2009-01-10 Edit: Remixed/Remastered. Now with more delicious distortion.
This was the song that came in third place in our annual Halloween competition.  Having only researched the Anime, I can tell you that this is an Anime about like mushroom people.  Without making too much of a fool out of myself, I figured I'd just look up wikipedia on what they had to say about this anime:

wikipedia wrote:

The story features ubiquitous creatures called Mushi that often display supernatural powers. Mushi are described as beings in touch with the essence of life, far more basic and pure than the grotesque creatures we are accustomed to. Due to their ephemeral nature most humans are incapable of perceiving Mushi and are oblivious to their existence, but there are a few who possess the ability to see and interact with Mushi. The Mushi depicted in the anime look very similar to floaters.

One such person is Ginko (Ginko?), the main character of the series. He employs himself as a Mushi master (mushi-shi?), travelling from place to place to research Mushi and aid people suffering from problems caused by them. The series is an episodic anthology in which the only common elements among episodes are Ginko and the various types of Mushi. There is no over-arching plotline.

I really found an appreciation to this song after listening to it a few times.  The textures in the synths and the fullness of the pads he uses certainly does give that creepy aura to it (for Halloween) and the song is pretty well put together.  Listening to the original piece, I can see why he took the approach that he did in terms of genre, and I think he did a very good job producing it.

OverCoat has been really a strong part of Anime Remix for a long time now, and his musical and administrative truly deserves much Kudos ^_^'  Arigato Gozaimasu!

  •     They are neither plants nor animals. They differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life and are generally known as "Mushi". Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them. Ginko is a "Mushi-shi" who travels around to investigate and find out more about the "Mushi". In the process, he also lends a helping hand to people who face problems with supernatural occurances which may be related to the "Mushi".
