Scott Buckley (www.scottbuckley.com.au) debuts with a beautiful, striking, epic orchestral & choral arrangement of Baldur's Gate - a game with a fantastic score that we've nevertheless only posted one other ReMix of, back in 2006:
"My interpretation of one of gaming's most iconic RPG themes (in my opinion). I was terrible at playing the game as a kid, but Michael Hoenig's score captivated me. I played with the rhythms and orchestration of the themes, adding bigger percussion and some more exciting orchestral and vocal elements to bring it into a more modern, hard-hitting cinematic context. The track was sequenced in Sonar using predominantly EWQL Orchestral libraries. I hope you guys enjoy it! :)"
Really strong, memorable mix here, displaying a firm grasp on cinematic instrumentation, arrangement, and production; starting off with a subtle, eastern soundscape, Scott deftly builds tension with background vocalizing and running percussion until BAM: 1'09" hits and it's all-out WAR. DEM BRASS. I love the longer format, too - often orchestral VGM arrangements go for a briefer, cue/sketch feel, but at seven minutes and change, this ReMix is here to STAY; it's not just a skirmish or a battle, it's the whole ballgame - the stakes couldn't be higher, everything's on the table, and listeners are in for an action-packed ride on a legendary scale. Not much else to say, other than you'll have to hear it for yourself - amazing debut from Scott, who knocks it out of the park & gives a very deserving OST a Hollywood makeover that hits hard, smart, and long. Great stuff, dying to hear more!
