Ladies and gentleman, I am proud to introduce our newest ReMixer and ReMix: The Fat Man himself, submitting a ReMix of one of his own compositions from the 7th Guest soundtrack!!
How cool is that? For those not in the know, The Fat Man a.k.a George Sanger has been a major force in the world of video and computer game music for almost two decades. Going beyond scoring amazing soundtracks to games like the 7th Guest and Wing Commander series, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Loom, and more, The Fat Man has made substantial headway for widespread appreciation of game music as an art form, by doing interviews (check out http://dperry.com/george.html for a great piece that lists some pointers on getting into the industry, and also the gear George uses) and also running GamePlayMusic, an alternative way for game composers to get their music heard & used. He also hosts Project Bar-B-Q, a unique "interactive music think tank" that meets annually in Texas. Are you sold yet? Suffice it to say, when I received an email from The Fat Man himself (who, embarrassingly for me, pointed out that he wasn't listed as the composer for 7th Guest, which I promptly fixed), I was quite honored. I literally remember reading about Mr. Sanger in the July '94 issue of Keyboard magazine, and several other places as well. I would even say that reading those articles contributed enough to my interest in game music such that OCR might not exist if I hadn't. Long story short - check out The Fat Man's site, especially if you're an aspiring game composer.
The Fat Man also mailed to say he enjoyed AmIEviL's take on The 7th Guest from a while back, so kudos to him for getting the "original composer nod" :) George also threw a ReMix of his own work from The 7th Guest my way - his only dance remix to date. Did I mention how cool this all is? Well, let me gush no more, I just think it's a great achievement for all the artists and fans here at OCR when a major industry figure submits his own mix, or even for that matter stops by to say hi (Mr. Uematsu, we're all waiting ^^), so like I said, be sure to check out what The Fat Man has cooking over at his site.

What, you're still here? Oh, right, the ReMix. I suppose I should speak to that as well :) There's some novel and unique synth textures in this subdued electronica arrangement that will tickle your ears after so many saw & square waves, starting with a deep FM-ish synth bass that has some of the qualities of an electric slap bass, coupled with detuned clangorous ambient pads that fade off into an abyss of reverb. Things build up to 1'03" where full drums come in and a great, gritty, flanged synth enters as well. These are the basic ingredients, and the piece is more subdued BGM than traditional song structure, but the atmosphere is there, the mixing is on, and the sounds used in particular are charismatic and individual. This is one instance where we don't have to guess much as to whether the original composer would think it were faithful enough to the original :) Highly Recommended.
