    I love remixing as a side hobby for when I have plenty of free time. Otherwise, I do graphics design, video production, web design and stuff.

    Recently I adopted an ambient, glitch, and complex style, but I have materials for multiple styles. If you need effects processing, drum programming, miscellaneous sound design, or mixing help, feel free to come see me! I'd be happy to help refine the mixing on your song. All I'd ask in return is for you to tell others about me if you liked what I did with you, but only if you want to.

  1. Truly one of his best works! (if you got a ping, there was a temporary bug and the video was unavailable. It's back now, odd...)
  2. I like the chord changes that differentiate the Invincible theme from the usual repetitive nature of the original. The Overworld Theme's melodic contour being changed to fit the uplifting musical mode works really well too! A refreshing take on a classic that actually is exactly what we are looking for when it comes to personalization from the arrangement end. I just wish it didn't fade out.
  3. Loved the odd time signatures! Maintains a similar rhythm throughout but has great dynamics.
  4. We really be out here accidentally submitting sketches. What a mad lad. You wouldn't believe it but I'm not usually a fan of this style. Jordan just does it well so it doesn't matter.
  5. I might return with something more detailed, but the simplest way I think is to take your leitmotif and repeat it in a higher mode. Basically a similar melodic contour on a higher 'key' with the appropriate adjusted chords. This came to mind: This video also talks about using this technique, not necessarily to feel like you're floating, but just as it was used in its time:
  6. After watching this really cool video, I actually felt inspired to go back and rewrite the middle breakdown section to incorporate this theme.
  7. I don't think I could have become who I am today without OCR. You guys helped me develop my character as well as my musical ability.
  8. It's been a long time since I've shared a remix here! Hope you guys like it! Let me know if there's anything you would change. I'll include all the versions I have of it so you can see the progression of how I wrote it as well. It took about 11 hours total of worktime to make this highland/irish/atmospheric arrangement of Artazon Town, meshed with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon's Intro Theme and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky's Time Gear theme! It features instruments like the Modern Harpejji, Highland Harps, and some bell sounds from my Zebra2 soundset FM Variations.

  9. I've always liked the unapologetic dubstep side of Kristina. Good to see this here after having reposted it on Soundcloud ages ago!
  10. This would make both Zelda fans and ordinary music fans happy. Rebecca seems in touch with nature here. It's tough to maintain good pacing without significant percussion!
  11. I was pleasantly amazed at MermaidUnicorn's live take on this song (https://twitch.tv/mermaidunicorn/), so I felt inspired to spend 2 days arranging this classic as a full instrumental. Did I outdo the original? Let me know! Instruments/Libraries used include (but are not limited to): - u-he Zebra2 (many patches from my soundset, 'FM Variations' - https://impactsoundworks.com/product/fm-variations/ ) - Spectrasonics Trilian - Xfer Records Serum - 4Front TruePianos - Impact Soundworks PEARL Concert Grand - Impact Soundworks Juggernaut Cinematic Electronic Scoring Tools --- EDIT: Or there is now a music video for it.
  12. Pacing has always been my toughest enemy, and this ReMix really pulls that off well.
  13. Good to be around! I'm still writing music, not much on remixes lately, but I've been doing a lot of arrangements of iconic songs like "Here Comes the Sun" and "Memory" (Cats).
