Different, and very cool. Like NoppZ, aluminum proves his return from hiatus wasn't just about a single mix, as he follows his January release up with this slick and rather ballsy Super Mario 64 arrangement. He of heat-resistant yet surprisingly lightweight metal writes:
"Here's my take on the brief (but catchy) "File Select" tune from Mario 64. It started out as a slow, relaxed groove in the original key, but I wasn't making much progress on the arrangement. After flipping it to the minor key and adding the transition to the double-time percussion, the rest fit pretty well (I think). The bass is mixed fairly loud, and the cymbals are intentionally over-compressed for extra crunchiness."
Never before has file selection been this fun, or this... interesting. What could easily have been a more contiguous electronica mix (which would still have passed) is tempered somewhat with solo piano infusion and some very blatant, in-your-face processing trickery. Jesse writes:
"Talk about making the track your own. I didn't recognize it at first. Having an entirely different feel from the original and being in a minor key, this is the sort of complete re-envisioning that I haven't heard 'round here since Intense Color. I love the degree of creativity on display here."
You know what else was a pretty complete re-envisioning? The Sveldt!!111!... I'm just sayin'... seriously, aluminum takes a molehill and makes a mountain in terms of expanding a looped, peppy BGM skeleton into a full-fledged corpus, complete with key change, tempo change, and obvious production alterations. It's on the extreme side of arrangement, but you can still hear the guts of the source in there. small inconsequential squares writes:
"wow, now this is cool. i wasn't crazy about the execution of the transition at 2:20, but all in all, in my own opinion, this is an excellent example of reinterpreting a track in your own style."
I'll say. SM64 had a great soundtrack and is actually rather underrepresented. While in addressing this issue I wouldn't necessarily have thought to start by transmogrifying the file select music in particular, it really does work. Hopefully some of you are discovering or rediscovering this game now via the Wii's Virtual Console (or other means) - it's truly one of the classics of the medium - but even if 3D platforming greatness ain't your thing, this inventive and enjoyable arrangement from aluminum is well worth a spin.
