To make it short I'd like to request a remix of the song "Emiya". It's a song from the visual novel Fate/stay night and maybe some know it because of its anime adaption (and there was also a remix of Emiya by Kenji Kawai).
is a mix of techno and piano, simple but in some way (in my opinion) epic composed and one of my favorite tracks I can't stop listen to.To date there are some remixes: the already mentioned
, a remix by its original composer (I guess) James Harris called
, another remix done by James Harris called Emiya #0 and some other fan-made tunes.So why do I request another remix if a acceptable selection is out there? Well, first I want to see how the remixers here would handle it and second most of the remixes are great or good at least but still I see potential. I guess Blizzard would say "to make it more epic". For example the characters of the song (Emiya is both a character and a battle theme) use a kind of magic formula to activate their magic and this fact is rarely used in the available remixes (I only know Emiya #0). Let me write down the text of one of the characters:
I am the bone of my sword
Steel is my body and fire is my blood
I have created over a thousand blades
Unknown to death
Nor known to life
Have withstood pain to create many weapons
Yet, those hands will never held anything
So as I pray - Unlimited Blade Works
Nice, isn't it?
Talking about the genre I'd say it should also be a electronic piece mixed with orchestral elements (or to say it in VGM language Kenichiro Fukui crossing Hitoshi Sakimoto *laughs*) but in the end it's up to the remixer(s).
Thank you very much for reading and I'm looking forward to the responses. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
