Hello everyone!

I am back to help contribute to the community, and the next new album project I previously was getting together was for Secret of Mana. After a couple of years of mostly absence, I return to finish this good work up!

I want in on this. Not sure which track, but I've got my eyes on Spirit of the Night or I Closed My Eyes. I've got a few free days to throw something together, so I'll see what comes to me for either of those tracks over the weekend.

I could still be up for doing Little Sprite but I'd need some talent to pull it off. Want a live violinist who can shred. If @some1namedjeff is interested to play and riff off an arrangement, I'll put it together and claim it. Could also opt for @DrumUltimA to do some mallet/percussion and maybe @bustatunez for some basic flute/etc but need some fleshing to do around the violin first. Gotta keep that fast spirit alive so it'll need some real talent like those guys.

Are there style/genre requirements?

I am definitely interested in some of these unclaimed tracks.

Quality Assurance:

Dan's Sound Cloud Page

I don't have anything on OCRemix 'cause in my remixin' days I was a VGMixer? and a VGMIDIer before that.

dannthr - what track would you like to do?

Jay - I'll mark you down, I'm sure finding the live instrumentation you want will be possible. I know Doug mentioned to me he'd be willing to collab when I talked to him last week, and there are a couple of violinists around the community. I'll help contact people you need if you want.

I see my claim from the previous iteration didn't transfer to this one... I'll look at the tracklist to see which one I'll pick then

Let's see if Jeff responds. He's what came to mind for the part but I do feel like I need another lead for color. Not certain what and the obvious for a flute is not something I'm sure of but I would have someone in mind for that. 

If someone out there had a desire and wanted to riff on the melody with some variations that could serve as a spring board. 

A live upbeat realistic performance riffing on the sections with variations is my general idea. Fleshing out the instrumentation and giving it new life.

I could do "I Closed My Eyes."

Are we allowed to take liberties with additional source material?

Depends on what you have in mind :) .

Weaving in some of the more principle themes to give it more substance as the last cue on the album.

Sweet!  So am I to assume there are not genre/style guides?

Mainly I want the music to sound organic, but otherwise, no particular restrictions.

I'd be more than happy to help finish this project.  I'm not a posted mixer but I have contributed work to the Materia Collective's FF8 album:

If you'd like to have me on the project, two tracks that interest me are Secret of the Arid Sands and A Curious Happening.

We should collab on something.

Wes (Bahamut, not Emu), put me down for A Wish, Crystal Forest.

Glad to see this revived.

I've always thought "Danger" could be remixed in the style of prog. metal band Andromeda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOlPFPW5Tuo.

Not sure if I should try claiming it though...

Yo dude I would be super down to collab on a prog metal version of Danger! Not sure if you're trying to do that. Danger is the first track that comes to my mind when it comes to stuff from SoM that I would want to do :D. I believe you already heard my stuff because you hooked me up with some feedback on my thrash metal FF6 remix in the workshop section (which I still have to respond to...haven't had a ton of time in the past week!)

With that said, if anyone wants a collaborator I'd love to work with someone on a remix! I can lay down guitar tracks/solos and help with arranging, but mixing/production is not my strong suit.

I'd loooove to claim Flight of the Unknown if that's cool. I don't have any posted remixes, but I'm doing stuff for the FF3, FF8 albums and others as well(I probably wouldn't be able to get a solid WIP together until I make more progress on those in the next month or two though). I'd also definitely be open to collaborating on it with people. Have a few ideas for an arrangement. You can check out the stuff I did for DoD or just click the Soundcloud link in my sig to hear my other remixes. I'm pretty new to the scene so the mixing in my 2015 entries isn't so great, but I think my most recent FF6 DoD entry sounds pretty good.

If I can't claim any tracks then I'd love to collab on someone else's.

That sounds interesting! Your material in that WIP was pretty good.

If Bahamut is up for it I could claim Danger then.
