Welcome to OverClocked University!

As this is the first day of class, please take a seat and we'll go over the course syllabi:

Who We Are:

OverClocked University is a group of performing musicians made of up a handful of OverClocked ReMix veterans, who perform at OCR panels and various conventions. They arrange video game songs, both familiar and obscure, with a penchant for rock arrangements. As of now, the band consists of four core performing musicians:

OA/Andrew Luers - Guitars

Level 99/Stevo Bortz - Guitars

diotrans/Amy Hsieh - Violin

DragonAvenger/Deia Vengen - Bass

Thomas Colegrove - Drums

Songs are arranged by one or more of the performing musicians, and played live with backing tracks for drums and additional instruments. The group is supported by the following people:

Brandon Strader - Videos

Rexy/Bev Wooff - Videos

Palpable/Vinnie Prabhu - Performance Technical Expert

Vilecat/Valérie Legendre - Performance Technical Expert

What We're Doing:

Going around to lots of places to rock face with as many VGM fans as we can manage! We're always working on new arrangements, and we're currently in plans for our first full-length album. We've been playing OCR panels for over two years now and we are starting to book at conventions and concerts with a full setlist in-tow.

We just played our first full set at MAGFest and have the video uploaded for your enjoyment. Check it:

Just watched the MAGFest video. Awesome stuff, though Amy was mixed too low for the first few songs. Not that it would work out in any practical sense, but I'd love to play keys with you guys.

Fun fact: while at Apex, one of the guys who caught one of the bags at MAG came up to our table and introduced himself. The first thing we asked was "were you the dude who got his eye put out by Deia?"

He wasn't.

We've also played Wanderer on the Offensive (Double Live Edit), and WE MAY DO SO AGAIN! >_____>

Really! Is there videological evidence? I love that track.

Also, album release when?

We're finalizing what songs we want to put on it, as well as any new arrangements we want to make for it. Couple that with us sorting out a potential PAXEast Jamspace concert and the arrangements we're creating for that, with the current workload were HOPING for sometime this year.

We'll be sure to hit you in the eye with the corner of the disc case when it does come out.

It was our first live performance, at MAGFest 2011. I remember distinctly there being both video and audio for it, so youtube search for "OCR Live" to hopefully find it. We went under that moniker until we decided to make OverClocked University a "real thing".

OverClocked University: Hitting you in the EYE with Video Game Music since 2012.

Fun fact: while at Apex, one of the guys who caught one of the bags at MAG came up to our table and introduced himself. The first thing we asked was "were you the dude who got his eye put out by Deia?"

He wasn't.

She asked that on Facebook when I posted the pic of the Sound of Speed copy I got from the person in front of me who received one of those bags (he already had 2 copies, apparently).

He wasn't (that guy was to my left).

So we are going to be Rocking the one and only MAGFest 12 in less than a month, with our new, sweet-as-molasses EP in tow! You will be able to buy it! :o

1476546_621724794551644_242838160_n.png

Featuring 6 of our most popular songs, mixed and mastered by the one and only DJ Zircon, this is required listening for all students at the university. If you are doing a training montage, this is the perfect music for it, and if you are not doing a training montage, this will inspire you to BE THE BEST!

Can you guess what songs are on there?

Updated OP with info. Also I listened to the whole EP twice on the way to work today and it sounded GREAT.
