Up next we've got Mr. Burns with a DOUBLE RAINBOW (!!!), memingly arranging several tunes from Kirby's Adventure in a pleasant, floaty sort of synth pop/rock style:
"This remix is about 2.5 years old - I was only able to solve some its form issues when I revisited it a couple weeks ago. It has still got some issues I think, some forced continuity and a lack of stylistic identity, but I'm currently just trying to get some old mixes off my mind and out the door for someone to appreciate. Besides the Grape Garden and Rainbow Resort stage tunes, the Grape Garden stage select makes a brief appearance as well as an original melody, a synthesis of the themes that - hopefully - helps them feel a bit less juxtaposed.
All the bass, bells, pads, guitars, flutes, and harp things are Logic's Sculpture synth. It's the most interesting synth I have at my disposal currently. (I really need to broaden my synth/beat toolset beyond built-in Logic - I think a part of my brain still refuses to let go of the paradigm I learned from playing with midis at vgmusic.com - i.e. it all begins and ends in the piano roll.) Thanks for listening."
Thanks for submitting :) The vibe here, with all the percolatin' arpeggios and plucky motifs, really reminds me of the 'Special Stage' music from the original Sonic the Hedgehog; very carefree & drifting. I think the ReMixer actually did a great job of blending the themes into a cohesive whole, and Emunator seems to concur:
"I love the unique rhythms created from the interplay between your delay and your melody lines, especially in the intro. The whole mix is very easy to get lost in, your sounds all have a very retro edge to them (I particularly liked the guitar-style synth) but the production is extremely smooth and polished. It's an excellent combination that makes this track very, very listenable."
"I sometimes fall on the side of thinking synths imitating real instruments sound too fake, but I loved the lead "guitar" synth here. Rather than sounding like a fake guitar, it sounded like a synth with oodles of ex
pression.Actually, this whole song has tons of humanized touches for a synthetic song. Really pretty arrangement, a very easy pass in my book."
Agreed on the guitarish synth lead; I thought it was tasty, and was sequenced in a fashion that didn't attempt to "sell it" as an actual electric guitar. Following Brandon Strader's 'Poop,' this is a nice respite & calming (but still funky) groove that's hard not to dig. I'm glad Patrick revisited this & revised it to a point he was comfortable sharing with the world, as I think many will enjoy tasting these rainbows; great stuff!
