  1. You could perhaps class his later work with Arnie Roth as being in the realms of classical music.
  2. I'm not sure how many people have been following this, but I thought I'd post it in here anyway. This is awesome news in my opinion. Not only has it further promoted Mr. Uematsu's work, but it may prove to be a very important step up of his music being recognised within the popular classical music scene in times to come. I know very well of Classic FM's often dogmatic and purist view of classical music, so this entry may very well change things up a bit!
  3. Hey, C&C! Thanks! I recently purchased some new monitors so I intend to give this a damn good mix on them very soon, and will get an update posted... eventually
  4. Sorry this is so latecoming! Thank you very much for the feedback! I haven't touched this remix in a couple weeks; I intentionally wanted to let it ferment and let my mind/ears rest for a while, but now coming back I can see this is still very weak. Both of your bits of feedback are very useful, so thank you very much. I will restart work on it very shortly.
  5. Thanks a LOT for the detailed feedback! Very much appreciated. I will work more on this over the next few days with your criticism in mind, and maybe post up an update. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys. I was wondering if some of you would be kind enough to give my WIP remix of 'Auriel's Ascension' (with parts of 'Reign Of The Septims') by Jeremy Soule a listen and offer some critical feedback. It is currently unmastered and the mix may need a bit of work, but thus far I think that's all that's outstanding, but I gladly welcome feedback for anything. Thanks. [Direct Link]
  7. ^Don't worry, they said they'll be coming back next year for a 25th Anniversary gig!
  8. I was there! Holy moly that was an amazing night. O_O
  9. Hey guys. So my band just released their first EP. Just a little something for people while we work on the album. I'd love to know what you guys think. Cheers, guys. Personnel: Ben Steed / Caspar Byron - Programming, keys, guitars, bass, vocals. Rob Gilbank / Aegis Mutton - Programming, keys, guitars, bass, vocals.
  10. Ugh. I searched as well. Obviously I didn't search enough. My bad.
  11. I don't know about you, but I love music. Like, a lot. And I generally find that a lot of the best music is free. This isn't in every case, but for some at least. So this thread is for people to share free album/EP/single downloads for others to hear. To start this thread off, here's an album that I'm in love with and have been for a while. Check it out. And others here. Now, share away!
  12. Thank you very much!! I'm glad you're feeling it. Yeah the vocals are all mine, but the drums are sample kits. But the whole album is a mix of samples and live. Glad you like it, mate! Thank you.
  13. I've wanted to do this for quite some time now. Hopefully I can get round to doing it soon. Will let you know.
