LEAF XCEED Music Division – Forest Labyrinth
Well! Why do we have another Lufia III/TLR remix here?! Apparently I can’t do Lufia III remixes if they’re not a pair. *points at Guard Daos and Diary Of Memories being right next to each other on the tracklist*
To be honest, this track came to be because…I was so annoyed at myself for not being able to come up with anything new, original and interesting even after having this new CPU XD;; The feeling of having so much power but not being able to utilize it really sucks…so I tried thinking why I’m feeling like this. I had so many ideas when my CPU was Lux, but now that I have N9 I couldn’t think of those ideas anymore, and anything I came up with was so generic. I thought of that quote in Nodame Cantabile that one of the characters said, about looking back and making sure you didn’t leave anything behind. I looked at my tracklist and noticed the influx of classical-style pieces…maybe…my mindset was still stuck in that genre/style of composing? I looked further back and saw the huge amount of video game remixes I had. They all (most of them anyways) had the one thing I wanted, and that was a sound that screamed video game metal/rock.
I wanted that sound with me again, stuck in my head as my inspiration for creating my own music. Putting the logic together, I’ll be sure to be able to create unique original compositions once more after I’m inspired enough by my biggest inspiration in the world of music.
So! That only means that this “Forest Labyrinth” track is one that goes back to the video game metal remixing style I’ve always had, while using a template that’s an insanely cleaner (and volume regulated) version of songs like The Black Wind Howls and Imminent Chaos. Quite short, but hey, so was Guard Daos. 😄
