes:
"this is a fairly radical interpretation of the original--if you're interested it's worth checking out the source. someone ought to do a kickass breakbeat/techno mix of this one anyway--that's what jimmy seemed to expect, but instead i went into contemplative/shimmering mode. the sounds circa ~1:30 are from a subway recording in korea--the ringing sound is actually an electronic bell they use to tell you a train is coming (not a phone). i didn't make the recording, but i have been to korea and the sample definitely hit home for me. sorry for the long and obscure title, it's not a reference to anything other than the mood i wanted to convey, esp. at the end. if anyone complains that i left the end unresolved, well... sorry! that's the point!"
Same thing goes for Lost in Translation. The feel here is definitely new agey, but with enough edge so that you don't wander off and start expecting Carl Sagan to start doing a voiceover about billions and billions of... whatever (as a side note, Cosmos rocks and had a great soundtrack, too). This is, for lack of a better term, "stargazing" music. The type that brims with the power of imagination. Not in a fruity, Levar-Burton-Does-Reading-Rainbow sorta way, but rather a cool Spring night, sitting on a grassy hill, staring up at clear sky kinda vibe. It's got some of the same delicate sensibility and polish as Wingless' stuff, and I for one think the ending adds maturity and structural dissent in what otherwise might have been too straightforward (if still solidly built) a composition. Not quite as deviant from ziwtra's preeminent style as his last mix, but when you've got something that works, persisting ain't such a bad notion. The Korean train sound is a personalized touch as well, and makes for a nice anecdote. More excellent Final Fantasy Adventure material from Youngjin; you can't go wrong.
