Well, happy post-Thanksgiving to all the Americans out there, and happy... weekend? ... to everyone else. I rather like Thanksgiving... while the historical foundation/context may have involved a merely temporary collaboration between colonizing and indigenous peoples, the nature of which ultimately ended up going in a much different (tragic) direction, the abstract concept of taking some time to articulate what you're thankful for, and why, seems worthwhile. Plus: Turkey's good. So's Willrock's latest mix, which I was meaning to post yesterday, but got distracted while playing some BioShock & New Super Mario Bros. Wii w/ Vinnie. The artist writes:
"God knows where the inspiration for this came from :P All I know is that I decided to remix the ballad of the wind fish, one of my favorite game themes, in a style that I have never tried before (and one that you guys are tbh probably sick of) :P Needless to say, it has taken me a while, but I have done it, and I think it is a little better polished than my previous subs so far."
Wow... I'm not sick of this, or anything like it, at all - I've always loved the source, too, and this is my favorite arrangement of Willrock's to date. It's accessible, upbeat, and provides the best foundation yet for Will's soloing, which is par for course, i.e. awesome. The synth patch used for most of the solos reminds me of Daft Punk's 'Digital Love,' which Vinnie and I were just talking about yesterday as being particularly badass, and the overall structure is easy to get into while also making significant alterations to the melody that keep things recognizable but functionally unique. Palpable writes:
"I can always expect some great synth solos from Will at this point, but I also thought the new writing and chords for the simple Wind Fish song were very creative and worked like they were always meant to be written that way... This has a whole lot to like, and it's probably still my favorite arrangement Will has done."
Ditto. Most judges did point out that the drums could have been a bit more interesting, which I can see, but this was a very minor qualm with a supremely solid & soaring mix. Will just keeps getting better, and this piece proves it - awesome work that I, for one, will definitely keep coming back to!
