Composer Meteo writes:

"The Impulse soundtrack started in February 2012 when I responded to a post on The game itself was a free-range development deal where composers could contribute tracks as they wanted and I volunteered to contribute 9 tracks. I haven't gotten to work on a spacey-puzzle game like this before and I'm still extremely excited I got to. This meant I could experiment with very different textures, structures, and all kinds of fun stuff I could practice where I couldn't before. This is the first production I've ever done where I had full artistic freedom, could use all my highest-quality sets, and make no compromises for sound quality. No excuses this time around, it was time to really step up to the plate and show what I could do."

This shimmering electronica piece is packed w/ a lot of texture and technique, showing how Neblix has progressed not only in terms of production but building energy and working with dynamics over time. Just as when Joshua Morse ReMixed zircon's score to Fittest, bLiNd & Josh Whelchel took on Abadoss' music from Trenches, and Mazedude & Morse arranged Kunal's score to Missile Master, it's great to see the meta-tastical "ReMixer arranging ReMixer's Original" ouroboros action at play. Congrats to Meteo for an original soundtrack that's got a lot of creativity, diversity, and some eyebrow-raising track titles, and to Neblix for an excellent arrangement!

Always cool to hear ReMixers work on songs composed and put together by other ones. Nice way to get a lot of ideas and come up with lots of sweet arrangements, especially with production that sounds this nice. Extremely kick ass electronica track, Neblix!

Sweet track right here.

This album's going straight on my torrenting list along with the updated OCR0001-2500 torrent.

No questions asked.

I knew that remix was going to kick ass the first WIP I heard. Neblix's production skills are gaining tremendous speed and it won't be long before he's up there with Zircon. :D

I got to have to hand it to Neblix - definitely one of his best works!

I'm also keeping this one fairly brief as well, which is rare, but this managed to intertwine both sources well while managing to keep with the more spacy aspects of the source. Neblix may have told me that he believed that "Blackout Tower" for the previous GRMRB was amongst his best works, but I believe that structurally he has managed to kick it up to eleven and involved a significantly more engaging progression throughout its duration. It's also amongst one of his sharpest productions too; everything has a lot of punch, sounds clear and dynamic, and it's hard to believe all this through comparing this and his starting tracks when he got involved as well.

What amazes me more is how much more consistent he's been getting at the writing aspect in such a short space of time. Let me be blunt here - "Heaven Awaits" interpreted the Prelude well and had a firmly produced vision, but to me the writing just felt too messy to really appreciate it all that much, and strangely he felt the same way whilst in conversation with him. Over time though, his writing methods have been getting more and more polished and engaging, and between this and his efforts with Plug Man in the GRMRB, I believe his works are becoming increasingly more accessible and all around fun to listen to, and I really hope he keeps up this trend.

Who knows, maybe in the next two years he may even give brother DarkeSword a run for his money ;)

Really solid stuff from Nabeel here, who's really come into his own with a diverse amount of material, especially in the various comps going on. I loved both themes on the Impulse soundtrack, and Nabeel really amped up the energy while still keeping a spacey/interstellar feel, which was awesome. I can easily see how this fits into Impulse itself as part of the game's soundtrack. Nice work, man. :-)
