This is my cover of "Bonds of Sea and Fire" from Xenogears, composed by Yasunori Mitsuda.
This is also my entry to the #SoundoleChillOut2018 contest!

I originally wanted to do something more "chill" but during the arrangement i felt the need to fill a bit the drums and to add a bit of EDM arpeggios or distorted lead guitar.
So it's maybe not the most relaxing thing, but i tried to use a bunch of reverb to keep that "chill" vibe.

So we are curently working on a XenoGears album with the Pixel Mixers, i'm working on 2 other Xeno songs for the album, but i wanted to use Soundole's contest to work on a 3rd one, cause, you know, i love that OST so much (it's my favourite Mitsuda's work).

Been re listening to some Enigma (New Wave/Chill band) and they use lots of percussions and sometimes distortion guitar but the whole mix and atmosphere of the song makes it chill, that's what i tried to achieve here!
