A short-but-transcendentally-sweet meditation on the sanctuary theme from Minish Cap, from Rebecca E. Tripp:

"This is my cover of the "Elemental Sanctuary" theme from Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. It's been some time since I produced a Minish Cap arrangement! I've actually been on a big MC kick lately though, so the tunes have been stuck in my head on a regular basis. This arrangement uses orchestral instruments + one unnatural-sounding bell synth to add a more "otherworldly" touch. I wanted to make a "live" version of this beautiful theme, since there are so few orchestral remixes out there of MC music, but I also felt that the track needed something a little bit more ethereal on top of the glockenspiel, harp, chimes, metals, and celesta which comprise the iconic crystal sounds."

A big part of arranging is having a knack for texture & instrument pairing, and this is something that, even as her production skills have improved & evolved, Rebecca's always had a great handle on. This brief interlude is no exception, setting a stage and populating it with delicate, metallic, & plucked timbres. Larry writes:

"A lovely arrangement approach that takes all of the tension out of the source and replaces it with a wholesome, almost angelic feel. I didn't get an "otherworldly" vibe as much as a peaceful one, but, hey, that may just be me. :-)"

Depends on the world, no doubt; a serene, reflective planet would fit the bill. Great stuff from Rebecca which, while not as ambitious & elaborate as some of her other work, has an intimate charm & atmosphere.
