OC ReMix Announces Official 501c3 Non-Profit Status as Project of Game Music Initiative, Inc
November 24th, 2017
FAIRFAX, VA... OverClocked ReMix today announced its status as a fully-sponsored project of Game Music Initiative, Inc (GMI), a newly-formed 501c3 non-profit charitable organization devoted to the promotion of video game music as an art form.
Established on November 26th, 2016, the mission of GMI is as follows:
EDUCATE the world about game music as an art form,
PROMOTE game music and game composers,
RESEARCH game music and contribute to the body of free and open knowledge,
PRESERVE the history of game music and archive relevant artifacts,
PROVIDE resources for existing and aspiring game composers,
PROTECT the right to explore game music through transformative works and assistive technologies, and
SUPPORT any projects that advance these goals.
OverClocked ReMix founder David W. Lloyd expressed his enthusiasm about this development and the need for such a transition:
"For seventeen years, OverClocked ReMix has been a community effort, but has been owned by a single individual, myself, and not officially registered as a 501c3 charitable organization. Game Music Initiative was created to support this project, and others like it in the future, and provides permanent assurance of non-profit status while also enhancing financial transparency & operational continuity," Mr. Lloyd noted. "This transition paves the way for exciting developments ahead, makes all donations from US citizens tax deductible, and builds on the foundation of trust and long-term commitment that OC ReMix has developed since 1999."
More information about GMI, including its board of directors, can be found at https://gamemusic.org.
An FAQ is available and will be updated to address any questions surrounding this change of status.

Yea I was curious about the idea behind this one too. You pulled it off though.
i didn't mind the way the track started at all but I agree with the above poster about the mix being in the same place.
I like it. Very creative.
