  1. Dang. US Residents only. It's a sweet track, definitely would've entered.
  2. Well, I guess the aliens just didn't know about The FRESH PRINCE!
  3. In the very beginning I mostly made stuff with funny/stupid sounding vocalsamples with a 4/4 bassdrum on the background. Just messing around in Impulse Tracker and having a few laughs. That stuff was just supposed to sound stupid and had no real "musical effort" so I don't think it really counts as my very first songs. One of the first songs where I really tried to create actual music instead of random madness would be this one : http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00145/. All the way back from 2000. OCR was quite different back then. Actually, kinda strange that this mix is still on this site. But we all have our history. Yay.
  4. I worked as a sound producer in a radio station years ago and went through loads of sound effect libraries. I actually stumbled on a CD that had loads of sounds used in Doom, already processed and everything. Doors, elevators and yep, monsters. All just random noises with weird effects but when put into a context they work very well. It's weird what you can find while browsing through SFX libraries. Lots of familiar stuff in there.
  5. Guybrush looks like a total douchebag. And I'm not that impressed with the look of the other characters and design in general either. The real curse of the Monkey Island must be 3D-graphics. For me, they really nailed the design, feel and characters of the series in MI3, and everything after that (yeah, basically MI4 - yuck) has felt strange and off, including the new design. I usually don't pay too much attention on graphics etc. but in Monkey Island series the audiovisual experience is a really big part of the game, atleast for me. The design, the way the characters look and stuff like that. It was perfect in MI3. Dang, that game still looks/sounds like a big budget cartoon movie, even with the small screen resolution. Of course, as a huge MI fan I have to check this out, but at the moment I'm not that hyped about this. But yeah, I'm probably just wrong and its gonna kick ass. So yay!
  6. ROCKS! Awesome. What really strikes me here is the superb production. Amazing, crisp sound and mixing. You can really feel the grip of the low-ends. I also really like what you've done with the original. One of my favorite tracks from the NES taken to a completely different direction yet still maintaining the awesomeness of the original. Great and original arrangement. I've been working with this piece myself, so its always interesting to hear what other people get out of it. AWESOME.
  7. Ah, Magnet Man, one of the most memorable tracks from MM3. And I just love what you did with it. The lead melody sounds excellent with the brass treatment. Also, the fact that you have actual, live brass is simply awesome. Thanks!
  8. I started playing bass in 97, I was 13 at the time. A few years after that (maybe 99 or 2000) I started to make music in addition to playing it. Back then I was really interested in electronic music, and playing music and making it were actually two separate hobbies. Then at some point I grew less interested in electronic music and quite automatically the two hobbies combined. Today I hardly use any electronic elements in my music, so the making and the playing is usually the very same thing. I submitted my first remix in 2000. It was a remix of the Megaman 2 Heatman theme. (http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00145/) That was one of the first songs I've ever produced. You can actually kinda follow my progression just by listening to my remixes. The first ones are all electro and somewhere around 2003 or 2004 things start to get more "actual" instruments and stuff. Actually when I think of it : My first contribution, EvilHorde Heatman (2000) is one of the first songs I've ever completed, and my latest remix "El Lagarto" (2008 - http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR01793/) is the last complete song to this day. Cool. So, to answer the question: I started my musical hobby in 1997, and bass is still my main instrument when I make music, so I would say that it took me 12 years to get to where I am. Dang...
  9. Dang. This game is so good I should just buy it AGAIN. One of the best games I've played in years. And: http://kylegabler.com/WorldOfGooSoundtrack/ I also really like the soundtrack. Just the kind of movie soundtrack mood I'm really into.
  10. Wow, beautiful. Too bad I haven't heard the original so its hard for me to say anything videogamemusicwise. But just plain good ol' musicwise: great stuff. The overall feel is very beautiful and the emotional vocals are top notch. This track definitely needs them, and with them, it DELIVERS. Once again: it was absolutely beautiful and the overall dreamy vibe is quite powerful. I like. Thanks!
  11. Someone has probably already said this but : My all time favorites Monkey Island 1 & 2 (and the not so good 4) with Monkey Island 3 graphics and sounds... DDDRRROOOOLLLL.... To me Monkey Island 3 is still one of the best looking (and sounding) games ever. Comparing MI3 and 4 makes me cry. Why in the heck everything has to be 3D nowadays... Just look at World of Goo. Best looking game in years! And yeah, also best in any other category. And now I'm not on the topic anymore. Geez...
  12. Wow, great mood. I like the depth of the track. Lots of stuff going on in a BIG area. Good ambience and a catchy flow. Not the kind of stuff I usually listen to but I still like it. Thanks! Oh yeah, and the guitar is a nice touch.
