2000 was the first full year of OC ReMix's existence...
... we posted 158 mixes and survived our first slashdotting. We converted the site from a side-project to its own sub-domain at remix.overclocked.org - some of you remember these as the "orange days," for obvious reasons. Sure, not everything we posted was musical gold, but the world was introduced to hillbilly Bubble Bobble, Shael's groin, and the glory of McVaffe and AmIEviL. Mustin, po, Steffan, Peeples, Jivemaster, and many others all made their OCR debuts. For a relatively young website, we were off to a pretty damn awesome start!
Next up we've got another newcomer... err, newcomers... err, kinda: Several members of The Runaway Five participated in this larger ensemble. It seems like Canadian universities have all the fun, eh? We had Paul & the U. of Manitoba give us our first live orchestral mix back in 2008, and now Toronto joins the fun. This is a live recording as well, and you can hear a lot of ambient noise. In my opinion, it adds spontaneity and a sort of 1920's Savoy/club feeling, but your mileage may vary. Brendan provided the full credits and some comments:
- Arranged by: Brendan McEroy (April 2009).
- Performed by: the University of Toronto 10 O'Clock Big Band:
- DIRECTED BY: Terry Promane
- Rhythm Section - Brendan McElroy (Bass), Tyson Kerr (Piano), Mack Longpre (Drums), Alex Goodman (Guitar), Trumpets - Matt MacLean, Ryan Brower, Jesse Malone, Marie Gaudy, Trombones - Steve Ward, Robin Jessome, Aidan Sibley, Josh Bird, Saxophones - Taylor Cook (Alto), Brendan Cassidy (Alto), Rob Christian (Tenor), Dave Rubel (Tenor), Anthony Rinaldi (Baritone).
"This is the only recording I have of this arrangement and it may have some clipping, etc. It's a pretty decent recording for a handheld recorder so hopefully it suffices...It's a little hard to recognize but the intro is straight from the source track as well (the second half of the melody). I also added a shout chorus featuring a bunch of other Mario melodies. I hope you all like it!"
Badass performances abound, but I gotta give a mad shout out to Mr. Rinaldi on that Bari - mean stuff. What I love about this arrangement is the authenticity: it feels like it's from a different time period, and the part-writing is thoroughly believable. Mr. Luers writes:
"I I think this is really charming. The atmosphere is great, and for a handheld recorder there is a nostalgic, warm sound to everything. Arrangementwise, there is enough dominant source, and plenty of interpretation. Some nice solos (your bari player is a monster), and everything clicks. The drum solo was a little bit self-indulgent, but I can dig it."
"This is a very clever arrangement. Some very nice work done on the rhythm of the melody and the dabs of new harmony fit nicely. Nothin' wrong with a bit of self indulgence in jazz. Also enjoyed the inclusion of the underworld theme. The recording quality including the random dudes talking just add to the charm of a big band, it feels like you're there watching it there in a small cosy club. Nice stuff all around and look forward to more subs from you guys."
Excellent, very charismatic stuff from the R5 and the University of Toronto 10 O'Clock Big Band!
