Got time for a lovely Wind Waker folk serenade/jam? Make time! Hyperduck Soundworks writes:
"We tried to keep somewhat faithful to the original style of Wind Waker, which was the initial aim for the remix medley, with the introduction beginning at the main menu of Wind Waker, out in the sea! We threw in some elements of other pieces which we loved. I think if we hadn't have caught ourselves on, we'd still be putting pieces into it, so many to choose from! We made this with a Red5 RV10 condenser, Cubase Studio 5, and seagulls. And wind chimes! And a boomerang."
I've heard getting seagulls to cooperate in the studio can be a real drag - they'll just poop on your Neve & start chewing your acoustic insulation the second you leave the room. Perhaps the boomerang proved a potent disincentive to such tomfoolery, but whatever the case, the mix warmly embraces Celtic-ish, folk underpinnings, reminding me a little of Mr. Taucer's Kirby mix from days of yore. With the (lyricless) singing toward the conclusion and the swaying, acoustic sense of celebration & comfort, this mix just plain makes you feel good, put simply. It avoids medleyitis by not trying to use each theme as a distinct, fully articulate section, but instead incorporates them thoughtfully into a single musical "ex
"You guys could have written the music for WindWaker better then the original composer! Am I allowed to say that!? This was one incredible remix. I almost felt as if I would float away listening to this track!"
You're actually NOT allowed to say that, Roger; your license to communicate has been revoked ;) Arranging is different from composing, but yeah... I certainly wouldn't complain if this mix showed up in-game, that's for damn sure. Beautiful, celebratory... almost conjures the upbeat pageantry of a Wes Anderson film, for me. The weather outside is crap today, but I'm smiling, and it's because of this mix, which adds its optimism, character & soul to the whole of 25YEARLEGEND.
