  1. Yeah, this is amazing. Excellent. All the arrangement's incredible, but the production could be better (how much better, I wouldn't know). I always have the same problem: good arrangement, not so good production. So I'm better off stickin' to the simple piano remixes. I don't know what it is, but the drum samples you used... I don't like 'em. Maybe turn down that tambourine a little bit in some parts; just a little, not too much of course. Other than that, great.
  2. http://tindeck.com/listen/kzuo A piano mix of Aquatic Ambience; took me 3 hours to put together these six minutes. All feedback, good and bad, is very welcome. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I'm Hunter "Rubix" Short. I've got ADD, OCD, potential Asperger's and slight social anxiety; this gives me capacity to be whacky, wild, and obnoxious (what I call "letting loose" or "having fun"), yet also at times calm, coy, cool, collected, and what some might or might not call "smart". I talk and type with hick dialect to effectively lower my communication standard and relax some; born, raised, and residing in Texas. Musical Influence I've loved Phil Collins since he and Mark Mancina scored Disney's Tarzan when I was 3 or 4. I believe that was the first CD I ever called my own. My collection slowly grew: Phil Collins' Hits, Genesis' Turn It On Again, other stuffs - Michael Jackson's Thriller, Best Of The Police, some Toto, and more - which I didn't listen to nearly as much. Since my first decade, I've grown less obsessed with video games and tech as I've grown more interested in both music and film. Thus, last year when I discovered I'm not much of a [computer] programmer, I decided I'm a film composer. That's my primary career goal and focus now. My favorites? James Horner's A Beautiful Mind and Bicentennial Man and Searching For Bobby Fischer (his Magnum Opus, what people know him for, is James Cameron's Titanic); Michael Giacchino's LOST and The Incredibles and Up (Up won him most every film score award of 2009, Oscar to Grammy and more); Hans Zimmer's The Dark Knight and Sherlock Holmes (2009) and Inception; too many others. Therefore, as video games have been my primary obsession (to an extreme) since I was introduced through Rare's Donkey Kong Country and Acclaim's Batman Forever (as well as the SNES port of NBA JAM) as a baby, I've also always appreciated video game music. Love Koji Kondo and Marty O'Donnell and Dave Wise and Kenji Yamamoto and... Vigilante's Beneath The Surface, an instrumental smooth jazz solo(s)-focused extension of the classic Aquatic Ambience theme from Donkey Kong Country 1, is my favorite OCremix. BLiNd's Jade Catacombs and BigGiantCircles' Nova Siberia also come to mind. I'm not much of a noob; I've submitted a few mixes these past few years, and my latest - Jolly Bowser's Road, a piano medley sorta mix - got good marks. (as fer my older ones....) I figured I oughtta finally formally introduce myself. Apologies for being too thorough. I'm very interested in directing an OCR album/project soon. I agree with Emunator's kind advice: that I oughtta get my name out there a little more before I try to rally an album team and community remixer interest. So I'll put up a couple ol' tracks o' mine in the Workshop to see what y'all think soon. Thanks! Love everybody here, OCR rocks!
  4. Wow, thanks! Yeah, I love music; I study film scores 'cause that's what I wanna do: compose and conduct orchestral for movies. Video game's are jus' a lifelong obsession, so naturally I'm exposed to the greatness that is music in games. :)

  5. After hearing this mix, I don't know if I can call Phendrana my favorite theme anymore.
  6. I caught that the whisper was the 23rd Psalm (I've been raised a Christian; I'm a LOST geek, remember Mr. Eko? Anyway...) I knew there was something hauntingly familiar about those guitar phrases in the fifth minute. Now I know where from for certain. Donkey Kong Country was my first video game. Aquatic Ambience has pretty much always been my favorite theme from the soundtrack. So it's fair to call this mix my absolute favorite OCremix of all time, especially in how many times I've listened to it as compared to every other excellent remix in my collection. Beneath The Surface, lost things lie at the soul of the sea. This song is soaring through a storm of solace; recalling all the depressing disappointment of your life, but failing to summon tears, you only close your eyes and wince as if pinched by years past. Regret hides behind fear of the unknown; life is a love and hate relationship with the universe. Beneath The Surface, the scars are deeper; bad memories more fervent than the good. But the good is still there, and everywhere, so you never lose sight of all importance. Refreshed by this piece, you hold on to hope and survive to thrive. This song obliterates oxymorons and clears conundrums, it simplifies death and destruction with love and life by embodying them in a soothing sweet sorrow. I also leave it on loop as I struggle to fall asleep. Released from prison after life behind bars, an old man in a movie (I will not mention the movie for this could be seen as a spoiler) narrates: "I saw an automobile once when I was a kid, but... now, they're everywhere! The world went and got itself in a big, damn hurry..." Yes we have. (here's the scene, check it out) "This is your life and it is ending one minute at a time." -Fight Club. Better make the most of it. "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, old time is still a'flying. And this same flower that smiles today, tomorrow will be dying."
  7. This is great, I like it a lot. I think it's finished, but that's your call. I'm greatly interested in collaborating with somebody on here so that I can learn how to make my music better...
  8. The Course Unreal definitely earned that one extra vote. Seriously, it's really nice, I like it.
  9. The following is my work, and secured as such by a Creative Commons License. For more info regarding your rights with this piece, PM me. Thanks and enjoy. __________________________ "Knitting Time" Days by hours and minutes by seconds, passes time with splendid wonder. Every stitch an ounce of thought, many rows some pounds of pondering. With great care, hands have beckoned; waves of stitches, a web of thoughts, they all concur like lightning and thunder. If you live everyday to its fullest -as if it were your very last- someday you'll be proven right. Tragedy not that life ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it. We've all been birthed with such great purpose, to wonderful lifetimes made for living. Shame when breath is only sustenance, we go on to live but for nothing. Years by months and weeks by days, days by hours and minutes by moments: we shall leave none to spare, for just as naked trees lack fruit, life without living is much too bare. Luxuries that fulfill our time here inevitably end up depriving us of it. Millenia by centuries and decades by years, months by weeks and days by hours, all the seconds of every minute no more than faded memories. Thought per thought and stitch per stitch, a knitted scarf is nothing more; Stitch per stitch and thought per thought, ideas in flocks like leaves in fall; a world of wonders all we've got, so much beauty, all in all.
  10. I'd like to contribute to a film's musical score.
  11. Thanks for all the info; I've completed a Remix of the Temple from Zelda 2: Adventure of Link, as well as the stage from Super Smash Bros. Melee. If OCRemix doesn't accept my submission for it, how else might I send it to you? I'm sorry it wasn't on the list, and if it isn't quite what you were looking for, I'll pick one from the list. Thanks, nintendude794 P.S.: I just kinda wanted to point out that I'm nintendude794, not "NIntendude764". Thanks for giving me this opportunity.
  12. Just one more question before I get started: Can you give me an estimate of how fast it should be, perhaps comparing the speed you want to famous Movie themes or well known songs? Thanks, nintendude794 P.S.: How long is your video? Should the tempo be constant or can I change the speed a couple times?
  13. If there's anything I can think of in return (I don't much care for you to pay for this; I enjoy the work), you could promote me, my Remix(es), and my Youtube for a short time, maybe in the credits of your video. If you click on my nickname in my signature, it's a link to my Youtube. Thanks, nintendude794 P.S.: Sorry about the mix up, and maybe I'm wrong, but I do believe there was a level in Mario 64 entitled "Jolly Roger Bay", with the same music as the level "Dire, Dire Docks".
  14. How and where are you having your podcast hosted online? Does it cost anything? Thanks, nintendude794
  15. Can you think of any Nintendo themes that I could play, slightly slowed down and peaceful? Here's a list of my ideas: -Underwater Theme (Super Mario Bros. 1) -Underwater Theme (Super Mario World) -Bomb-omb Battlefield (Super Mario 64) -Jolly Roger Bay (Super Mario 64) -Star Festival (Super Mario Galaxy) -Beware the Forest's Mushrooms (Super Mario RPG) -Game Over Theme (The Legend of the Zelda) -Fairy's Theme/Fountain (Zelda Franchise; otherwise known as the File Select Theme) -[Mysterious] Forest (Zelda: A Link to the Past; I'd arrange this one, since I don't already know how to play it) -Guessing Game House (Zelda: Link to the Past; I'd have to arrange this, but it's not too difficult, so don't worry about that) -Kakariko Village (Zelda: Link to the Past; this is actually sound like it'd work great) -Zelda's Lullaby (Zelda Franchise; hopefully the viewers don't fall asleep) -Inside A House (Ocarina of Time) -Hyrule Castle Courtyard (Ocarina of Time; this would work well) -Lon Lon Ranch (Ocarina of Time; would work good, but require little arrangement) -Lost Woods (Ocarina of Time) -Song of Storms (Ocarina of Time) -Title Theme (Zelda: Wind Waker; little arrangement needed) -Graaandma/Family Theme (Zelda: Wind Waker; peaceful Clarinet solo, and I can actually play the Clarinet) -Inside the Pirate Ship (Zelda: Wind Waker; requires little arrangement) -Wind God's Song (Zelda: Wind Waker; arrangement) -Aril's Theme (Zelda: Wind Waker; arrangement) -Midna's Desperate Hour (Zelda: Twilight Princess) -Ordon Village (Zelda: Twilight Princess) -Falbi's House (Zelda: Twilight Princess) -Instruction in the Way of the Sword (Zelda: Twilight Princess) -Shop (Twilight Princess; slowed down) -And much, much more! If you like any of these, let me know which ones and I'll get started. If none of these appeal to you I'll list themes from several other franchises. Thanks for the opportunity, and I look forward to your response.
