This one was made around two years ago if I remember correctly, but I deemed it unworthy of posting. Then I figured someone might like it anyway, so here it is.

REVIEW BY K8-bit (02/08/2011)

Understated, laid back, sweet, lush.

Four words to start with describing this piece that I'm so glad Mordi decided to release after tantalising in the forum:-)

Now I have a special soft spot for this original piece from Martin Galway, but that doesent mean I automatically love every arrangement, there arent many out there that I can confess to really liking.

This, by approaching the piece from a different angle - smoother, slower, less frenetic than the original - it appeals for different reasons.

Mordi's decision to stick with the wibbles/noteplex's in the tune is a good one, it anchors the piece to the original in a warm nostalgic way I appreciate. The melody is intact, with an added underlying harmony that reminds me a bit of the dual-melodies in the Wizball highscore. Added arpeggios give it an ethereal lift that think adds a lot too.

A relaxing nostalgic listening pleasure, thank you Mordi:-)
