Hey, friends! I hope you liked the blog post I made before about the console war. It was a fun little thing to write, and I hope to do more stuff like that in the future, though I’m not sure what it would actually be about. I definitely need to return to writing tutorials if I can. Anyway, on to some fun matters! Here is my Sonic CD remix of the Final Fever JP theme. It was featured on OC ReMix’s Temporal Duality album, and the project director, SuperiorX, allowed me to use the album title as the song’s title. I requested that because at the time, I felt very insecure about the mix, and I didn’t think I reached the lengths that I wanted to with the mix. In a sense it was rushed in that I could have potentially done a lot more in, say, a month, but I used extra time to make it what it currently is. It is by no means a rushed song. (more…)
Greetings! I thought I would try something new on the site, and write opinions on events or news stories that are relevant to me or my interests in addition to posting music. I’ll post the latest songs on the site soon, but for now, I’d like to talk a bit about the console war. The new next-generation consoles just dropped – Sony’s PlayStation 4, and Microsoft’s Xbox One. I’ll say this upfront — I chose the PlayStation 4. In the last generation, I chose the Xbox360 to be my first HD console. Lost Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed blew my mind, and made it totally worth it for me. And still, I got the Xbox360 Elite pretty late around September 2009. So why did I choose to get the PlayStation 4 this time around instead of the ol’ Xbone? (more…)
Happy Halloween! It’s not a holiday I celebrate, but I know some people do, so I am releasing this chilling BUT awesome black metal remix for your listening pleasure. It mixes Together Forever from the game Castlevania Bloodlines. I finished it right before Halloween and it was for Vampire Variations 2, and album run by my friend Chernabogue. I love making black metal, especially symphonic black metal, but it’s a ton of work. I think I loaded 8 violins, 2 cellos, 2 basses, and so many other bits of orchestra, and in the end you can’t even really hear the articulations or details. I really love the song though, and I hope you will too. Have a good night!
Greetings, friends! I’ve been a little slow with everything because I’ve been meeting crazy deadlines. As a result, I have a few songs to unload around Halloween. The first will, hopefully, come on Tuesday and is a remix from The Walking Dead. The others are two Castlevania Bloodlines remixes that will be featured on Vampire Variations 2. I usually try not to post music too close together, but I honestly haven’t seen any difference in views whether I do it one way or another, so I’ll just put stuff up when I feel like it and worry less about pacing it so a non-existent audience can digest it, ha ha ha….
So anyway, here is Gridlock. A really brutal djent song that I am very happy with. It may not have gotten that good of a response from OCR’s youtube audience, but big surprise there. They’re about as open-minded as the dudes at Dwelling of Duels who vote songs “terrible” just because they have vocals in them. It probably would have gotten a similar, if not worse, reaction there. But Stemage told me he loved it, and even Derek Oren complimented it, and I was surprised he would have even heard it. So that’s enough for me!
Anyway, anything I don’t happen to slap up on the site will either appear on the youtube channel, or in some other cases, will only appear on OC ReMix. I can be a little lazy synchronizing everything between all the sites.
I’m going to keep working off all of these projects I owe to people so I can finally focus on personal things! Yes! A solo remix album in 2014, perhaps! And the original album I wanted to make and Kickstart. Wish me luck, it should be a ton of fun.
Hey! I am happy to be presenting another new song already! I really like this one. It did not take as long as usual to write and record this one, including lyrics, mostly because I was very inspired and was really making a song that I wanted and needed to make at the time. I think I started and finished this the night of the 22nd into the 23rd. Working nights a lot means I’m always up overnight. I prefer to sleep during the day, but lately it’s been tough trying to sleep at any time.
Anyway, the lyrics are quite heavy on this one, and maybe somewhat negative. It’s just a really sad song, also the music sounds somewhat upbeat. There’s a live saxophone solo in there and even live mandolin which was pretty fun to record. I hope you like this one, enjoy!
