When an artist becomes known for a certain style/sound, it can often be challenging to experiment & produce something outside of that expectation. Nevertheless, it's something we not only encourage on OCR, I would go so far as to say that it's built into the community's DNA, and essentially a founding principle. That's why this consecutive mixpost from Rebecca E. Tripp is so cool - it offers a far more ambient/experimental spin than we're used to hearing from her, turning the minimalistic Twilight Princess "Snowpeak" source into something immersive, environmental, & very, very cold:
"I am extremely, extremely pleased with this cover. ^_^ This is the first thing I've produced (that wasn't a collaboration) that I've been really, truly proud of this season. Spring is coming... and winter is already ending where I live. Even though it's only January, there are spring birds and flowers everywhere. But I wanted to see the old year off with a TRULY FRIGID composition. This is my piece, "A Biting Voice Upon the Wind," which is based on the "Snowpeak" theme from Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It was my hope that this track would be almost as cold as my "Ice Cavern" remix from Ocarina of Time. It's sort of a sister piece to that composition!"

"I thought it could have been an issue adapting this in a way that would work with the Standards here, but once things picked up more around :39 with the synth accent and later the choir and vox lines around 1:06, I realized this could be different enough from the tone of the source, so props on making this work. Around 1:47, you first get that additional cameo theme in the back, which was my interpretation of the "biting voice" alluded to in the title. Rebecca does a nice job letting this piece breathe and evolve, all while keeping the source constantly in play (even just through the ambiance), then letting the last minute and a half just hang there while bringing back the "biting voice" and wind SFX. Good meditative stuff that I can't say we hear a lot of around these parts! Stay bundled up with this one. :-)"
Of course, it's June now, but it can be winter any time of the year... in your MIND. I can definitely see this being a good meditation piece, and I really dig how so many of the elements are so faint, and can only be "seen" through the whisping wind of a blizzard; it's a very visual piece, to me, in that specific sense. A compelling departure for Rebecca, who takes the wintry spirit of the source and plants the listener right in the midst of some beautiful, enveloping weather!

I hear the snow falling and the crunch of boots breaking frost.

It's a small area of TP, but it's my favorite in the game (plus I think the TP Hyrule Field theme is the best field theme in the series - contentious take...), and this remix does a great job in evoking the "edge of the world" feel it has. I especially love the final minute, with mostly environmental sounds. I try to do ambient stuff like this, but it's hard for me to flesh out melody and get beyond simply playing sustained pads in a down-tempo loop for 6 minutes. Great work and great patience!

Snowpeak was a wonderful song that I never thought would see a quality remix. The strong sense of longing, isolation, and beautiful desolation is all represented and delicately expounded upon. Thank you, RebeccaETripp.
