Pizzicato IN YO FACE; not usually the type of instrument/articulation to intro an electronica track, or elicit such capitalized enthusiasm, Mattias makes the plucked string ingredient part of his Regular Ordinary Swedish Meal Time:
"Shariq, being an awesome guy, invited me to participate in his Final Fantasy V project and I didn't hesitate. Shariq had this fantastic concept about portraying each job in Final Fantasy V with a musical theme written inthe "style" of that job. I got a few options and settled on making a track for the 'Thief' job. Ancient Library definitely seemed like the perfect match with its slightly ominous sound and looking back that was a good choice.
The basic idea was to make a track that sounded like a Thief sneaking around in the library, conceptualizing a bit further. Basically, I created the string pattern and then did nothing for two weeks because I had no idea how to continue. After some serious brainstorming I decided to make it a very clean mix, simple if you will, with focus on lighter percussion and instruments. Since I've got a serious thing for bell sounds that quickly became the main hook and it just progressed from there, adding some quirky synths along the way. I know it sounds slightly repetitive, much like Claustrophobia, but I've really tried to make subtle movements in the sound to make it work. Also, I really like simple but effective un-tss."
That's... what she said? Sure. The intro almost feels like something out of a 1950's horror film, but things quickly get electronic, with layered textures creating a sinister, sneaky vibe, as advertised. Chirpier, subtle bits percolate through the latter portions, as synthesizer cat filter sweeps & thwacks us out. Nice minimalist vibe that incorporates a couple non-electronic instruments for flavor and manages to evoke both slinky, shadowed espionage and some happier, more major-key rainbow/unicorn bits - good stuff.
