More Humans + Gears? Damn right! I think the first three mixes we've posted from this album have been absolutely fantastic... and I think the next three are just as great! Ziwtra, aka Youngjin Hahn, is an impeccable arranger who crafts every mix into a piece that bursts with energy but also refinement and detail. Beyond his musical talents, however, he's also a talented coder and designer. When I first saw H+G pimped in forum signatures, the aesthetic had a certain brown, busy look that I wasn't 110% sure would work well for the album art & site. When I saw the minimalist, elegant, red & black final art and site design that Ziwtra came up with, though, I was lovin' it; very direct, very functional, and very thematically consistent with the album itself. He also worked with me and accepted my pesky requests (I asked for the red "X" favicon, which he did a great job on and looks downright dudical to my eyes) in the final stages of getting everything prepared. So, on a completely non-musical level, major props there. Now, for the musical props: this mix rox your sox. It also roxed the director's sox - quoth Avaris:
"Ziwtra not only handled the entire website for the project but provided three creative mixes to boot. This mix absolutely blew me away with its RIDICULOUS sequencing. Even after living in Ireland for a year and being friends with some incredible irish traditional musicians this mix still kicks some serious 'arse.' It was a joy to see his tracks become more and more polished over the course of this project. This is a track not to be missed!"
I love the "warm-up" style intro and, of course, the gloriously epic violin lead... SO MANY TRIPLETS! It soars, it saunters, it jigs, and it does indeed kick arse, before handing the torch over to some cross-panned accordions. The leads here totally steal the spotlight, but damn if the accompanying bits aren't fantastic as well: piano, shuffling, syncopated drums - this arrangement truly embraces the Celtic inspirations that Yasunori Mitsuda is known for, and takes Youngjin's already formidable sequencing prowess to another level. Grand, visionary, and singular, this track alone would make the entire album worth a listen - it's that good. Seriously epic.
