Celeste - First Steps (Metris Remix)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! This is the first remix I've ever worked on, so I wanted to base it on a track I love. That happened to be First Steps from Celeste (an incredible game). The atmosphere it creates when opening the player to the game is immaculate. And the retro tuning of the instrumentation I adore. When developing it, I wanted to somewhat modernize it whilst retaining the emotional and atmospheric beats of First Steps as a whole.

 

Hope y'all enjoy!

'First Steps' is one of my favourite VGM pieces of all time from a stunning game, so already felt hugely invested in this!

You've been very faithful to that descending piano arp which sets the scene really well, and I think the use of strings and windy ambience compliment everything really nicely. Stylistically, I absolutely can't fault it, and I love the little individual touches you've made to make it your own arrangement.

Some of the chord patterns are incorrect which is a little jarring, and I feel both the piano chords and the plucky lead synth could use a little more reverb/echo to enable them to blend into the overall piece - I'd probably have chosen a less punchy lead synth even if not something identical to the original, but I think you're really on to something here!
