Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade


Recruiting has begun... again. Please read guidelines for auditioning before PMing me please.

Welcome to the thread for the OC Remix collaborative site album Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade. The video game Skies of Arcadia has an excellent soundtrack, and I believe it's time to help it shine!

Project Theme

A Sailor's Serenade is an approach at appreciation with live instruments. So the project theme involves the use of at least one (1) acoustic or electronic live instrument in each remix.

- Electric guitars, basses, drums, keyboards, and electric strings like electric violins are acceptable.

- Sequenced virtual violins or other instruments that sound real are not.

- If you are a sequencer and/or can't/don't know how to play a live instrument, collaborating with an artist who can is acceptable.

- Vocals are also an acceptable live instrument.

Audition Guidelines

Please e-mail auditions to djeconcerto at gmail dot com (fixed e-mail for spam prevention) or PM me through these forum's PM system.

Auditions are the best way for the project coordinators to get an idea of quality.

- Auditioning materials need to be relevant to the part of the project you want to be part of. I.E. Remixers need to send music, instrument players need to send samples of their instrument playing, artist need to send artwork, etc.

- Please send at least two samples as your auditioning material.

- Artists who are invited to the project by the project coordinators are exempt from auditions. (We obviously know about their artist quality in that we felt compelled to invite them.)

- Auditions are preferred to be e-mailed as opposed to PMed because the e-mail is checked several times a day.

- Auditions DO NOT require a live instrument, however, if you are a musician that uses one, please audition with its involvement.

- If you e-mail your audition, you can send the auditioning material as an attachment.

Project Goals

I would like to see a remix album of at least 14 tracks, but more would be better. If remixers would like to partake in more than one track, their second selection must wait for first selections to be complete. (Wait for everyone to have firsts before getting seconds.)

New remixers can grow, as this project could help them learn many audio production techniques. New remixers should not be afraid to ask for help, and knowledgeable remixers should be able to help them.

Many of you might be concerned about the previous attempt of this project, where I failed to communicate and the project ended up collecting dust. School and work have a way of doing that. But I am determined to see this to the end, and as I do not see the last attempt as a failure, but rather as an eye opener of what I was doing wrong.

Timeline

I'd be lying if I said the album could get done in a year. But that is the current goal. So let me propose the timeline:

7/1/14 - Recruitment begins. Recruitment will end when 
the goal of 10 - 14 remixers is reached.

9/1/12 - First Works in Progress (WIP) is due. WIPs 
include any remix and artwork. Nothing special is 
expected, but something should be submitted. Submission 
is e-mailing the WIP to a project coordinator.

11/1/12 - Second WIP is due. This is a more important 
update. Remixes should have the bones of the song 
complete. Artwork decisions should be complete and 
first drafts submitted.

2/1/12 - Third WIP is due. Remixes should be in the 
final stages of design, as well as the artwork. 
That way, mastering/digitizing of the project 
can begin.

6/1/12 - Final remixes and artwork due. That way 
we can begin judging and final touches before publishing.

7/1/13 - Project release.

As I've said, this is a goal for the project, but deadlines get pushed back due to personal life and/or involvement with other projects. These are to be expected. All I ask is that you communicate your needs to the project coordinators so that they can work with you. Dropping off the face of the planet will only get you tossed from the project.

Track Listing

Skies of Arcadia has a pretty extensive track list, and in no way am I expecting every song to be covered. But the entirety of the track list is available for remixing for the project.

Using this track list until final track decisions are made, here is the key for colors:

Track Available
[B][U]Track Taken[/U][/B]
[B][U][COLOR="Green"]Works in Progress are on time[/COLOR][/U][/B]
[B][U][COLOR="DarkOrange"]Works in Progress are overdue[/COLOR][/U][/B]
[B][U][COLOR="Blue"]Works are nearing completion[/COLOR][/U][/B]
[B][U][COLOR="DeepSkyBlue"]Works completed, ready for judging[/COLOR][/U][/B]
[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][B][U]Works finished[/U][/B][/COLOR]
[B][U][COLOR="Red"]Works with progress but artist out of communication.[/COLOR][/U][/B]

EDIT: Please refrain from reminding me of the past failures of projects, past attempts at this one, or the amount of projects already underway. I already know and understand. Instead, suggest ways to help this one succeed. Thank you.

EDIT 2: Time to dust this off and try again. Got some time. Recruiting process will begin next month, but you can show interest. If you were previously on the remixer and/or instrument list, let me know if you're still interested and I'll put you back on. Sorry about this dropping off like it did. I was finishing school and ended up moving (twice) and spaced the whole thing. So lets give this another shot, shall we?

Just from what I've looked at on the forums here, it seems that this soundtrack is pretty popular. While I'm not familiar with it, I recommend you message people and see if you can perk their interest in this. If you want it to work out well, be proactive with it and go out recruiting actively.

If you bug people you might get a response where you wouldn't get any otherwise. I don't have much else to offer you other than a few words of wisdom, so I wish you luck on the re-re-revival of this project. ;-)

Likewise, I've never heard of this soundtrack before, but I'm always looking to share my voice to those who need it. I'll shoot you an email with some of my recent material.

Skies of Arcadia was an awesome RPG! I loved it!

And i'm definitely interested in this project, though i don't know if you need a rapper on it?
I would need to collab with someone though as i can't compose music nor can i edit and master vocals, i just record and let someone with more experience tidy it all up ...so if that isn't a problem i would like to express interest in contributing something to this album.

Though, if rap would be too much a stretch for a project like this then i totally understand and will be supporting this one from the sidelines. Either way, good luck with this :)

Hey, vocals are vocals. Go ahead and send an e-mail with your stuff.

So the focus of these mixes has to be mainly on a live instrument? I can't play anything, unfortunately, so I might be out on luck unless there's a really dedicated collaborator somewhere.

Well, don't look at it as "I can't play an instrument, so I can't join". That's not it at all. The instrumentalists will come. Think of it more as "Now's an opportunity to hear what a real instrument sounds like in my remixes". Or even "Yay! I get to remix a Skies of Arcadia song!"

Yay, so now I'm going to consider an arrangement and seek out a live instrumentalist. I'm thinking acoustic guitar, maybe piano. Violin would be nice, but I have no idea how to arrange them.

Also need to figure out how to get more people on the boat for this project.. it's an iconic game, an iconic album to me, a very pleasant and unique OST to anyone. I'll be looking for supporters and referring them here.

EDIT: And I'm considering "Battle 2" as a track. Not positive yet, but I really love that track.

Don't forget that we are also building an instrument panel of people who play live instruments and are part of the project that remixers can ask.

Considering I can play several live instrument, I think I'll put some down. I'm not exactly what you would call a pro at any of them, but I could pull something together in a pinch.

Cool. Is it possible to post links to the instrumentalists' audition material? I'd like to get a feel for what everyone's bringing to the table.

You know, I like the idea of this project and all... but the name is too similar to the one I have planned for my eventual Boktai series album, Solar Serenade. :P

But yeah, best of luck on this and all.

If that's what they want, although Fishy was invited. His guitar work is on this site if you want to hear his.

Well, the name is subject to change, as I've been coming up with new theme ideas. Thanks for the luck.
