25 Years of Fire Emblem

A Fire Emblem Tribute Album
Name tentative (25 years to 2015)
Also yes this is kinda copy/pasted from my first project idea but who cares.

Games:The Fire Emblem series. At least have representation from every separate sub-series (Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, Blazing Sword and Sealed Sword, etc.). More than one game per sub-series is fine; I'd like to at least get 1 song per sub-series before we start doubling up, but I can make exceptions, especially for the less well-known games.

Concept:To this day, there is only 1 posted Fire Emblem Remix on OCR (yes I checked); I intend to change that. The music from these games is amazing, and if Smash Bros. has taught us anything, they need more attention than they're getting.
I attempted to start a FE remix project 2 whole years ago and limited it to just Blazing Sword, but the lack of available remixers forced it to die off. The extended scope allows for more games to be represented and at the same time attempt to make more people interested, but the concept is to still keep the project decently small, 1-2 tracks per sub-series. We are also OCR official now!

Style of music: Anything goes. Feel free to interpret the music any way you know how/want to; if someone were to make a really cool techno/breakbeat version of "Together We Ride," for example that's completely alright.

I'd be interested in the first Fire Emblem, particularly the DS remake.

Instead of just doing like 4 songs from the gba game/s, we could possibly do a full album with representation from all the games. IDk, might be difficult.

If that were the case, I can already send you a WIP for a remix I have of "Conquest" from Awakening that I was planning to finish and submit anyway.

If that's what people want, I'm completely down for it. I'd like to get some more confirmation that people want to do this, then I can draw up the album guidelines/possible songs in the next few days/week.

Currently playing Awakening for the first time.

DANG this game is good.

And I might find something worth remixing too :)

There's already some neat stuff in here, but nothing that's super catchy quite yet.

Love Awakening, super excited for If. Personally my favorite song is Id-Purpose, and the fact that it made it into sm4sh is even better.

Still looking for people to join. Is there some other place I should look for remixers, or is here the best place?

Fasdfkjl. Angel took Conquest. CURSE YOU ANGEELLLLLL.

Jk, I wanna claim something from Awakening before it's too late for sure, though not sure if I could get something to you by what is it? April 20th?

Can I claim "Prelude" from Awakening? Another one I have a cool idea for but isn't too popular or iconic is I think just called "Can we take a rest? Please?" (gotta lost those titles).

And lastly, I think one of the most iconic tracks from that game is probably "Id - Purpose" which is a fantastic track and if I can have a really good tight electric guitarist to back me up on that one, then I might be able to rock that.

What I can claim with 100% confidence as of right now though, is "Prelude". Is this ok?

Garrett, sent you a PM, check it out. As for the 1st date, changed to May 1st because April 20th sounds weird :-P .

Lol I've been working on that for almost a year! Started as an EDM sort of thing, but now I'm taking it in a speed/power metal direction.

I can probably give you the electric guitar you need if you decide to do that track in the future. Just send an audio file or even MIDI/sheet music/tab (that's preferable) if you got it and I'll see what I can do. I've secretly been wanting to collab with you anyway.

Ah I hope this catches on. I've been playing Fire Emblem for the GBA on the Wii U VC and it's great. I have a lot of pending remixes though so I won't sign in...

For now!

I've been thinking about getting feedback on tracks; I posted a WIP of the track I'm working on in the OCR workshop, but noone gave any feedback. I can assume that this is because people are not familiar with the source material. Because of this, I was thinking about a system where whoever wants to can upload a WIP to the internet (google drive maybe?) and people on this team can take a listen and get feedback. IDK, maybe mine was an isolated incident. What do you guys think; does it sound like a decent idea?

Team feedback sounds good, usually not that many people from the project comment all that much (it's lots of work anyhow) but it has seemed like having a project forum for WIPs is worth the effort.

I haven't progressed my track yet, as I'm swamped with other commitments, but I should be able to work a little bit on my track before the check-in. Thanks for the heads up!

Okay, so as I explained to Coaltergeist, I've decided to finish my remix of Conquest from Awakening outside of this project and do a different FE tune for the album instead.

So in short, if someone else wants to take conquest for the album, go nuts.

10 days before the check-in! Nothing serious, just seeing how everyone's doing :).

Garret is already working on Awakening, and he did express interest in Conquest. If he wants it, he can have it.

(Angel holy crap I love the gif in your sig, btw)

Stuff is really piling up for me, and I have very little music time right now.. so I probably won't have an update for the check-in date.
