Hi everyone! I was recently sent this direction as a potential collaborator and wanted to see if anyone needed some of my instrumental services? I'm working on some tracks on the Star Fox anniversary album and am taking on some claims there so I am probably too busy to dedicate myself to whole track, but would happily lay some tracks down on arrangements made here! Electric/acoustic guitars, Tenor/alto saxophones, some brass, some folk instruments (tin whistle, harmonica), mandolin, and bass guitar You can check out some of my arrangements of other video game themes on my artist profile if interested. Thanks!

Hey, if I can take Mountain Path of Ice Fog, then count me in.  I'm back in the scene, so to speak.

Alrighty, I'll hold that track for you. Do send me via PM a sample of your work, though, as unfortunately I'm unfamiliar with your music.

:)

You can check my remixes at OCR, under my name.  I've done many in the past. :)

Oh shoot, sorry! I looked up your name on Google and while I saw a soundcloud page, I wasn't 100% sure it was yours, is all. For some reason your OCR tracks didn't pop up on the search.

Glad to have you aboard! ;)

Is the Sinistral Battle Theme available, Gario?

Sorry, I missed this!

Unfortunately (or fortunately, pending on your point of view), the Sinistral's battle theme is Battle #3, which has an amazing finished arrangement from Prince uf Darkness and Snappleman. Do take a look at the links on the front page, though - perhaps one of the Sinistral themes when you encounter them is to your liking instead? Just a suggestion!

Double-post time! It seems to be the right time to start getting this ball rolling hard, so here we go!

@bLiNd @Moseph @XPRTNovice @Cyril the Wolf @PabloComa @zykO @Eitzpii @Jorito @Sbeast @DjjD @Amphibious @Alephmale @Quinn Fox

Giving a heads up for people that want to claim tracks without submitting a WIP, this is the last week I'll be taking those claims. After this, there will be two things that will happen:

1. There will be a concurrent competition that I will be organizing that will be utilizing the sources that remain. If one of these compos are available, this will be the strongest opportunity to get a spot on the album as a newer or less recognized arranger moving forward. I will be taking three sources at a time, and aside from the first round (which will be a freestyle round) I will be adding genre conditions/preferences. One more detail is that you will have one month to complete a competition track; ample time to submit something of solid quality, but it's short enough to keep you on your toes and push you toward finishing.

While the sources are being set aside for the competition, though, I will NOT be accepting WIP claims on the track, so if you wait to make a claim past this week I can't promise the track will be available solely to you (though you may put your track among others into the competition). There will be some advantages to working on your track in a competition format, though, so keep an ear out for it!

2. If the competition schedule doesn't claim your track, you still have the opportunity to claim it yourself, but I will ONLY accept claims with a functional WIP attached to it from this point on - there will be no more red claims on the board from this point forward. If you still want a chance to nail your claim, now's the time. Of course, if you've made the claim, awesome! I will be keeping an active, watchful eye on your progress moving forward, so be ready to be bugged by me soon. ;)

 

If you're one of the venerable members that have a near finished track from ages ago, I will be spending the next week getting in touch with you one-by-one, seeing if there's anything I can do to help get you guys the supplies to finish your track (getting in touch with musicians to help, offering feedback if needed, etc.). I've made a cursory attempt to get in touch, but I will soon be actively pursuing your finished WAV. I am hoping to have these particular finished WAVs long before the final deadline, though, so expect me to be giving you guys some annoying nudges from time to time.

Alright, here's hoping I start seeing people pushing forward with their music soon!

I got a wip already, it's just that I'm not happy with it yet. I hope/expect to have some time in the next days to work on it. Regardless you'll get a wip from me end of the month.

Sweet! There's no pressure to get something in QUITE yet, so feel free to take your time if you need to. First deadline is literally just for non-WIP claims, so you're covered.

 is not on the list? I have a WIP for it, I was thinking of a calming folksy acoustic arrangement.

Alas, I don't think I named it correctly on the front page (Sorry!). That track actually was covered with a solo piano performance by Evory, so I don't think that spot is available... I'm not one to shut a decent track down, though. Send me what you have, and I'll see if we can make it fit. I have some ideas of how it would fit with bookending an album like this, so get in touch with your WIP. :)

Logimos Shrine (Below Ground) / Lost World

Is that good? I see it on the unclaimed list. :D

It's indeed a claim you can stake. I'm not too familiar with your music, though, so would there be a chance that you could PM me some samples of your work? Thanks - I'll hold that track for you until then.

yeah sure

And I'll have a demo ASAP - I know my arrangement stuff... I just need to step up my instrumentation game and my mixing/production game.

Haha, shoot. You don't have to compete for the tracks yet - you're in the clear. The whole 'Survival of the fittest' thing is for people that miss a deadline listed, which is not for another month or so.

A WIP tomorrow would be great, though - I look for it. ;)

Alrighty, so the end of February has come and gone, and I've received a lot of claims to track (as well as a few WIPs!). We're moving along great!

Now we're in the stage where I start ampin' the pressure on you guys a bit, so heads up! I'll likely be checking in whenever I can on your progress, so keep in touch on that. The next due date is April 31st, so if you haven't submit a WIP yet that's when I'll need to have something.

As you know, as far as making a claim on a track, the period where I'll be listing your claim on here has passed. Feel free to vocalize a claim here, but if someone else submits a WIP of it, that's tough luck on your part! If you want a hold on a track, submit a workable WIP and it'll still be yours!

In the meantime, I'm still hashing out ideas for a compo to hold. It needs to make sense, but it also needs to have a tangible incentive to get people to participate. I've got some ideas, but there's still some back room discussing that I need to figure out before I lay it on the table.

Alright, folks - let's push this to the next stage of the project!
