My only complaint is that the loop is a little rough. But otherwise, absolutely divine.
it does kind of fall into it, doesn't it? then again, i wouldn't know how I could make that XD
i'm glad you enjoyed it!
The video is brilliant, but the song really needs the video to work. 4/5, 8/10.
I gave this a five because its Kingdom Hearts. But then I listened to it. It stays faithful to the original while being new and... well... original. I found the loop a little rough, but that only slightly impedes it. Me likey!
I mean, it is pretty good, but listening to it actually hurt. seriously, tone it down a bit.
A samurai is sitting beneath the cherry blossoms in the early evening. leaves are drifting down from the trees. He reaches up to grab a few, seems to examine them, and lets the wind take them away. The samurai then stands up, and begins to walk.
The camera cuts to a vast field at sunrise. Rice is growing here, but it obviously has not been tended for a long time; the stalks are enormous, seeming almost as tall as the samurai. In the distance, you can see the wreckage of a few humble huts, blasted and destroyed by a nameless foe.
Next, the samurai is walking through a desert. It is midday, and the sun glares down on him like the eye of some forgotten god. You can barely see ancient statues and ruins rising out of the sand, scarred and pitted by the ravages of time.
Finally, the samurai is walking along a broken highway. What appears to be cars are scattered along the edges, though they are twisted almost beyond recognition. The samurai reaches a cliff, stops, and looks up. As the camera zooms out, you can see the remains of an unspeakably vast city, the fires of war slowly erasing it from the earth.
That's the image(s) that popped into my head when I heard this. Good going!
Why haven't you been discovered by a major video game company yet?
The kind of person this piece brings to my mind is what they call a "Badass Longcoat"; look it up if you don't know what it means. In addition, the music implies he has something to do with advanced technology (the techno parts of course), he has a tragic and/or romantic past (the piano sections), and he has some sort of relationship with the military (the siren part at 1:25 or so). He would be the main character's mentor/idol, and he would probably end up doing a Heroic sacrifice.
Oops, overanalyzed again : P
Gotta stop doing that.
Not your best work by a long shot, but still really good.
I can see this as the fight music in a classic turn-based rpg. 2 thumbs up!
I for one don't know the song, but I still find the remix wonderful. 5/5, 10/10!
As others have said, some of the best techno to emerge in a while. A little soft for my tastes, but, meh. Keep going!
