FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS: http://www.box.net/shared/0zu4kqsc9f (remix of Doopliss Encounter and Doopliss Battle) Originals: DOOPLISS ENCOUNTER:
DOOPLISS BATTLE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTdlLqwQlBU Hello, I'm new to the forums. My name is Dreyfus. I stayed up from 3:00 in the morning to 5:00 writing this. It's my first remix, so I figured the best place to get critique would be OverClocked ReMix. I'm hoping you guys would be able to help me improve this. As stated above, this is a remix of both Doopliss themes from Paper Mario 2: The Thousand-Year Door. I was getting bored working on my re-orchestration of Twilight Trail, so I decided to do the Doopliss themes, but really in the end wrote more of a remix than a re-orchestration (and that's an understatement). It was originally going to be a remix of the Doopliss Encounter and Dimentio theme from Super Paper Mario, but I wound up using Doopliss' Battle music instead. I highly recommend comparing this to the originals, just because if you listen to it on its own you might not catch the remixed melody. The music when Mario encounters Doopliss is very repetitive and ambient, so I had to take just a few notes and turn them into a full-fledged song. So it sound like I've been pretty liberal with the melody, but if you pay close attention, you'll see that, actually, most of it is the same notes, just in a different rhythm. The music when Mario battles Doopliss, though, should be obvious when it comes in. Does anybody know where I could find a bell sound set? The best I have are the Tubular Bells, which just don't sound "bell" enough to represent the Creepy Steeple bell. Wrote this from scratch tonight in Sibelius. All instruments (except for the Euphonium, Bongos, and Tubular Bells) are sampled via Garritan Personal Orchestra. As a side note, the bongos sound a bit MIDI-ish; Sibelius' bongo samples are very strange, there isn't much I can do... Also, I think there's reverb missing from this song... It feels like the notes are ending differently than they did on Sibelius itself. INSTRUMENTATION: Woodwinds: 1 Piccolo, 2 Oboes (single part), 1 Bassoon, 1 Contrabassoon Brass: 1 Euphonium Strings: 2 Violin Sections, 1 Viola Section, 1 Cello Section, 1 Contrabass Section Percussion & Keyboards: 1 Timpani, 1 Snare Drum, 1 Crash Cymbal, 2 Bongos, 1 Tubular Bell, 1 Harpsichord, 1 Pipe Organ (no pedals), 1 Accordion Hope you enjoy! Thank you for taking the time to listen!
