  • Biography
    I am 22 years old, live in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and I have not much musical talent, but I enjoy music A LOT.
    I can make mash-ups with my sense of rhythm, but I can also do vocals...Death Metal vocals D: I can't really sing, as my voice is a bit...rough. When I sing, I can hear how bad I am. When I growl in Death Metal fashion, I hear the true power of my voice. I actually like Power Metal, so this is a disappointment. I speak of metal here, but I can't help but take my remixes in the direction of hip-hop or techno D:> Oh well!

  1. Well, something of an intro this time, but meh, still far from finished http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/295289
  2. hmm... I haven't done much more with my slower hip-hop sounding remix of the Ice Cap theme, so perhaps I should work on something in a genre I prefer? Well, that time has come, where I can finally make the guitar sound "good" and make a metal remix of something. Unfortunately, it looks like it's going to the hardcore/trashy side of metal Meh, as long as you can headbang to it, I'm happy. Anyway, this is severely far from complete, being only one minute, but I pretty much know what I am going to do with/add to this. I just wanted to post up a "demo" to give everyone the general mood of this re
  3. Actually, I made this because of all the rage of the newer Sonic game where you could only play as Sonic... *grrrrr* Aside from that, I thought it amusing myself, and I couldn't believe I recorded the whole vocal without laughing. It's kinda ridiculous. I actually thought hard about it after making it and thought, "There is no way Robotnik could ever sound like that!" It's fun to pretend though, I guess. I am actually trying to get together an actual band, or at least half a one (just me and someone who plays a guitar), to make both original songs and remixes for OCR. I have very real-soundin
  4. This is a remix I made when I was just learning how to use my remixing programs. I know the quality is horrible, but it was based off of a midi and nothing else. Of course, the vocals is me, but I'd have to get a real guitar and a better microphone before actually making something submittable here. Also, don't ask for the lyrics, as they contains words I can't post here if you know what I mean. I'm just posting this as a concept for now, but I will return to it when I get more time, and more importantly, more money... MP3 here Well, as for what inspired it: I hate Sonic. I like the other chara
  5. Such... words of encouragement! =D I am so.. uplifted by this, actually, but I find I work best when I'm in a good mood. Everyone's got their own style, I suppose. While my style is typically happy and often cute, I tend to not be able to break away from a vibe once I get into it. But you are right, maybe this depressive vibe is the perfect work to support my depressive mood, which honestly just comes from the time of the year. In October I tend to be the most sensitive to the world around me, including my already intense sensitivity to the negative emotions of others, although I can't imagine
  6. Err, a small amount of difference, you'll hear what I did, but really I'm not rushing it--I just want to make sure I'm still going in the right direction here. I just don't want to destroy a remix by adding too much to it. I guess I'll call it WIP6, but it may be a while before I go any further with this... I've been feeling down lately. Call it depression if you like, I'm just so low right now. MP3 Here
  7. The bass intro was just a bit long, but... when that synth came in... eargasm to the max! Dude, I think you may wanna replace some of the BG synth with electric guitars, but that's totally up to you. Honestly, as bumpy as the beginning sounds, the mix as a whole is turning out to be quite awesome. DO keep going. Don't give up. Also, don't FORCE it. You don't have to work on this at any timed rate, or anything dumb like that. Just wait for a brilliant idea to come naturally. That's kinda how my Ice Cap remix is evolving, speaking of which part of the bassline around the start somewhere made me
  8. Wow, that altered pitch at about 20 some seconds... I'm not gonna lie to you, it was unintended. I didn't try to fix it though because I liked the way it sounded But, you say "longer"? Hmm, I'll see, but towards the end, I feel as though that "beat" will have to change anyway, but still it stays as hip-hop (ish). Meh, I didn't even realize how much I took out from the previous work (yes, I actually built WIP5 from WIP4!). BUT, the re-working of the drums is still not done here. I'm still learning at this as well. Lol 1:22 was intended to hint, or else... imagine if it WASN'T there. Boring, r
  9. For one, the title is now changed. The new title: Cold Ending (that probably won't be final, though) Two... I want to know if I did at least HALF a good job making it dark at any part. I redid SOME of the drums, but my main focus was TRYING to give the remix a different (dark, actually) sound. I'll do more to the beat than the simple loop you hear, and change the sounds in it as well, so don't worry to mention it. I also may have this split as an orchestral mix later, but that's when I get way more advanced with this. Remember I've only been doing this (remixing/remaking) for about two months
  10. I don't know where to go either ( did I say that already?). I was thinking of going even further as to possibly emulate the style of a song/artist with each of my remixes. Because it makes sense, I would actually try to emulate the style of the song I think I mentioned before that sounds like this (Janet Jackson - "Together Again") Maybe make it even more "believable" that her song was based from this... Wow, a year, and I thought it was you. I remember you mentioning trying to get on OCR with that mix, which I say was rather nice to me. I would really love to hear something from 8 bit Sonic
  11. Yes, exactly what I thought of it, is that it is a great start. So, are you suggesting after what I have here so far, that I extend it and do away with the melody a bit and mess around a bit? You know, deviate in such a manner that many mixes on this site do. I really don't know where to go at this time, but I tend to work on a remix only when I get a sudden idea with which I can experiment. and jajaja I thought the same thing of that second act, but still I absolutely love the music, and apparently it seems tha possibly Janet Jackson did as well (ever heard "Together Again"?). Really, I thou
  12. If it's not apparent by now, I'm a hardcore oldskool Sonic fan. Anyway, this remix is NOT so hardcore, but in fact kinda cute sounding. Then again what was the bridge theme anyway? Well, I had a concept here of "building" a bridge theme (please excuse how corny that was) up until the end. Ironically enough, shortly after starting on this, I found out that a fellow youtuber had one titled "Bridge Under Construction". I lol'd at that, especially after hearing just how different his remix was. As for my remix, I'm not nearly done... I don't think I am... what's this, my third project? I better sl
  13. Oh... too long? I was trying to make it "suspenseful"..yar. A build up into the beat.. I see what you mean. Then again I did mention I was going to do more drum work, so good time to mess with the build up as well, I suppose. A lot of people love the original track, and I'm pretty sure that in order to make a "bad" remix of the Ice Cap theme, one would have to be doing it on purpose XD So... that's TWO people that say the kick needs to be stronger. Wow, that's actually a relief, because I thought it would be too strong =O As for my own original composing... chee, shouldn't be too hard... perha
  14. Okay, wow. I knew there were plenty of trancy remixes out there already, and that's why I am actually unsure about this. BUT I am wondering if I somehow took this in a "darker" direction, how would that be? I noticed a trend in Ice Cap remixes is that they all sound either "nice" or "upbeat" in some way. Maybe if I somehow made it "dark" (industrial??), I could definitely be different. It's just too bad my style is almost always upbeat/nice. As for the string-like instruments... I thought it sounded rather nice that way, but... meh, maybe I'll see about completely re-working that track. As fo
  15. Okay, never mind what happened to the first three, but if you must know check out my youtube channel: Constromlie Anyway, I'm just trying to make this... like, I dunno, nice, I guess. Trance is nice, right?? Maybe this doesn't really qualify as "trance", but what would I know? I listen to metal most of the time =P Meh, take a listen if you wish, and I will probably be doing more to the drums and the end section than anything else from this point.
