Lawn Party! Plants vs. Zombies album project! *PROJECT IS UP FOR ADOPTION*

67 posts in this topic

edit 10/14/16:  Time to get real with this.  The project has been dead in the water for some time now, and timaeus and I have discussed it and neither of us has the time nor the interest to see it through.  If anyone cares to take this project over and be its new director, please let us know.  If no one steps forward in the next month, the project will be cancelled and all approved tracks can be scheduled to post on OCR in the normal cycle.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Hey guys! Timaeus and I started a Plants vs. Zombies project a few months back, and djp came up with the awesome title "Lawn Party: Plants vs. Zombies ReMixed." The idea was born after timaeus and I finished not one but TWO PvZ remixes. The project already has official status and a subforum.

The idea is this: There are 13 source tunes (nice, lucky number!). We're looking for one ReMix for each single source. In addition to the 13 single-source mixes, I'm open to as many multi-source mixes as people want to do, those will be on the bonus disc. Timaeus and I have completed one single-source mix (Ultimate Battle theme) and also one bonus-style multi-source mix (that we simply titled "The Zombies Are Coming.")

PvZ OST by Laura Shigihara

completed single-source tracks:

Ultimate Battle - "There's a Zomboss on my Roof" (Chimpazilla & timaeus222)
Cerebrawl - "Cerebral" (Avaris)
Grasswalk - "The Ice Pea's Lullaby" (Chernabogue)

completed bonus tracks:

"The Zombies Are Coming" (bonus multi-source mix of Watery Graves, Loonboon, Rigor Mormist) (Chimpazilla & timaeus222)

claimed sources:

Crazy Dave - intro theme (Brandon Strader)
Choose Your Seeds - (Theory of N)
Moongrains (djp)
Rigor Mormist (Redg & Chimpazilla) 
Brainiac Maniac (Damashii!!) 
Zombies on your Lawn (Brandon Strader) 
Watery Graves (WillRock)
Graze the Roof (Rexy)
Zen Garden (The_Wizard_Lakmir)
Loonboon (Laura Shigihara) - she's off the hook until we get closer to completion

*need concept wip
*need substantial update
*need update (near completion)

All single sources are now claimed. But anyone wanting to do a multi-source mix, go for it! The more sources you can weave together, the better. Post or send me your concept wip, and if it is of acceptable quality, you will be invited into the private subforum.

The goal is to have all music, art, and trailer complete by July 31st, 2015, with a projected release date of Halloween 2015. Once all the tracks are claimed and underway, I will begin to set some milestone dates for the tracks.

Any questions can be addressed to me, Brandon Strader, or timaeus222. We have Laura Shigihara onboard to remix one of her own tunes! It's going to be a killer album!

Oh hey, didn't saw the new release date for the PvZ album, and as I always plan VV albums to get out on Halloween day, that may be problematic. Guess we'll find out a solution that fits everyone. :)

Honestly I'd prefer to get PvZ out BEFORE next Halloween. No reason we can't get a sooner release date. We will figure out something that works.

That sounds good to me. It's not really a spooky game anyway. It's more whimsical. Though to be fair Castlevania is not spooky either, it's just Victorian.

I've slacked off on rallying everyone for this album. That is going to change. I'll be checking in with each of you to find out where you're at with your tracks!

SO GET WORKING ON THEM.

Updates.... GIVE ME UPDATES!!!

Everyone owes me something.

Chernabogue, how goes it with getting your live violin?

Damashi!!, WillRock, Wizard... any progress on your wips?

Brandon, DjjD, Rexy, djp... how about at least a concept wip?

Redg, let's get going again on our mix.

This is too good an album concept to let it slip through the cracks.

I might be able to help out with violin. Though at the moment I don't have the access I need to recording gear for it, and won't for the next month or so. Do let me know if needed.

Ok guys, time to get serious here. We need to set some deadlines to get things moving. Please check the OP for the status of your track.

I've set April 5, 2015 as the next major wip date.

Seriously, we need to get this little album going. The music needs to get completed, and Brandon will get working on the art and trailer. I've asked Brandon also to help be "Mr. Strongarm" to keep things moving along. From here on out, if wip dates are not met and we have not heard from you at all, your claim will be reopened to other artists.

Anyone doing a multi-source mix, wips would be great, but there won't be update dates for you. If you come up with a great song and it is finished by the time the album is done, it's in! But wips along the way would be very much appreciated.

Please contact me, timaeus or Brandon with any issues or questions.

Get those wips rolling, guys/gals!

I'm just here to make cuts so Chimpazilla doesn't have to be the bad guy. You know I'll do it!

The project will be saved by remixers, not me.

Yes please, send in your WIPs as soon as you get something, let's say, around a minute or so done (personally I consider a minute 'rough', 2 minutes 'well into it', 3 minutes 'substantial', more or less). Or even if you have less than a minute done... at least let us know you've finished SOMETHING! Something leaving you inspired enough to get it done!

Good luck! :D

Almost a week until y'all get cut for not turning in WIPs. 8) Unless you got super good excuses!
