Jimmy did an amazing job organizing and coordinating the recent OCR meetup centered around this weekend's Video Games Live performance. This involved getting a lot of different people from a lot of different places to the same place at the same time, more or less. One of those people was his wife Amanda, whom I was meeting for the first time. This piece, the latest in a series of FFA mixes BGC and Ziwtra have sorta coordinated between themselves, shares her namesake, which is kinda sweet. Sayeth Mr. Hinson:
"Here's another old tune I dusted off from the FFA project that fell through. (I promise, I don't have many more of these left). Did this one in late '04, perhaps early '05--not exactly sure. At any rate, I have since tweaked the EQ, removed the former FL Slayer and replaced it with some very 80's power-ballad-ish guitar lead (complete with whammy effect) using a different patch, and adjusted various other minor things--nothing too extreme. Basically, I spit on it, and then shined it up with my sleeve. I wouldn't call this my finest work, but I don't think it's going to cower too far in the shadows of any of the other mixes on the site. Melodically, the arrangement might not seem too drastically different. I remember at the time I made this, I wanted my main form of expression to be in the harmonies and countermelodies, as well as the instruments themselves. 1:03 is a good example of what I'm talking about."
Thing of it is, spit-and-polish BGC is still pretty damn good. This is more orchestral than his previous mixes, but still rocks the electronica beat. There are some fun tempo modulations, ethnic percussion infusion, and of course slick synth leads. The last, isolated piano note is an interesting touch, as are the very prominent ensemble pizzicato bits; good stuff. It's very late or I'd write a bit more; suffice it to say that the meetup was fantastic - in spite of myriad logistical snags, things went surprisingly well, largely thanks to Jimmy's coordination - and everyone present at my place, at the concert, at Burke Lake Park, and at IHOP this morning represented the best aspects of participating in this community. Great people, great times, great mix.
