Congrats to Chernabogue on his first posted solo ReMix on OCR!! Alexandre has done a LOT for the VGM arrangement scene over the years, both musically and in terms of the coordination & execution of various projects. He's someone working hard to make our scene & community what it is, and I just wanna throw some special props his way by pointing that out. This is, perhaps not shockingly, our first ReMix from 3-D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night for Windows, but (gratuitous Hollywood composer comparison!!) if you haven't heard of or played the game, as long as you're a fan of Danny Elfman's work, especially Beetlejuice-era stuff (aka the best!), you're PROBABLY gonna dig this. The artist writes:
"Hi, guys! Hope you're all doing well! An orchestral arrangement of two tunes from the PC game, 3-D Ultra Pinball: Creep Night. Hope everything's okay, and that it'll go through the panel this time! :) Cheers!"
Production and samples may not be top notch, but they get the job done, and the arrangement is flamboyant and playful and dark in all the ways that so many Elfman pieces were back in the day. It feels a bit lazy to keep reiterating the comparison, but to avoid it would be downright silly. Larry opines:
"I absolutely loved the arrangement for this when I first heard it, but in order to save time, I initially rejected this track without taking it to the judges, since the production had a number of flaws with it. Thanks to Alex for being so patient in working with me to address my 1-on-1 criticisms and get this piece sounding more realistic and cohesive in the end. Perfect stuff for a dark and stormy night!"
Thanks to Larry by proxy for providing his feedback & working with Alex; revisions did the trick, and the arrangement really deserved the attention & effort. Palpable adds:
"Alex has been sending us music for several years now and I've loved watching his improvement. This is a fun, creepy orchestral take on the music from the classic Windows game that will inevitably get compared to Danny Elfman. There's a lot of elements that remind me of Elfman's style, especially the hyper organ run starting at 1:53, which is also one of the best parts of the remix. Alex can still tighten up his production a little bit, but with arrangements this good, I'm happy to have his music on the site."
Couldn't have said it better myself!
