More Threshold, this time from Benjamin Briggs, formerly known as chthonic. He writes:
"new song is new! that's right, I have TWO tracks on the Link's Awakening project, and they are 4 years apart. because I be beastin' erryday. this track came out differently than I had expected it to, but I'm still very pleased with the result. it features some odd soundscapes, and lots of interpretation of the original melodies... I view this as a sister (or maybe distant cousin) remix to "It's My Turn to Dream," and that's why the title is so wordy. :P"
Definitely one of the more upbeat/chippier tracks on the album, BB's contribution applies his flamboyant, nostalgic style to the ever-popular 'Tal Tal Heights' theme. Nice shifty gating and syncopated synths and percussion, with a particularly funky warbled, cross-panned synth lead entering later. Really slick detail work throughout, and I dig some of the less electronic components of the drum track, the lockstep harmonies, and the myriad breaks & fills. Project director Bradley Burr writes:
"I particularly love the bass and lead programming and synth work. Originally, bLiNd had offered to do some work on this track, and when he had to cut back on the projects he was involved in, I was worried that there would be a significant dropoff in talent between him and whoever took over for him. I was so pumped when I saw that Ben wanted to take a shot at remixing this one that I basically just told him that it was his before I even heard a WIP of the track. I think it turned out quite well."
"So many projects, so little time..." has definitely been a recurring mantra of 2010, so it's not surprising that project directors have to be flexible enough to adapt to competing priorities and schedules. I'm glad Ben stepped in, and I definitely think this mix turned out great. As mentioned, it's a little more enthusiastic and perhaps more approachable than the general overall aesthetic of the album, but not flagrantly or disruptively so. It actually serves as kind of an island close to halfway through the lake of tracks, providing a light breather before you wade back into darker territory, and as such is both effective & appreciated. Great stuff from Ben, whose other track is an excellent contribution to Threshold as well!
