I'm proud tonight to formally kick off n00bfl00d '08: ReMixers We Can Believe In! This was completely Larry's idea: seeing as we've just posted three Bad Dudes mixes in a row, and seeing how the usual OC ReMix lineup also includes a lot of familiar faces, we wanted to do something special to highlight newcomers to the site. For the next couple weeks, we're going to be posting nothing but first-time artists, shining a spotlight on ReMixers new to '08. I think you'll find that, while they may be n00bs in the sense of having their first mixes just posted, these artists are talented, unique, and are hopefully a harbinger of what's to come in 2009 and beyond. We're starting with Mr. John Revoredo, who ironically enough is less of a n00b than others due to his inclusion on Delta-Q-Delta, and also isn't particularly enamored of this mix, even though the judges passed it. Personally, I'm digging it, specifically because it lives up to the promise of its name by delivering a very piratey musical experience, channeling DIsney's 33.3% great trilogy. Vinnie, fresh off a birthday, writes:
"Cool arrangement, John. I think it plays well off the original melodies and has a lot of variety for a less than 3-minute orchestral song. The transitions were a little abrupt but I think were still handled decently. I especially love the writing in the section beginning at 1:40. Production was a little iffier. I think the majority of the sounds are good, but as noted, the strings in the intro were definitely off. It's only for about 20 seconds though, so I feel it's not a huge part of the song and doesn't need to be fixed given the quality of the rest of the song."
He points out a good detail: Most of our orchestral subs are considerably longer, and this piece's relative brevity and numerous transitions definitely have a cinematic, cued flavor to them, as if composed to fit an action sequence, probably at the beginning of a film given the overture structure. I've got more of a problem with the brass samples than the strings, which at forte have that bright, thin sound that plagues even the best brass libraries. The arrangement compensates with its clever blend of influences, though - zyko writes:
Sounds like a good mix, and a good ReMix, to me; Mr. Revoredo may have improved his craft in the time that's elapsed since this sub, but it's nonetheless a worthy and promising orchestral debut from a versatile (check his DQD stuff!) artist.
