This is djp & Larry posting live from ROFLCon, where today we met the Tron Guy in person, spoke with Matt (who has the best job in the known universe), drank up on our Brawndo, shook hands with Ian, Ryan, and a host of other Internet celebs, and espoused the gospel of VGM... until we had to crash early on two hours of sleep and miss tons of cool shit. We're back now, but have to run to catch the rest of the day's events and meet up w/ Vigilante, thus I will be brief.
"I have always enjoyed this track as one of my favorite Staff Roll (as Nintendo seems to like calling them) scores. I was surprised to find that it hadn't been remixed yet, due to the great source material.
When putting the track together, I had toyed with the idea of adding acoustic guitar at select spots through the track, but the thought didn't resurface until I sent the (finished) version to Tweek for a listen. Brian laid down some guitar work that fit the exact style and feel that I was looking for. It especially worked well to provide an appropriate climax for the second time into the chorus, and then I just had to add a short Zimmer-ish segue at the very end to close up shop appropriately."
"I came into the project rather late in the game. Audix asked for a little feedback which didn't take long considering how polished it already sounded, but after letting the track loop over and over again, I heard an acoustic guitar part unfold in my head, so I laid one down and fortunately, he liked what he heard! I've been a huge fan of Greg's work ever since he released the first WIP of Devastation's Doorway, so being able to work with him was quite a privilege!"
Acoustic guitar integrates particularly well here, and the feel of a credits/staff roll piece is maintained with the upbeat, rather sugary sweetness. The rolling snare pattern is key in polishing up the acoustic rock/orchestral vibe and making it more expressive, and when timpani and strings enter and build towards the end, it definitely conveys a sense of epic accomplishment. The guit strummin' pushes the whole thing along nicely, production is slick, and in general the whole thing has a positive, pleasant groove to it. It's sorta weird quoting Larry when he's right here, but I'm doing it anyway. He sed:
"Loved the changeup at 2:15. The whole arrangement really added a lot more dramatic dynamic changes to the original and a very personalized flavor while retaining the overall structure. A very epic take on an already fun source tune, this had some great energy and really took the theme to that next level. Y'all better collab again!"
Word. That pretty much sums it up for today's ROFL-edition mixpost++; hopefully we'll be able to sell some swag and enjoy the festivities here a bit before returning to the humble trappings of RL. Great teamwork from Audix and Tweek, with Brian adding a necessary element (guitar) to Greg's arrangement for a collab that sounds natural and has what plants crave: electrolytes. Nice work.
