Is it me, or does it seem like we're getting fewer orchestral ReMixes lately? Here to help change that is newcomer Archangel, aka Jaka Čibej, w/ some non-album FFV action:
"This is my second submission, let's CELEBRATE! The first one was an arrangement of the Final Fantasy Prelude, which is currently still in the judging process, but I reckon it won't be accepted as it is probably a bit too conservative for the tastes of the OCRemix primarchs. Thus, I decided to make another arrangement for my debut (although I'm participating in the Final Fantasy IX and Seiken Densetsu 3 projects too, so this medley might not turn out to be a debut after all).
As far as the remix is concerned, I chose some of my favorite songs from Final Fantasy V. At the time I was watching HCBailly's playthrough show Let's Play Final Fantasy V on Youtube, and the feeling of nostalgia really pervaded me, so I guess you could say that was a source of inspiration.
I made the arrangement in FL Studio 8, using EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, Symphonic Choirs, Stormdrum, RA, and some other plugins and soundfonts. I used a lot of exotic instruments (like shakuhachi, erhu, Irish low whistle, Uilleann pipes, duduk and so forth) to make the medley sound more - adventurous, I guess. It just seemed like the right choice. =)"
Holy crap, we just got upgraded to primarchs... thanks, Jaka, and a happy belated 24th birthday! I was just thinking to myself that we used to get more orchestral/classical submissions and that things have started swaying more rock/electronica/chiptune, so this was a nice reminder that there are plenty of folk out there, old blood and new, still putting together some awesome symphonic arrangements. This one manages to avoid medleyitis while covering several FFV themes in a coherent, well-executed piece that intros with solo piano but shortly thereafter brings in beautiful strings and bells. The subsequent introduction of ethnic instrumentation and BIG DRUMS courtesy Ra & Stormdrum keeps things fresh and pushes the mix forward with a dramatic momentum; color me impressed. As the man behind our FFV album series, The Fabled Warriors, hopefully Shariq can convince Archangel to contribute something for a future installment:
"HOLY CRAP HOW AWESOME IS THIS REMIX!!! It's possible I might be biased, but I think that this is a really well put together piece of music. Production and performance is outta sight. Really wonderful interpretation."
Agreed; great debut from Archangel that shows depth & breadth and comes at the perfect time, reminding us of the power of orchestral arrangement, augmented by well-integrated ethnic instrumentation + piano. DEFINITELY looking forward to hearing more!
