The People's Remix Competition 365
PRCv15-01

Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

Welcome to the 15th season of PRC. Hopefully 2018 will be a good year for PRC and Ocremix, with many new remixes. It is already a while ago, but it was HoboKa who managed to win PRC362, he defeated Flurry of Flames and Silverpool. PRC363 was won by FreakyT, Dex and again Flurry of Flames entered that round as well. Both HoboKa and FreakyT picked a source for PRC365 which is a double source round. So the Multiple Source Rounds rules written in the rules section apply this time.

You know, Radical Dreamers's soundtrack has gotten a ton of remixes, but no one has ever touched "Portal to Open Grounds", the organ track that plays exactly once. It's too bad, since I always thought it sounded cool!

Anyway, so that's why I'd like to pick Radical Dreamers: Portal to Open Grounds as one of the sources for PRC365.

On Radical Dreamers' YouTube video, "Le Trésor Interdit" is the French for "The Forbidden Treasure" .
You're welcome.

Besides, I think i've got an idea on how to Remix it, I'll see if it fits well. Count me in !

EDIT : Here's my entry for this round, I just reorchestrated "Portal To Open Grounds", I didn't felt like adding to this music will do good so I simply tried to figure out the context and re-take it so that it would still fit in the game.
The MIDI source was soooooooooooo helpful.
(I tried to register on ThaSauce but i still haven't recieved the e-mail to validate my account so I'm dumping it on the thread, hoping it won't cause trouble.)

Just realized that the chords of Portal to Open Grounds resemble "In the Rain" from Cowboy Bebop.  0:37

Thanks. Hopefully you get the mail, otherwise I'll upload the song myself next week.

Results time.

AxLR got 10 points and gets the last place wooden spoon.

Dex gathered 14 points, which bring him a second place.

And the winner of PRC365 by unanimous decision is PlanarianHugger with 18 points.

PlanarianHugger congratulations. It was a win by unanimous decision, everyone voted for you. As a reward, you may pick a source for PRC367. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your source as fast as you can, but before this Monday (29 January 2018), 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).

You may select any source for any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links:

1: PlanarianHunger

2: Dex

I really enjoyed both of those remixes, they were astonishingly creative, which makes me feel uncomfortable and not worthy of the first place at all.

It was quite hard to decide which was the best but PlanarianHunger did both musics and props for that because it was really tricky to make them fit together, plus that chilly 80's vibe was THE atmosphere to aim with those two songs.

Dex really had an amazing idea of giving Portal To Open Grounds a Beethoven feeling because it felt good with the style of the music. Plus his performance was really good. But In terms of creativity, he was a little bit behind. Mostly because PlanarianHunger could throw back his remix into the game without it feeling off.

Both did really well and I'm quite glad to have them facing me, It made me grow a lot, and I honestly lost confidence in front of their song, but that's okay, It was really good.

So yeah, you got my reasoning.

Heh, Better luck next time.

I took the time to read all your comments and I will take note of each of them.

Congrats to PlanarianHugger to his win, and I do really like both remixes.

Keep trying. It takes time, experience and effort to get there. Look back at some of my early entrees and you can see how bad they are in comparison to my newer stuff (at least in my opinion). It sounds like you have the right attitude and that's half the battle. I look forward to hearing your future work.

Or be an emo like me and try hard anyways.  Not recommended - emotions suck.  Either way works, just never stop, keep on bashing your head against the wall until it breaks through, then the blood, sweat and tears pays off :)
