A unique, lo-fi, chiptunish, and pretty liberal Link's Awakening ReMix from newcomer Platonist, aka Jonas Loman. He writes:
"the song i remixed is originally called Mysterious Woods but my remix is called "Forest of Hysteria." i made it in Impulse Tracker (or rather- its clone for windows "Schism Tracker") i have mastered it in Wavelab to gain some/alot of quality, using Eq's and Maximizing .. the mix itself though was made in impulse/ further comment should be that the intro/the last part of the track is an arrangement of the midpart of the track which sounds disharmonic. . but really isn't if you look deeper into it .. i arranged it in such a way to gain more flexibility in creativity."
There's definitely a compelling texture here that marries chippish bits with more elaborate processing, and the programming/modulation really tie in to the nuts and bolts of the arrangement itself. Judges were keen on the production but the liberal arrangement, which steers relatively clear of melodic hooks, raised a few eyebrows. Larry spotted what seems like an allusion to the original main theme from the NES towards the end of the arrangement, but it turns out that wasn't the ReMixer's intention, just a coincidentally similar interval. This was definitely a happy accident, as Larry put it in his notes, as it adds a bit more "Zelda" to what otherwise teeters on the very impressionistic side of arrangement. Andy, who recently returned from meeting Nobuo Uematsu at the Distant Worlds concert in Chicago, writes:
"Cool mix. The production is polished and clean, with good mixing/mastering, but at the same time it's got a gritty & lo-fi sound on a lot of the instruments that really works. The texture evolves throughout the course of piece, even though the actual dynamics don't change that much (volume-wise) which gives it a feel of motion - I don't really think it needs to be cut down at all. Arrangement is also great. This mix exemplifies how you can do a lot with not only the melodies of a source, but the chord progression and harmony riffs. The mixer has added original writing that really fits in with the source material and the end result is definitely solid. My only possible complaint might be a lack of more direct melody usage, but I think there is more than enough arrangement derived in some form from the source tunes (be it an arpeggio, chord progression, backing riff, rhythm, etc.) to qualify it as an OC ReMix."
Well said; creative and exploratory first ReMix from Platonist. You can find more of his original stuff, along with the original works of several other OC ReMixers, at reuniverse.org.
