  1. Heya everyone!

    I used to do quite a bit of remxing around here, but it was back a couple of years ago so I figure a lot of people here don't know who I am;

    You may have heard these;


    In any case, I've since then started a band called Contemplator, and we just released a full-length album, "Sonance", mixed and mastered by Colin Marston of Gorguts/Krallice/Dysrhythmia. It's somewhere in the middle of Dream Theater, Opeth, more extreme metal like Gorguts, Martyr, and a serious dose of VG influences.

    Live violin and viola (and cello) on the album are courtesy of Jeff Ball, another OCRemixer you might've heard of!

    So yeah, come visit us on Facebook, go have a listen to the album on Bandcamp or Youtube! I'd love to have your feedback on the music too! If you're really curious about the composition/recording/production process for the album, we also produced a short making-of video with footage from the studio and some blurbs about how we made this thing.




  2. Hey man! Thanks :)

    Yep, it's that same Antoine, but he is playing guitars in Contemplator (not on the tracks on Bandcamp though, this lineup happened after the recording of the EP). I actually also played in Augury for a short run replacing Forest on one tour and a couple of local shows.

    Thanks for the support man! If you feel like it, we're playing tomorrow (this saturday) in Quebec City supporting Symbolic :P

  3. Hey!

    Been a while since I've been active here, so HEYA, was making remixes a few years ago around here and on VGMix (sadface), but I've been honestly pretty out of touch with the community lately.

    Just released my album last week; finally got to release an album of original material. It blends pretty much all my influences together - it's metal, it does get a bit over the top at some points, I haven't made any compromise to try to be accessible or easy to listen to. There is some VGM influence in there, of course :)

    So, please have a listen if that sounds like something you could dig!




  4. 2- I am cheaper than anyone they're planning to contract.

    Not necessarily a good thing. It might actually raise flags for the producer and make him think you're really desperate/trying to get your first gig/not up to the task.

    Only things I can think of is get your name out there, send resumes, keep your eyes open for opportunities, and don't give up after a week. If you're looking into getting into the games industry, seriously consider brushing up your sound design skills, download trials for audio engines (fmod, wwise, xact...), get familiar with the concepts of how audio in games work, get the books, etc.

  5. Thanks guys.

    And Blind Hornet, I think this is just a case of having different philosophies about remixing. I'm not trying to stir up nostalgia or evoke the original feel, quite the contrary in fact. I'm trying to create something new based on the original music.

    In a way, the only thing that remains of the original song here is the notes (sorry, but the themes of the original are ALL over the place, even if it's not always obvious), the instrumentation and the overall wackiness/chaos of the track. Dunno if you're familiar with my mixes in general, but I tend to follow that line pretty much all the time.
