Well, the Oscars are over... I was cheering for There Will be Blood but the Coen Brothers are awesome and deserve praise whenever and wherever it can be found. Nice to see Jon Stewart playing Wii tennis, too. norg's previous submission was his collab with Snapple for Voices of the Lifestream; if you haven't already, definitely check out the recently posted music video contest entries. The winners are awe-inspiring, but ALL the vids are worth watching - congratulations and thanks again to all entrants!
This ReMix is norg's first solo submission, arranging the Moon and Select themes from Ducktales. We still don't know the original composer(s) for this game - Larry mentioned that some suspect Junko Tamiya, which would make sense, but there doesn't appear to be hard evidence. At any rate, it's a soundtrack that has yielded some excellent mixes, and norg continues that trend with this jamfest, which came in second place out of over fifty entries at MAGFest 6's Dwelling of Duels. norg writes:
"I’m going to try to work up a few more arrangements that I’ve done to be OCR-worthy and try to hang out there more often so that I can get to know everyone a bit more and not freak out over all the OCR shirts that invaded magfest. (:"
I actually saw him today, talking about bacon and fast food with Snapple, in #ocrwip, so he's making good on those intentions. If this mix is any indication, I'd personally love to see more of his stuff here. Solid production, creative arrangement, and wicked soloing combine for an over-the-top piece that even works in a cameo from the cartoon's intro theme at the very end. I watched the hell out of that show back in the day... each time I saw Uncle Scrooge swimming in his vault, I could hardly contain my envy. If ever I become a millionaire, that's what I'm doing with my money. Screw investments and portfolios and all that nonsense... nothing says "I'm rich and I couldn't care less about the problems of the world" than swimming in your own opulence ;) But I digress... shimmering bells intro, but the second that bass guitar comes in, you know it's gonna be a rock track. I love the repetition/crescendo at 1'59" - the guitar might be playing the same thing over and over, but it's different each time, builds in intensity, and the stuff underneath is changing up more than enough. In general, both the soloing and overall arrangement has a lot of same-note runs and fills that add a lot of variation. The bass solo fill at 3'10" is just one example of keeping things fresh and not losing energy; it's one thing to rock out, which this certainly does, but it never gets in any sort of rut, thanks mostly due to arrangement that's constantly throwing new ideas into the mix. Awesome stuff.
