"One thing I have noticed about remixing video game music frequently is that every now and then I come across some theme from a game that I have never played before and like it, and the turnabout sisters theme from phoenix wright is one of them.
Knowing pretty much nothing about the game (all I knew was that the main protagonist was a lawyer) naming it involved me researching the series, various stories that I don't remember about cases that involved beating people round the head with clocks, and from all my hours of research I came up with the name True Evening, which apparetly is the english meaning of maya's Japanese name. Yes I did too much research. Anyway, I like the name think it suits the remix.
SOOOOOO.... I was listening to a lot of europe and bon jovi at the point of making this remix which comes out in the means of big synths, big drums and confirmation that I was born in the wrong era. So obviously, style wise, this remix sounds exactly the same as every other remix i've done :P"
Nice. Counselor Wright is currently in contention for addition as one of our upper-right-hand-corner site mascots, and seems like a shoe-in, so the timing of this mix can only support his case. Sugary, sweet, synth-driven, melodic light pop that'll make you feel comfortable - Vinnie sums it up well:
"Reminds me of an early 80's sitcom theme, like Silver Spoons. Very warm and floaty, dreamlike soundscape. I think you did a great job with the backing parts, very colorful. This might be my new favorite of yours, though it helps that I love the source."
You can almost picture Mr. Belvedere's stern face, mid-chastising Wesley, melt into a knowing, avuncular smile. Or Kirk Cameron make sarcastic remarks, when deep down he actually cares, before he became a crazy proselytizing fictional firefighter person. Will's other mixes have varied in degrees of their respective "eighties-ness", but this one takes the cake; I was half-expecting Limahl to start busting out a vocal. Will shows us that smile again, tells us about the facts of life, doesn't move to the beat of just one drum, makes a go, makes it grow, and learns all about those things you just can't buy, to paraphrase the cathode rays of my youth. Personally, I love me some 80's TV theme songs, and this really DOES sound like one, so whether he was trying to capture that feel specifically or not, he succeeded. Excellent sweet & warm stuff from Willrock that really crystallizes a lot of the best elements of his style in a single arrangement.
