The first of the last ReMixes of 2002 has arrived, in the form of a sort of joke / mad, twisted experiment from Mazedude. I'll let Chris explain himself:
"As it says on my page - http://listen.to/mazedude - The reason I did this was quite a joke - this game and its music both have graced several "most annoying game" and "worst music" polls in the OCR Messageboards. So - someone had to remix it! :-) Might as well be Mazedude. Also, I dunno if you've ever messed with shoving EXE, TXT, FNT and whatever else format files into the sample bank of a tracker, but the results are quite fun sometimes. Most of the time it's garbled white noise, but now and then you can find a pitch! Ah, and then you can track with it. There are several moments in the tune where that's what you hear - ONLY non-Wav samples. Files that were never, ever meant to be samples. Garbage! Bwuhaha! Quite a fun twist of irony, eh? Most annoying game music, remixed with garbage! And to top it off, I made it Happy Industrial. Like - the techno folks have Happy Hardcore, but what about the industrial people? Heh, so yeah - all in all this was a fun and silly experiment, I don't expect a ton of folks to dig it, but it just had to be done."
So there you have it - how can one argue with the impeccable logic of one Chris Getman? Seriously, this is pretty "avant garde" in its usage of . . . alternative sound sources. But it's amazing just how musical this mix actually is, when you consider the lackluster original and the somewhat random pallette of sounds at play. It's certainly not what I would ever call "smooth" - many of the textures are abrasive and will hurt and maim you if you have weaksauce ears or what not. I definitely recommend checking this out, if only to hear how a talented dude of maze can take .exe and .txt files and one of the less memorable NES soundtracks ever and end up with something good, at times downright inspired. Truly neat.
