First off, as you've hopefully already seen, we've JUST released our FIRST commercial album, For Everlasting Peace: 25 Years of Mega Man!! $9.99 digital download on CD Baby & iTunes - please lend us your support & consider buying it!!
Alex (Radiowar) has an awesome track on there, plus my own arrangement that I had originally planned for inclusion on Maverick Rising finally sees the light of day as a collab with Diggi Dis, and he knocked it out of the park! Plus Sixto, plus halc, plus Joshua Morse, plus DarkeSword... the list goes on, and we really need your support & also appreciate ratings & reviews on the iTunes store!
But back to Alex; he sent in this dreamy, downbeat synth-pop FF6 arrangement with the following note:
"This was my entry for zircon's FF6 contest from last month. Did not seem to make much of an impression on people, buuut I still like it! Inspired by the opening credits from Drive."
It's funny, because the track of Alex's that DID end up on Balance and Ruin ("Stone Drum") was one that took a few listens for me to really get into. My initial reaction was lukewarm, I'll confess, but by the third listen I was completely sold, and the whole thing finally clicked for me. This arrangement is more intuitive & accessible right from the get-go; perhaps not as deep, but a very pleasant, transcending vibe that actually reminds me of Leitbur's two vocal tracks from B&R - go figure! I love Emunator's judge comments:
"I've gotta say, I like what you've done here. This is a very restrained, additive mix that doesn't grab you right away and evolves at a very slow pace. However, I find it engaging all the same because of how your melodies morph and change up along with the dynamic curve of the song... it's the little change-ups that count here. Overall I'm really feeling the tact that you put into arranging this theme into an unexpected and unconventional style. It doesn't really need to have any flashy transitions or massive breakdowns, it just works. "
In all my years, I've never heard a judge refer to the "tact" someone put into an arrangement... and yet it totally makes sense. While other judges expressed a relative preference for Radiowar's more traditional approach, everyone pretty much agreed that he did a good job with the style he was shooting for. Compositionally it's a bit minimalist, but things do evolve, and most importantly I think the artist captures a very unhinged, ethereal aesthetic effectively. This is music to disappear into, to clear your mind and let your thoughts flow, or - as the artist's stated inspiration in itself suggests - play on a long car trip, preferably at night. Transporting, shimmering work from Radiowar!
