  1. Don't forget that we are also building an instrument panel of people who play live instruments and are part of the project that remixers can ask. Considering I can play several live instrument, I think I'll put some down. I'm not exactly what you would call a pro at any of them, but I could pull something together in a pinch.
  2. UPDATE: Modus has passed his audition and is now a remixer on the project. Congrads and welcome!
  3. Well, don't look at it as "I can't play an instrument, so I can't join". That's not it at all. The instrumentalists will come. Think of it more as "Now's an opportunity to hear what a real instrument sounds like in my remixes". Or even "Yay! I get to remix a Skies of Arcadia song!"
  4. Yeah... about that... I forgot to do that consent thing you're suppose to do for projects. I already did it for the Mario 64 one though.Kira of Trance was a waste of time, money, everything. I shouldn't have ever used that... It's Electric Concerto, and I do genre fusions. I will say, I love how the album came out. Awesome work!
  5. Updated the first post with youtube links to the sources of the tracks.
  6. I must say that, arrangement-wise, this is freaking amazing! Production wise, make this stereo, get it out of this mono thing you have going on... Like, make some instrumenst on the left speaker and some on the right, etc. Other than that, with some mastering, you got gold here. EDIT: Nevermind, my speakers weren't plugged in right, so it sounded mono...
  7. I'll start by saying that it's an awesome start, but you need some change ups. It's a tad on the repetitive side. Try changing up the progression or, better yet, add more juice to the song progression. You know, get my heart pumping a little or something. On the production side, I think the high end frequencies are a tad too high, you might want to EQ those down some. Or use a multiband compressor. Mess around with it some and see what you get!
  8. We got Fishy on board with electric guitar, at his discretion.
  9. Yes... Somehow it went into the spam folder... Checking it now.EDIT: Audition passed. Welcome to the project!
  10. Hey, vocals are vocals. Go ahead and send an e-mail with your stuff.
  11. Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade Recruiting has begun... again. Please read guidelines for auditioning before PMing me please. Welcome to the thread for the OC Remix collaborative site album Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade. The video game Skies of Arcadia has an excellent soundtrack, and I believe it's time to help it shine! Project Details ______________________________ Project Coordinator: Electric Concerto Remixers: Electric Concerto SkyRiderX FinaleCadence Sbeast Instruments: MangaMan - Vocals Orangedragon - Vocals Electric Concerto - Electric Guitar Gregory Nazarian - Electric Guitar Electric Concerto - Acoustic Guitar Electric Concerto - Piano Electric Concerto - Violin Electric Concerto - Trumpet Electric Concerto - Banjo Artwork: RurouniZel Project Theme A Sailor's Serenade is an approach at appreciation with live instruments. So the project theme involves the use of at least one (1) acoustic or electronic live instrument in each remix. - Electric guitars, basses, drums, keyboards, and electric strings like electric violins are acceptable. - Sequenced virtual violins or other instruments that sound real are not. - If you are a sequencer and/or can't/don't know how to play a live instrument, collaborating with an artist who can is acceptable. - Vocals are also an acceptable live instrument. Audition Guidelines Please e-mail auditions to djeconcerto at gmail dot com (fixed e-mail for spam prevention) or PM me through these forum's PM system. Auditions are the best way for the project coordinators to get an idea of quality. - Auditioning materials need to be relevant to the part of the project you want to be part of. I.E. Remixers need to send music, instrument players need to send samples of their instrument playing, artist need to send artwork, etc. - Please send at least two samples as your auditioning material. - Artists who are invited to the project by the project coordinators are exempt from auditions. (We obviously know about their artist quality in that we felt compelled to invite them.) - Auditions are preferred to be e-mailed as opposed to PMed because the e-mail is checked several times a day. - Auditions DO NOT require a live instrument, however, if you are a musician that uses one, please audition with its involvement. - If you e-mail your audition, you can send the auditioning material as an attachment. Project Goals I would like to see a remix album of at least 14 tracks, but more would be better. If remixers would like to partake in more than one track, their second selection must wait for first selections to be complete. (Wait for everyone to have firsts before getting seconds.) New remixers can grow, as this project could help them learn many audio production techniques. New remixers should not be afraid to ask for help, and knowledgeable remixers should be able to help them. Many of you might be concerned about the previous attempt of this project, where I failed to communicate and the project ended up collecting dust. School and work have a way of doing that. But I am determined to see this to the end, and as I do not see the last attempt as a failure, but rather as an eye opener of what I was doing wrong. Timeline I'd be lying if I said the album could get done in a year. But that is the current goal. So let me propose the timeline: 7/1/14 - Recruitment begins. Recruitment will end when the goal of 10 - 14 remixers is reached. 9/1/12 - First Works in Progress (WIP) is due. WIPs include any remix and artwork. Nothing special is expected, but something should be submitted. Submission is e-mailing the WIP to a project coordinator. 11/1/12 - Second WIP is due. This is a more important update. Remixes should have the bones of the song complete. Artwork decisions should be complete and first drafts submitted. 2/1/12 - Third WIP is due. Remixes should be in the final stages of design, as well as the artwork. That way, mastering/digitizing of the project can begin. 6/1/12 - Final remixes and artwork due. That way we can begin judging and final touches before publishing. 7/1/13 - Project release. As I've said, this is a goal for the project, but deadlines get pushed back due to personal life and/or involvement with other projects. These are to be expected. All I ask is that you communicate your needs to the project coordinators so that they can work with you. Dropping off the face of the planet will only get you tossed from the project. Track Listing Skies of Arcadia has a pretty extensive track list, and in no way am I expecting every song to be covered. But the entirety of the track list is available for remixing for the project.

I already know and understand. Instead, suggest ways to help this one succeed. Thank you. EDIT 2: Time to dust this off and try again. Got some time. Recruiting process will begin next month, but you can show interest. If you were previously on the remixer and/or instrument list, let me know if you're still interested and I'll put you back on. Sorry about this dropping off like it did. I was finishing school and ended up moving (twice) and spaced the whole thing. So lets give this another shot, shall we?
  12. Can I make a request if it's not too late? I'd like my Remixer name to be changed back from Kira of Trance to Electric Concerto. Thank you.
  13. That's the problem with trance kicks... They sound the same... I've been doing some experimenting with an even newer sound. So I might incorporate that in. It's...... different.
  14. Probably not. And technically it can only be a failure if it never succeeds. "Should have"? Does this mean it's too late? That's the thing with this site, there are ALWAYS too many projects.
  15. One thing I should mention is that this project has a condition for the music. Remixers must use at least one real instrument. Not a real sounding virtual instrument, but actually play something. Keyboards and electric guitars count as real instruments, so if you want to use them, you can.
  16. I'm actually still working on this, sorry about the long delay for an update. I am rerecording the guitar parts with a higher quality guitar and doing a master EQ.
  17. Yes, all tracks are up for grabs. If you were previously on the project and want to get your track back, you'll have to audition, pass, and select your song before other remixers get the chance to. Sorry, but I think this is fair for everyone.
  18. I decided to start the recruitment over again. Check the first post for more info.
  19. In due time. First I'm trying to build some credentials, the I got to built and refine a schedule. But I still plan on finishing this project, it's just put on temporary hold.
  20. UPDATE http://www.electricconcerto.com/music/wip/videogame/lavendertown2.mp3 I redid a lot of the instruments and had a buddy of mine help me out with a solo. Also did some more EQing. More feedback please, I feel this track is soooo close.
  21. Awesome advice! I got some new strings for the acoustic guitar and a new mic, so hopefully I can dish out a better tone. The old strings were about 20 yes old! Also, I'll put in some more practice for the electric guitar bits and get a more solid play in. And now that I think about it, I agree with the drum fill idea. I'll have a new version out soon!
  22. UPDATE: http://www.electricconcerto.com/music/wip/videogame/lavendertown2.mp3 So I decided to redo the whole things. I made several changed and after several hours of hard work, I believe the remix is done. So any tweeking you think I need to do, let me know. Thanks. PS In the original post, I kept the first version of the remix so you can compare the two, but the second version is the final one that I plan on going with.
  23. Source: Pokemon Blue - Ghost Town Remix Version 4: http://electricconcerto.com/music/lavendertown4.mp3 So I'm doing some experimenting with this sound. I don't even know what genre of music to put it in! O_o So I was looking up on an urban legend about the theme to Lavender Town and felt compelled to make a ReMix of it. I haven't really been in the remixing scene lately (working on an album of original music), but I felt so compelled to to this remix, it was compelling. Know what I mean? So anyway, here is the final draft of the remix. I'm still new to this type of music, so any and all feedback would be SO helpful! Thank you for your time, and enjoy! UPDATE: Because of a derp moment, I forgot to switch this back to "Finished" when I meant it to be as such. That's why it's going from "Work in Progress" to "Mod Review". Sorry about the confusion.
  24. Just to correct something: Hard to say... I could try, but I'm involved in other projects whom the directors are getting pissed off at me... I'm busy with work and school but I've completed my website so now I can move on to finishing my projects. I'll try to finish it for your project, but I can't promise anything... If you can, fine. If not, then it's not a major problem. I did not beg to join. Neither am I interested in joining any projects from this point on. Thank you for the opportunity, but I think I'll concentrate my future efforts on my personal remixes. I will end my post with a sorry I wasn't around. I thought I had finished it, and the only thing that needed fixing was the title. Carry on, and enjoy the album!
