"Still Alive"Mirror's Edge (EA Games , 2008, PS3), music by Arnthor Birgisson, Rami Yacoub, Solar Fields
Posted 2018-01-22, evaluated by the judges panel
From newcomer Synesthesics (Sandro Kreher) comes a chill, ambient/EDM ReMix of Mirror's Edge, with enveloping pads, shimmering arpeggios, and glitchy/crushed drums that make good use of panning:
"Here is a game remix from my previous project, Mellow Sonic. Oh yay, my third remix of this theme... loved so much the Solar Fields version. :) Enjoy my new remix. :) BTW, yay, I wait for Mirror's Edge 2. \O/"
I suppose technically the titling of Mirror's Edge Catalyst could allow for ME2; I didn't hear as many folks talking about Catalyst as the original, following their respective releases. When it came out, the original Mirror's Edge was fresh, new, and had an attention-getting single that artists were invited to remix, which was a pretty cool bonus. This arrangement is transporting and makes especially good use of panning, not just on the aforementioned drums, but on the pads & accompanying synths as well. While there's not a ton of structural development and certain portions repeat themselves, the soundscape itself is rich, evolving, & inviting; Sir_NutS arranged our previous featured ReMix of the same theme, and sums the decision up well:
"This song lends itself easily to mellow stuff, and the artist takes advantage of the fact with this remix. Lush pads are the order of the day, with the constant arpeggio to keep the energy going. Even though there are many static elements here, the subtle changes in pads and usage of filtered synths that are just noticeable enough, and that fade in and out of the spotlight, do keep the energy from getting too constant."
Judges agreed that there could have been a little trimming to reduce repetition, a little more melodic variation/extapolation, or both, but also concurred that what's here is shiny, crisp, & achieves the things the genre tends to excel at achieving. Great stuff from Sandro, who debuts with an atmospheric take on a modern source that lends itself to the adaptation!
