Part of what makes the music of Celeste compelling is the high energy that so many of the tracks have. Lena is particularly skilled in creating rhythmically-saturated, high octane grooves. In this particular arrangement, the way I chose to capture that was through constant 16ths in the right hand, almost like a Chopin etude or Hanon exercise might have. While the bulk of this track is certain to keep you “awake,” the ending brings the themes to a melancholy conclusion.
The quality of this album came to a huge surprise to me upon playing the game for the first time. Each new track clearly draws from its original counterpart, while adding its own flair and shooting up the intensity by tenfold. How it does this, I'm not even sure. Each track screams challenge and perfectly fits and boosts the shrill determination felt by the player (or at least me) upon entering each level. default_nano
How does she do it yet AGAIN?? Each track feels so natural and really flows with the gameplay so well that you almost forget that it's there at all (other than the amazing music playing in your ears). I couldn't manage to get tired of a single track here, despite getting stuck on Farewell for over an hour.
And nothing. Nothing. beats the incredible rush of determination you feel at the beginning of 'Beyond The Heart' (although the other tracks are all brilliant in their own right). default_nano
