Guifrog goes orchestral - while still working in some nice world music influences - in this very narrative arrangement from Sonic 3D Blast:
"Here's another attempt of doing a melodramatic mix. Heh. So what's the story this time? In which place? It can be any you want, coz I didn't intend to focus on a specific country this time (yet you'll probably notice a slight unexpected Asian feel :P).
About volcanoes, you know what those scary things do when they explode, right? They basically destroy everything in their surroundings and leave nothing else but a huge pile of dust. Comma. You also know what happens next, yeah? Well, they create nests. Our lively Earth has a hot deadly past. You can tell we need to fall in order to stand up, we need chaos so the order's set, and we need eruptions so the life has new and fertile ground to sprout; that said, there's many sweet things that only happen for a bitter price.
My track's divided in acts - 'before', 'during' and 'after' the eruption, which you'll probably identify by yourselves. I gave personality to a few 'special guest' instruments - oboe's the life wind, triangle's when it touches the ground, piccolo's a newly born bird. Sure, that's a metaphor. All in all, this track's not about volcanoes. It's about recreating, reviving, renewing."
Garth, that was a haiku! Seriously deep stuff, there, and I love that Guilherme thinks this all through & includes it with his submissions. This mix really does develop & tell a story, and is quite dramatic, with a diverse palette and lots of detail in the part-writing. The degree to which this is an orchestral arrangement varies throughout, but the transitions are all VERY natural - some of the artist's best, most intricate sequencing work to date. Emunator concurs:
"Absolutely loved your sub letter and the concept behind this mix. This is probably your most ambitious arrangement to date, and from the sounds of it, one of your best produced, as well. It's nice to hear you progressing and beginning to approach things with a more bombastic, cinematic edge. This song just feels larger than life and I can't speak enough to how much I enjoyed your arrangement."
Strong words of praise, but deserved; this mix feels more expansive & "epic" than previous arrangements, but still works in quite a bit of mixed instrumentation and doesn't sacrifice the playful, whimsical qualities that have made Guifrog's past mixes so much fun. Great stuff from GF that takes it up a notch on concept, arrangement, & production!
