A Wise man once said: You can never have too much "Aquatic Ambiance" ;) Kadmium (Jesse Higginson) follows up an impressively demonic Doom vocal debut ReMix from wayyyy back in 2009 with his own take on this watery 16-bit classic, opting this time for a cinematic, pulsing orchestral/electronic hybrid with a nice Darth Vader/scuba mask (take your pick) effect:
"This is my remix of "Aquatic Ambiance," nominally in the style of Hans Zimmer/Remote Control Productions. I've been going a bit mad composing for something else and needed a break. I've been listening to the Man of Steel soundtrack a lot recently and have always been fond of Zimmer's style. An OC ReMix email reminded me of "Aquatic Ambiance," so I thought I'd try my hand at a remix of that, in this style. This is what came out of it. I hope that you enjoy it."
Palpable also referenced the Darth:
"This is a pretty short track, but has a great build for its 2:34 duration, and offers something new for this done-to-death VGM song. Both the quiet Darth Vader sections and the booming Hans Zimmer choruses are well-executed, though the segues between the two were abrupt and could have been foreshadowed a little more. I also think there's a slight rigidity issue with the lead instruments in the choruses, but it's a nitpick. Great stuff from Jesse!"
"That was unexpected. It's short and sweet, but Jesse definitely came through with something cool; never thought I'd hear "Aquatic Ambiance" as a tense, potentially heroic cinematic cue. Nice work."
I liked Man of Steel a little more than most seemed to, but I tend to prefer soundtracks with a stronger & more memorable melody. This mix is like having your cake and eating it too, from that perspective - a kinetic, Zimmer-style treatment of a dominant, unforgettable melody. This is certainly quite a shift from Jesse's debut piece; not sure if he's changed gears in the last five years or if he just works in a lot of styles/forms, but both mixes are WELL worth your time. Dramatic stuff that executes a concept/vision very effectively and, at less than three minutes, rather efficiently as well!
