More orchestral? You're darn tootin' - newcomer Kevin Penkin (www.kevinpenkin.com) writes:
"I have heard many different arrangements of One Winged Angel and have experienced the work in many different recorded and live forms. I have realised that most of the versions I had listened to had 1 thing in common, the structure. The instrumentation might change or something might get put in the middle of the work, but to my knowledge there hasn't been a complete rework of OWA outside of Crisis Core. This is what I wanted to change if I was actually going to try and arrange the tune. While writing the opening section I kept on thinking "Liberi Fatali would work great here" and eventually came into the piece."
For my money, tefnek really deconstructed OWA pretty drastically with his classic 'The End,' but that was a different ballgame/genre. For Kevin's take, think "epic orchestral mashup of two epic themes from FF's 7 & 8" and you've more or less got the idea; solid production initially but then as the piece grows in complexity there's some superb detail work on runs & some especially graceful solo winds towards the end. It's clear the ReMixer had a specific idea with regards to the arrangement, and it's also clear he was able to implement that idea very effectively; OA writes:
"This is a really intelligently arranged orchestral mashup, with the themes fitting together very well. The sequencing and samples are pretty good, with the flute solo being very fluid. I think this is really well done; great concept and solid execution."
"I think the arrangement here is stellar, and the way the two themes are incorporated really works very well together. I like the subtle changes of melody, and the obvious structural changes really add something to the piece."
Really excellent debut from Kevin, who takes on a titanic track and manages to incorporate another standout Uematsu classic in an arrangement that frames both themes in a new light. Coherent, articulate, and powerful, this mix definitely has me looking forward to hearing more!
