Lunar Battle Theme Remix
Garrett "GDawgTUK" Lindquist Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete | Battle Theme
Author's Comments
I've always loved the battle theme from Lunar: The Silver Star story the instant I heard it in the game. I wanted to keep the core sound intact (I used older sounding beat instruments for this reason), but at the same time make it more intense. Naturally I leaned towards a techno-inspired remix to achieve this. I started with your average techno fade in, and built off it. I wanted to highlight on the parts of the song I really liked. I love the strings around 00:26 to 00:39 so I made sure to give them a proper introduction. After the break in the middle, I combined a few of the more dominating leads and synths and found ways for them to work together and to top it off I used some of the lower strings that were meant to harmonize as a platform to create a nice lead that plays first at 02:39. I used that same sound to make a higher version at 03:30 as well. All in all I was really happy with how it came out. I hope others like it as well!

Yup, it's still me. To my haters, my apologies, for I shall remain with Sound Test for a bit longer.

So recently I've been officially added to a hospital's roster of physicians-on-duty, though I've been wokring there for about a couple of months already. It turns out getting an official paycheck means I'll be getting less than what I was receiving when I was in "reliever" status. It was a WTF moment, really.

Speaking of the relatively recently employed, our sound sample today comes from Garrett "GDawgTUK" Lindquist. I have to say, his composition style really complements mine. Where I explore forms and structures from centuries past, he dabbles in the most modern of styles and sounds. I particularly like the echo-like effect achieved in the fragment from 0:13 to 0:26 and a similar passage from 0:50 to 1:03. I have to admit, though, that I found the segment just past the two-minute mark a bit... excessive and distracting. Nevertheless, it's a fantastically constructed piece. Garrett's attention to details is almost palpable in this remix. Download it now, folks, and be blown away.

The next update shall mark my third year as curator, so expect something special. Until then! Have a great weekend!
