Today marks the 130th (!) birthday of Nintendo, and we've got more from the JUST RELEASED album Songs of the Sirens: Link's Awakening ReMixed - specifically, PROTO·DOME (Blake Troise) hits us with a plucky, funky, jazzy chip-prog take on "Mabe Village":
"So, the Mabe Village theme is great -- one of my favourites -- but it's really short. There was a lot of extrapolating to do, hence the 7/4 prog-jazz nonsense. Here's a cool tip I learned while writing this: if you play the Lydian scale of the home key over a 9sus4 on the fifth (in this case, F# Lydian over C#13sus4, heard at 3:46), it sounds damn cool!"
It's got all the playfulness & chip/retro textures you'd expect & hope for in something from Blake, with an extra helping of theory & experimentation to stretch out the source and provide for 4+ minutes of sublime fusion. Album co-director WillRock writes:
"Blake is one of those people who constantly delivers, and as expected, he brought his signature jazzy chiptune stylings to the iconic "Mabe Village" track. However, this one goes a step further than the typical PROTO·DOME offering, throwing in progressive arrangement ideas, including an awesome 7/4 section, and some really creative change-ups, and even has an extended slowed down outro right when you think the track has finished.
This has everything that makes a PROTO·DOME track great, but pushes things up by a level by taking things in unique and cool directions. Great stuff."
Plenty of curveballs & creative transitions/variation make this a hot one for arrangement and theory buffs, but it's still accessible, enjoyable, funky, & chock full o' character. Enjoy it responsibly, and enjoy the whole album too!
