Welcome to the Album Thread for Final Fantasy VIII: Collision Course.

ff8_icon_thread.png

The concept for this album stretches back to 2010 where a tracklisting and title were chosen for what one would have
dreamed would be a great Final Fantasy VIII album. With your help, I'm hoping to make that a reality. Right now is the
recruitment phase, so if you are a posted ReMixer, feel free to make a claim -- first come, first served on any source.
If you are not a posted ReMixer, you are still welcome to join the album roster if you can produce high quality mixes, or
are capable of producing a high quality arrangement and structure, then delivering your stems for mixing/mastering.
Please submit an audition. Mixing/Mastering would be handled by me for anyone who requests it.
There is no genre restriction, however please give much consideration to preserving the spirit of the source.

tldr: first come, first served for posted remixers

other artists, please submit an audition!

mixing/mastering available on request

if it's an emotional piano source, I reserve the right to bounce back your gangsta dubstep screamo mix

Also if you're going to claim something like The Extreme, keep in mind it's gotta be excelsior

Awesome! I'm not sure if I want to claim anything yet but I wish you luck with this. VIII has some damn good songs.

EDIT: Rexy should claim Find Your Way and write an awesome piano piece for that :D .

I'm making a claim for Man with the Machine Gun. FFVIII arguably has the best soundtrack in the series, so if I finish this one in a timely manner I may do more.

Let's do this.

Actually, if it interests you, I could claim the track The Mission, which isn't on the list. It's quite cool :grin:

 

Also, someone (Jordanius *cough*) should do The Winner.

You could claim it! You're a posted mixer after all, though you would be bringing collaborators in with you too, right? ;) 

Jordanius already did The Winner, but he did it for the FF2 album. I kept asking him to do Victory but mashed up with a different theme from the series, I guess I messed everything up though. I mean I'd love to have him on this album for sure if he stops hiding and comes back..

I could pick up some guitar players (probably Brostok haha) if I write something with guitars, but I'll see what I come up with first :P

I had something in mind along the lines of "Vector Point Engineering Sigma Fortress". Would that work for you?

My Round 4 remix for the SFRG compo.

Basically, choirs+orch+large beat as the main formula. I was thinking more solo vox and no guitar.

Force Your Way is mine.

I actually had a WIP for it since I started working on it ages ago, but it's not up to my current standards so I'll be doing it from scratch.

That sounded cool, and featured a lot of the instrumentation I could see you using in The Extreme. It'd be hard to find a guitarist who could cleanly play those lines anyway, so it'll be interesting to see how you tackle them :)

Ok ;) I'll mark you down! Bring some of that 1st place DoD to the track

I need to listen to those tracks before choosing. I'm not familiar with FFVIII but I'm sure there's some cool music to be remixed!
