What's this? AnSo + Skrypnyk collab!? Our first Xbox 360 ReMix? And from Uematsu's score to Lost Odyssey, no less?? Yes, yes, and... yes. The man with two umlauts in his middle name, Mattias Häggström Gerdt, writes:
"I really enjoyed Lost Odyssey. I think Mr. Sakaguchi's still got it, the art direction was fantastic and the music some of Uematsu's best. Obviously I wanted to give it some creds by remixing it. I started doing some quirky electronica but couldn't for the life of me do a drum track that worked. Since it's a widely recognized fact that a certain Andrew Skrypnyk enjoys drums I thought I'd collaborate with him, sharing the drums like a kid after a divorce, 50% each. The concept became to do a sort of "drum battle" with us switching who's doing drums every section. For anyone that cares and likes to keep track, Skrypnyk did the first one and then every other one, I did the second one and.. well you get it. Then Skrypnyk sprinkled some of his magic on the arrangement too and here we are, a collaborative arrangement of Battlefield from Lost Odyssey."
"i liek drumz :3"
And AnSo finishes with:
"I also enjoy percussive elements and feel happy about stating that."
... and there you have it: scintillating revelations of percussive lust, right here on OCR. There's melody in this mix, to be sure, but it's clearly a drum-packed, rhythm-oriented arrangement, replete with elite feats of beat. Most of the variation from phrase to phrase involves changing up the rhythms, mutating the accompaniment for the simple, graceful lead motif with kicks, snares, hats, and plenty of less-identifiable bits. The final minute gets more elaborate, melodically and structurally, with an additional motif that adds some refreshing chromaticism; dig the held + bent-downwards ending. And the mix title? I looked up Mattias on IRC, where he was idling while drinking scotch and playing HoN... he explained that it's NOT actually Klingon for "That's what SHE said," but rather spells out "The Immortal Hironobu" - backwards. Edews Yzarc! I'll admit I find ReMixing fully-produced, modern game soundtracks much more challenging, since there's so much already THERE from a production standpoint, but I like the approach AnSo and Skryp took with keeping the melody simple and going crazy with the drums. Great, fun mix with very elaborate percussive showmanship from Mattias and Andrew!
