So here's my remix of "Phendrana Drifts". I tried to keep the spirit of the original intact while staying true to my original style.
Check out my new album "A Method of Symmetry" on Bandcamp/iTunes/Spotify. Support a hungry Saudi musician! Thank you.
This is the coolest remix of Phendrana Drifts ever ! KEEP THIS UP!
by farthest of metroid game's i've played over the years it has certainly looked amazing with beautiful artwork and also it's music is without a doubt one of the best music in metroid histroy, thanks for the making of Phendrana Drifts melody indeed your very good at capturing the part of the beats!! it must've been difficult at times, I hope to see more of your music and Phendrana Drifts Music theme from Metroid Prime nicely done.
metroid is pretty cool game
Phendrana Drifts is one of my fave songs from Metroid, so I'm going to be a little harsher on you than normal. sorry :p
First of all, in the intro piano melody, you changed the original melody a tad. I don't like the change as much as I liked the original. It's just a small difference though.
Your solos though... See, Phendrana was originally this soft wintery mysterious song, and I don't think that your solos really adhere to that, they are a lot more energetic. The bit at 2:49 I like, I feel like it's true to the song. But from 3:14-4:20 on I feel like the original song is lost again. It sounds more like an epic battle... If you listen back to the original song again (1:50 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbbUv1 hz6mE for reference) it has this really nice harp short solo that really stays true to the wintery feel of the whole thing.
So - yes, I'm really nitpicking here - I feel like the song needs a cohesive direction to it, it's trying to do many different things at once.
Anyway, all of that nit picking aside, this is a very good piece. Keep it up!
Thanks for your review!
Yeah I feel you're really nitpicking the structure of the song when my intention wasn't to recreate the atmosphere of the original, but rather take the arrangement and adapt it to my style of work, which is the 'epic battle' you referred to. Nothing you said was wrong and I appreciate your input but why do you feel that I should stick to the original's atmosphere? That's what made the original so damn perfect and it's not something I'd want to attempt to improve upon or compete with. Instead, I chose to take it in a different direction and put my musical mark on it. It's more of a fresh take on the piece rather than being a retread, wouldn't you agree? This structure doesn't play out like a game score but rather a song.
Thanks again for listening and hope you check out my albums!
Your music is beautiful! I will certainly be looking at buying your album.
Thank you! I truly, truly appreciate your support.
