Zelda Underworld remix (Don't Blink) in Post Your Game ReMixes! Posted February 23, 2010 · Report reply I hope the poster beneath me is not representing the general viewpoint of this site. I listened to the entire track and I found plenty of variations in there. I think the arrangement you're using is progressive and interesting. As far as using low quality samples, I think the quality of the arrangement is sufficient to dismiss that single shortcoming. I'm new on this forum so I don't have the general feel for the spirit of the place yet, but I hope that some of these dismissive posters I have seen thus far aren't the norm here.Some of these submission standards that have been reported on below are quite subjective, and from my interpretation they aren't meant to be combined like a dog-pile on an unsuspecting receiver. I believe they are meant to steer submissions toward a certain level of quality, and I believe some balance is needed during the weighing of them. Furthermore, these interpretations of your 'pizzicatos' are a bit personalized, aren't they? I mean, did they ask you if it was your intention for them to sound the way they do? Are they saying that fidelity is not an artistic variable in electronic music? I hope not, otherwise their opinions might be considered lacking in texture and understanding of the limitless nature of music and the imagination. And isn't it a little oxymoronic to suggest that electronic music must be humanized when it is based on a medium that was incapable of humanization? Sure, you could choose to humanize it for effect, but you chose not to, so I don't think you should "work on that" unless you see fit.The standards are extremely subjective, and so is the criticism of thread-goers sometimes, but its the price you pay around here if you want it submitted. I guess its the dirty taboo that isnt too often discussed. The bottom line is they are looking for high quality mixes, and at its most basic necessity, the concept of judgment is going to be subjective. I agree with you though. When people start telling me what should go where and how i should arrange the music, its a bit silly, unless you are looking for that kind of feedback. The conundrum of music is that anything can be considered music (and in some cultures, literally anything that makes noise is used for music), so notions of subjectivity, however pragmatic, only go as far as the individual experience. Basically what im saying is, here they are looking for the Renoirs and Jan VanEycks of the music world, not so much the Jackson Pollocks. But hey, its their Louvre! They get to decide which pictures to hang on the wall.
