  1. Thanks for the feedback! I guess the augmented fifth was an unconventional choice there, but I wanted to convey a sense of “airy wonderment”. Maybe could have foreshadowed it a bit to make it less of a surprise. Hope you’re doing well.
  2. If I wrote the soundtrack of a traditional JRPG, the airship theme might sound like this. What if there's no airship? Of course there's an airship.
  3. One of my favorites on the album for sure. Great jazzy/hip-hop vibe that would be at home in a not-so-serious anime spinoff of our beloved franchise. The lyrics brilliantly straddle the line between witty and immature. Love it!
  4. I'm not usually a fan of medleys, but this one gets a pass due to its amazing execution and interweaving of decades of themes that never sounds forced. I'm especially glad that Sam preserved the call-and-answer component of the original overworld theme, as that usually gets dropped in arrangements of the theme.
  5. hey guy love your mixed just one wish is SUPER SUPER justice to the song hope to see more from you like that!

      Thanks a lot!  :-)  I have lots of other arrangements on my YouTube channel (docnanomusic), some of which are in a similar style.

  6. I'd also like to acknowledge the role of critical feedback in the writing of this arrangement. I think it was Theophany that encouraged me to do a substantive rewrite of an earlier version (into which I had already poured several hours of work). But the previous version was confused, with too many ideas vying for the listener's attention. In restarting from scratch after playing around with the themes a bit, I had a much clearer vision for the arrangement, and what emerged was by far a superior product. In other words, don't succumb to the sunk-cost fallacy -- sometimes it's best to start over from a clean slate.
  7. I'm pretty sure I heard this when it was an early-stage WIP a few years back. It made an impression then, and the final version is even better than I'd hoped. Whimsical, fun, light, and with beautiful jazz harmonies to boot. Awesome!
  8. Wow, 2011... has it really been that long since we heard a new remix from Mustin? Love the chill vibe of this mix. I can also relate to the personal story; I have my own vivid memory of playing FF4 into the wee hours of the morning at a friend's house, hunting for where to drop the Key of Magma. It was just that kind of game -- a real high point for the series, in no small part because of fantastic musical themes like this.
  9. Thanks to all for the feedback on our mix! I'm glad we were able to share with you all.
  10. Thanks for the glowing review, DJP... and I still love listening to your old bluegrass-caricature remix of the Bubble Bobble theme. I feel like pointing out that, although this is my 5th posted remix, it was the first one I ever submitted to OCR. In other words, my apologies to all if the production is a little rough!
  11. Awesome. That is how you orchestrate the Metroid title theme.
  12. This is a straight-up cover, not intended for submission or anything. Just for fun. And DAMN, what a fun track this is -- certainly a contender for my favorite FF battle theme. It's pretty close to how I always imagined that the original SNES version sounded. Any feedback on orchestration/mixing is appreciated. Otherwise, enjoy.
  13. I've had it in my head to do a smooth jazz arrangement of Tifa's Theme for a while... now that this exists, I don't have to. Gorgeous, gorgeous treatment of the source, with some tasteful development and improvisation. Great work, folks -- definitely adding it to my FF7 playlist.
  14. Tons of character, and the choice of instruments/style is perfect for the spirit of the source. The change of time signature halfway through was a nice surprise. Love it!
