Final Fantasy VIII - Compression of Time


Recommended Posts

I was kinda surprised I never made a thread for this. That or my eyesight is going faster than I thought haha. Anyway, I posted this to my YT channel awhile ago but decided I wanted to make it a full remix.

Nowhere near done yet. The transition is an outline and so is the beginning of the second half. Mostly I'm trying to find a way to really blow the roof off that transition but haven't had time to experiment enough. But definitely am digging sort of flipping the tonality both chordally using the bass guitar and adding a serious dark militant vibe to it. Main theme is sort of light and shadow. Sort of similar to my first ocremix I guess. Anyway, I'll post more when I get to it.

It’s sounds really promising! The first half is really good for me. With the voice variations, you make a good atmosphere.

An electro rhythm starts at the 2nd half. Some good sonorities, but I think it lose in coherence. I like the idea of a rhythm in this 2nd part, but I feel it too powerful compared to the 1st half. It seems like we hear two different pieces. The rhyme can be lightened IMO. 

A 2nd point disturbs me. I well recognize accompany of the original, but not the main melody. You made good variations on this one. But I think it need to appears nearer than we hear it in the OST. You can for example place this melodic line when the rhythm starts. 

Anyway, I really like the direction you choose with this mix. Interesting atmosphere with the beginning, and a good potential on the following !

Thank you for your wonderful comment! Concerning the two different pieces, it's kinda where I'm going with it. I don't wanna reveal the name yet but it's a play on a more angelic though somber side and an intense, sinister side. I definitely have a lot of work helping those two sides meet but it's (hopefully) the last piece in a set of pieces I've done that have two sides to them. Still, maybe as I begin to build the second half more, I'll come to the conclusion that it's too intense haha. But honestly, I like how relentless it sounds! Maybe I need more power in the first half to compensate 🤣. I don't know yet! Need to get to the end first.

 

As far as the lack of melody in part two. It's just not written in yet though I'm hoping it takes more of a harmonic, though still present role when I do write it in.

Hey, I like this source (my favorite from FF8), and I think the light touch this takes for most of the arrangement so far is a nice, different direction that folk normally take this, and the singing adds some really nice flavor to all of it.

Good work, keep it up.
