We've been a bit quiet this week; sorry about that, spent most of the time dealing with administrivia and (believe it or not) ReMixing. Let's get back on track... we'll start with more VotL. I feel like I almost need to apologize for continuing to post VotL tracks many of you have already heard, but we knew in advance that this project would yield tons of submissions, that tons would get passed, and that we'd need to space them out a bit. While those of you already intimately familiar with the album in its entirety might find this a little... laborious, it does give each artist a spotlight on their specific mix, and also provides a dedicated review thread, etc., etc. This time it's all about Tweek and his arrangement of Trail of Blood. Project Director Andrew Aversa writes:
"Tweek, when he first came on Voices, was in the same boat as guys like Fishy and Another Soundscape. He was relatively new to the community and I wasn't sure what he would come up with, but from a remix of his I had judged, I could tell he had a lot of talent. This remix really blew me away. Brian nailed the Harry Gregson-Williams/Metal Gear Solid style perfectly, and it fits the source tune like a glove."
"My idea and concept for this piece was simple: how would Harry Gregson-Williams do this piece if he was remixing it in the MGS style? In particular, I wanted to capture the "infiltration" genre that he would create. This certainly wasn't easy. Mr. Williams has learned his trade well and has crafted a style of music that is not easy to replicate. The track also proved difficult by remixing a source tune that has no defined tempo. Despite Nobuo's best efforts to thwart someone from remixing this track and Mr. Williams tricky genre, I feel I was able to accomplish something that I'm proud of :). The picture I had in mind was the gang getting out of their cells and as they make they're way through the Shinra building, they bare witness to the havoc that Jenova and Sephiroth have brought upon the people in their way. Special thanks to Reuben Kee who gave me some wonderful feedback and help with samples to perfect the sound."
Brian of course submitted this before Reuben's tragic passing; the selfless assistance and friendship Reuben was known for is still having repercussions many months later, and will continue to do so far into the future. Honestly, Andy and Brian did my work for me in describing what this mix is all about, so I don't need to say much more. The source material was quite challenging - Jon wrote in his decision:
"adapting this part of the OST into something listenable is an accomplishment."
Not exactly flattering to the source material, but often there are pieces on an OST that are more BGM or context-specific than others, and arranging them usually presents a greater challenge. Tweek rose to that challenge, and the result is a nice piece of cinematic, ambient fare that sounds very natural.
