OverClocked... WiiMix? Shariq brings us our first ReMix from Nintendo's latest console, from none other than Twilight Princess. DarkeSword gives us some narrative context:
"There is an old Grimm's fairy tale called The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces, about twelve princesses who would secretly cross over to another world every night to dance with twelve princes. In the morning, the king would discover that all of his daughters' slippers were tattered and worn. A hero eventually shows up and saves the day, as heroes are wont do to, but that's besides the point. This is a waltz arrangement of Midna's Desperation from The Legend of Zelda, Twilight Princess, called Tattered Slippers. It's about a princess who crosses over to another world to dance with a hero."
Though I'm the proud owner of a Wii, I confess to not investing time yet in TP; I don't need to be sold that it's a fantastic game, I just haven't had the type of free time I'd want to be able to commit to enjoying it without massive interruptions. Definitely looking forward to it, though... things intro here with harp, gradually joined by strings of varying articulations - pizzicato, legato, tremolo - a bell timbre, and a wind lead. Interesting chord progression; very mysterious, deliberate, and serious. The 3/4 time and military snare pattern work well to achieve a dancing, swaying feel, then things pick up with a shift to what feels more like 6/8. This is only Shariq's second Zelda mix, a follow-up to his 2003 Wind Waker ReMix, but he handles the series' tone and material quite adeptly, incorporating Zelda's theme nicely into the arrangement's more upbeat, major-key conclusion. Mr. Sword's recently had a career change of sorts and apparently has better hours, a little less stress, and more free time. If it means more mixes like this, that's fantastic, but even if it doesn't, I'm glad things are working out for him. This is an excellent first Zelda:TP mix AND first Wii mix, proving that whether it's retro-gen, last-gen, or next-gen, a DarkeSword mix by any other generation would sound as great.
