  • Biography
    I'm a musician living in the Houston area. Largely classically trained but I have very eclectic tastes, and love the opportunity to work in any style. I have a bachelor's degree in music theory and composition. And a bass guitar. And a cat. And a Martin Luther bobble head.

    Have been singing with the Houston Symphony since 2009, which has given me the opportunity to sing in the choirs for Video Games Live, Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds, and Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses.

    Member of the Fabul Men's Choir.

  2. Sorry! I've been moving and have been off the site for a while — are you still looking for help with Tears of the Moon, and if so, what kind? Hope all is well.

  3. Are you, by chance, interested in helping with Tears of the Moon?

  4. Hello Moogle person :)

  5. Hey there Manga Person.

  6. I absolutely love Hocus Pocus. Had an 8-level demo of it that I kept and played for years, until I found a CD of the game in the bargain bin at Babbage's. Great platformer.
  7. I had a similar thought. I don't think it's a bargain, but it does seem like it'd be a reasonable rate to me, assuming the sponsor highly values the skills of the OCReMix community (which they probably do, since they are donating to this project). A lot would depend on how complex they'd want the music to be. That being said, I'd guess that a lot of indie developers don't have $5k to spend on their game's music, and that a lot of the bigger companies would rather hire an individual composer or composers, instead of hiring a "collective" like OCReMix. All purely speculative on my part, though. Regardless of whether or not it's a "good buy", I've no doubt that those two folks are gonna be supremely happy with the music for their game (or other project). Edited to add: Hopefully this does not spark a massive controversy over whether or not it's ethical for a not-for-profit org like OCReMix to "sell" their talents in this manner.
  8. Yeah, I like the opening to that a lot better. Maybe something more specific than "foul things" — creatures, monsters, darkness, etc. I tend to think "things" is a good word to avoid.
  9. Yeah, I check it every day to see if anybody is going to give at the $10k level although I will be shocked (in a good way) if they do.
  10. Yeah I used to love it and in fact tried to recently emulate Windows 95 on my Mac just so I could play it. Was struggling with all kinds of sound driver issues when I realized that they have the whole game on YouTube since it was really nothing but hyperlinked video clips.
  11. I have to say that this is a really interesting point, that there hasn't been a lot of PC ReMixing. I keep meaning to cut my teeth on my first mix on some sort of console RPG, but this thread makes me remember a lot of great games from way back when. I'd like to state my intention to do a mix of "SuvwI' van bom" from Star Trek: Klingon, a Win95 game. Raucous vocal piece, so I think I could actually pull it off with my current production skillset.

    Glad I could help, post again with some o' them changes when you're ready. Happy mixing!
  13. One fun trick for using alternate languages is making up fake Latin. Just did the orchestral Zelda concert... almost 100% made-up words for the choral parts. "Fithos lusec wecos vinosec" from FF8 also not a real thing. Experimenting with syllable textures ftw. At this point, though, you might as well stick with English as you've already crafted the words and want to use it for your dual purpose. I think the opening is fine both melodically and dynamically. I meant "strong" not as a synonym for "powerful" but more an antonym for "weak" — semantics, I know. You can effectively start your piece out quietly and with a single melody, I just feel like compared to the quality of some of your other lyrics here, "Hyrule is under siege" is not your best work and starts the piece off in a less-than-ideal place. I'm not a fan of unison choral bits, but there's objectively nothing wrong with them — although you really need precision in your choral blend to pull it off. Re: siege — I still feel like it's the wrong word, I feel like by the time of this song Ganon has already won. But it is hard to argue with all the thought you put into it in your last post. Even if it was inarguably the wrong word, it probably wouldn't bother 99% of your listeners, so go for it... your piece after all
  14. Well, I didn't say "but the asking price was $50" but you're right, we're just talking in circles here. I may or may not contribute to a non-OCR album that uses similar fundraising tactics, but I will defend with my keyboard's very life that album's right to do so.
  15. Foxx: I would disagree that the asking price of the album is $50. When I first saw the announcement, I thought they were so clear about the album being free on the site that it would hurt their donations. I can definitely see your reasoning since you don't get the "official" hard copy without donating the $50, but I think it really is open to some interpretation — I am probably going to download the files anyway and put my discs on a shelf until I die, so truthfully the hard copy album doesn't hold a great deal of value for me.
