It's a Marathon marathon! The ReMixer writes about his mix(es) title:
"...it says something about marathon and halo's relationship- i.e. the idea of a pre-existing but extinct structure providing a framework for a new generation to adapt and build on, much like the forerunners and covenant/phfor themselves."
Mr. Singer's second Marathon/Halo mashup is more deliberate, and more ambient, but uses some of the same components, including undulating low pizzicato and synth, string runs, and arctic pads and sweeps. It's also similarly short, and in this case also just *feels* a bit shorter, probably because there's fewer changes in momentum/dynamics. It is still, however, quite the sonic journey, especially on a great set of headphones. Jimmy writes:
"Well, my loss for not taking advantage of hearing these two mixes sooner. As the case with Larry, I'm heavily impressed. For more than one reason. The production is pristine and clean. You've chosen some solid source material to work with. You're adaptation to the set genre is right on point. Typically, I tend to smirk a bit at mixes that are less than 3 minutes long, but you've done a phenomenal job at creating a progressive arrangement in a short amount of time with not only one, but two themes. I'm also really happy to finally see Halo get some love for a theme other than "Truth and Reconciliation", which has been done quite a bit already, and we'll probably hear much more of down the road, I imagine."
zyko suggests stringing the two pieces together to form a larger whole, which I think works rather well:
"the two of these tracks looped together provide a great storytelling experience, truth be told. you know what you're doing and i wish you the best of luck with your professional career!"
I don't think Nick will be needing much luck, as his skills seem rather solid, but the sentiment is certainly well-deserved, and part of breaking into any creative industry does involve a certain degree of luck in terms of building connections and pursuing opportunities (tenacious persistence will, of course, increase the likelihood of said luck occurring)... at any rate, if you liked Nick's previous MaratHalo amalgamation, you'll almost certainly dig this one as well; very immersive stuff.
