Thanks for the feedback & sharing, everyone; the response to Threshold of a Dream has been great! Last but not least, we've got a collab between director prophetik himself and Fishy, a mellow electric guitar & sax "duet" (technically, layered) that's smooth, warm, and gets progressively bluesier as Cain changes amps/fx for some grittier timbres. Kinda reminds me of the Law & Order theme if it mated with Kenny G and produced completely awesome offspring. Brad writes:
"Another old track, I picked this up in 2005 as a second track after "finishing" my Face Shrine remix. I actually wrote this remix in theory class, without listening to it before sending the chords and structure off to PriZm. Oops. He was the original guitarist on this one (see the bonus track Villa), but thanks to a changing job description, Pascal was unable to re-record the guitars to fix a few mistakes that were in the original recording. Fishy graciously stepped in, learned PriZm's parts, and recorded his own version to help me out. This is another track recorded ages ago, as I believe that the date on the original recording for me was mid-November 2005."
I do wanna commend Brad specifically for not only seeing this project through to completion, but for having some great tracks of his own on it. He delivered a solid, complete package to me and Larry, and was easy to coordinate with and flexible/patient in waiting for us to get all our ducks in a row so we could release smoothly. As smooth as this arrangement, I dare say... It's a pretty liberal interpretation, but it's amazing to hear very straightforward GBS tones come to life in the hands of two talented musicians, and the interplay between Brad & Cain sounds dynamic & intimate. Not in a manlove way, just you know... with the emotionality and what not.
Right, I'll stop there: This is a great cut that finishes out the album proper and also finishes out our flood of debut mixes. Thanks to Brad and the talented mixers on Threshold, we've all got something under our non-denominational, metaphorical Christmas trees this holiday season. Congratulations to all involved, and respect to the original composers of one of the first classic handheld video game soundtracks!
