Finally, to cap off our second Balance and Ruin mixflood, we've got an absolutely gorgeous 'Aria' new age vocal ballad collab between the Aversas, with a cello assist from AeroZ, reminding me of "Into the West" and, for that matter, "Deliverance of the Heart". The thick initial progression of pads and jangling pedal steel guitar briefly echo the Twin Peaks opener, achieving this feelng of suspended animation & floating through a peaceful ether. Jill's cross-panned vocalizing comes in and there's just this transcendental moment where everything freezes in time and space and... well, it's darn purdy... We're talking double-rainbow territory. AeroZ writes:
"My opinion on FF6 as a game is my favorite one in the series. I know I've praised FFV with its music and all... (it is still a goldmine, yes) but overall FF6 is the golden one with the music, characters, and story. It's super, really. My best memory of all times actually is when I was home from school with a nasty cold and playing through the game and drinking as much hot cocoa as I wanted. Those were golden times, but I'm looking forward to our next project together!
I was very excited when I heard that Andrew wanted me to lay down some cello on the "Aria" track. Then when I got to hear the result with Jillian's voice and the musical landscape backing it up I was very thrilled about how the voice and cello works so well together. Hope this isn't the last remix we do together! ^^"
Baller cocoa nostalgia; Sebastian is the icing on a cake that takes ethereal musical beauty to a different plane. Andy can do uptempo cyberpunk electronica, dubstep, you name it, but when he collaborates with his wife Jillian they tend to work in a more deliberate style where their skills & influences really complement one another. The word "synergy" has nearly been ruined as a corporate buzz word, but I'd like to reclaim it (at least temporarily) and just say that their synergy is what makes this mix work so well. This is a stunning end to our second flood, and after posting 25 mixes from the album, there's still so much more to hear on Balance and Ruin... I hope you've been enjoying the album for the past weeks, and hope you'll lend these additional ten mixes your time & feedback!

On the edge of
When the last of light gives way,
The swell of the tide
Will serve as your guide,
And spirit drift away.
We will glide upon a wave.
And I promise to be
What fate asks of me,
From waking to the grave.
