Disc3 track8th-track12th commentary
Good evening, this is Yagi, the event planner.
At last! The soundtrack has been released!
I have been listening to the soundtrack on everyday basis, honestly.
This soundtrack will certainly be the masterpiece in the game music world...
If some of you have not yet bought the soundtrack, I would recommend this awesome soundtrack!
Moving on, we will begin with our commentary for today, then.
Oh, almost forgot to mention about my progress of game playing since the last week!
Since the last week attempt of that the last boss battle, I still have not yet achieved to beat the last boss… how awful is this for the game developer`s point of view…
I am planning to complete “The Last Remnant” by the end of this year.
Wait a minute! We only have 2 weeks left for the new-year in 2009!? No way!
Mmm we might have to move on to our commentary session for today!
Let us begin!
【Mr. Yagi comments;】
I wanted to have a slightly different style of music for this particular event.
I tried to bring out the moment of indescribably dangerous situation by Mr. Seiko’s underscore for this event. Mr. Sekito, without any doubt, has composed the perfect music for this event. I am very impressed with this underscore from its coolness of the music.
【Mr. Sekito comments;】
The event goes quickly with panicky situation. The scene with explosions sound effect, for example, is taking the most of space in the mix. To avoid the interfering between the sound effect and music, I deliberately reduced the low frequency on the music for the mix.
■9.Out of Control
【Mr. Sekito comments; 】
The track used to be called “The battle for THE REMNANT” among our development team.
The player can listen to the track when the player is in the battle mode with the Remnant, for example with Cyclopse.
The track has many selections of instruments of synthesizer part, guitar part, and symphonic orchestral part. The 2nd half of the track introduces the chaotic feeling in the track, which is produced by the guitar part, played on odd time signature, and strings part.
■10.Beat the Odds
【Mr. Sekito comments; 】
This track is for when the player is in crisis during the battle.
The timpani part is played during the intro. I chose a symphonic approach to the music for the track. The player might not be able to recognize about the fact that the track has an intensity movement on the 2nd half of the track.
This track is meant to yell out the player during the battle which is being in crisis.
