One last HoH ReMix - for now - from judge, ReMixer, and long-time Metroid arranger DarkeSword, who had the first Metroid Prime mix on the site, as well as the first mixes for its two sequels. Shariq writes:
"I wanted to try doing something a little cooler and jazzier with my next Metroid Prime remix. This is a bit of a departure from my more electronic oriented MP pieces, but I think it really works. There's a lot of Rhodes piano in here, along with some fun ride cymbal patterns and clarinet (!), an instrument that I think is really underrepresented on OCR. The weird wooshy sounds are actually meant to be Metroids. Enjoy!"
First off, clarinet is definitely underrepresented on OCR... I think there are some good reasons for that, not the least of which is that it's also underrepresented in pop music, but also sample libraries tend to have difficulty with it, especially for use in any sort of jazz context where passages are more dynamic. Just the other day I was saying how we need a Klezmer ReMix, but clarinet is hard to emulate, and there aren't many in the community who play it, so it's funny to see Shariq making more or less the same point. Very mellow, very smooth & understated arrangement that favors jazz & acoustic elements over electronic textures, ending up with a piece that conjures Mission Impossible in its intro and then expands on the main melodic motif with hand-offs between icy cold piano and clarinet, as subtle choir & swirling synth pads undulate underneath. Rhythm picks up towards the end, giving the piece more energy & speed, but despite the brisk tempo this still comes off as more of a chill, toe-tapping jam than anything more explicitly aggressive. Samus be sneaking around, doing covert things, and getting her jazz on. In space. Nice to see more from MP3, and yet another solid track from Harmony of a Hunter!
