Gonna keep things moving right along with this floaty, airborn chiptune EDM arrangement from DDRKirby(ISQ) off of B&R, which blends several sources & influences:
"This was my entry into zircon's Final Fantasy VI Remix Contest, which ended up tying for second place and making it into Balance and Ruin as a result! :D This song features a handful of references and cameo melodies, including, first and foremost, the arpeggio sequence from the Fez track "Adventure," which is featured at the beginning and end of this track. Big shoutout to Disasterpeace for giving me the OK for me to use it, and definitely check out the Fez soundtrack if you haven't already! To be completely honest, I actually didn't have any sort of clever plan or meaning behind featuring it -- I was just working on the intro to the song and it just sort of... happened. :P
Then at 0:33-0:58, I threw in a melody from one of my original songs, "Fractale," before we finally get kicking into the main chorus and meat of the song. It's pretty standard 9-bit stuff from me until 1:55 where I empty out the mix and go into an arrangement that's more similar to something you would hear out of an NES 2A03 track (but not quite, since I'm still using delay/reverb/etc.). There's a nod to Terra's theme at 2:20, and then the build at 2:39 is the "Mega Man" section. To top things off, I crammed Setzer's theme in at 2:54 for the last iteration of the chorus. Fun stuff, hope you guys enjoy it!"
I certainly did; definitely one of the chippier tracks on Balance and Ruin, and even goes FULL CHIP @ 1'55" as Timmie mentions. Album director zircon writes:
"The Blackjack theme, along with Setzer's theme, is one of my favorites from FF6. It has this great sense of motion, and really captures the spirit of flying all over the world with total freedom. DDRKirby's light and airy style fits that composition perfectly, and expands it out in new directions. Also, I love how he worked in Setzer's theme for the first part of the track and made it flow."
Agreed; there's also a lightness to the overall arrangement approach in terms of incorporating various sources, and it all combines for a free-spirited & chiptastical flight through the clouds, fulfilling the promise of its title. Great work!
