Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)
Round 76: Vectorman - Ocean
"Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! There is a mystery lurking deep within a realm unbeknownst to mere mortals. The ocean is hiding something. Not giant squids nor fascinating and mysterious creatures. There are tales of a green man made of spheres crusading deep within the depths of the realm. His vectors are not clear nor how he manages to move, but for reasons beyond our understanding as if pure magic whenever he has been spotted there was musical accompaniment in the form of Ocean from this so called Vectorman."

MnP ARCHIVE - made by Trism
The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.
Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.
Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell.
If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met.
Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max).
Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.
Please don't make any comments about people's entries - including your own - until the Voting process is concluded. BONUS entries are exempt of this rule.
All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct
MISC/TIPS - When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier.
- In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)
What I thought was a simple ocean cruise for the first minute or so turned into a full-on adventure, where the last minute of the song I'm at the prow of a ship sailing with the breeze in my hair to an unknown and exciting land. Impressive what this source became - well done!!
Hmm yes, that does seem to be the root.
Listening to a few samples though... Musique Concrete had no beat. It was just reorganizing sounds by stretching them around to the interest of the composer.
Most of what I'm hearing I had to take my headphones off for. They REALLY hurt. >.<;
"Ligeti - Artikulation" was interesting to watch, moreso than listen (as it shows the patching process). But these seem to be in a different category.
They are undeniably the Parents for this though.
Kind of how an 1890's Ford is to today's cars. Same thing but very clearly different.
