Of his short-but-sweet, piano driven mellow jazz/rock instrumental from ARMed and DANGerous, melody lowercasedly writes:
"i'm coming into this project a bit late, but big ups to jade for silencing her critics and taking her determination full circle with this amazing tribute to wild arms. i've never played the game myself, but found inspiration in the scene where this song is first heard (courtesy youtube, and jade for fishing it out). it features cecilia, the princess of adlehyde, a coming-of-age character whose deepest desire is to be acknowledged as a person rather than a political figurehead. through her love for her travelling companion rudy she experiences an epiphany and realizes her subjects do adore her because of her caring nature. the sparse instrumentation in the original seems to embrace the scene as a moment of quiet reflection, but my interpretation of it was something more of a paradigm shift so i wanted to illustrate that with new rhythms, jazzier chord voicings, a time sig change, and modulation. the core motifs of the song are preserved but that Nujabes kick is not ending any time soon ;)"
Excellent work on the arrangement, which makes some great calls and plays to the artist's strengths while developing thoughtfully and substantially in just under three minutes. It might be a little liberal at times, but it never crosses the line; Palpable writes:
"This is pretty loose on the melodies, but with the chords intact for the body of the song and some references sprinkled here and there, I thought this arrangement was ok. Wouldn't have minded a little more reference to the source. The thing I liked most here was the rhythm, this had a great, breezy swing to it. The drumloops, the piano, the bass, and the synth really locked in step without sounding rigid."
Ditto on the breezy, refreshing swing - this is the type of mix that's good for moments of relaxation, clarity, and contemplation, and represents the type of heart & soul that characterize the overall album; good stuff!
