  1. Nothing like an anniversary round to bring some old skool remixers out the of the woodwork. Been a long time since I've tried my hand at anything game-related, I'll see if I can get something put together!
  2. Hi! I'd like my name on here changed to Troyificus, please! Does that also change it on the track I have posted as well?
  3. @Souperion this source was covered on the Terranigma album, in case you weren't aware and wanted to hear a different interpretation of the track!
  4. I've submitted a track I was working on for a discarded OCR album. It's not totally finished, but it'll do.
  5. Voted! Nice work everyone, it felt great to be contributing to the compo scene again
  6. I may actually be able to get something small in for this one.
  7. Hey all, I've decided to quit the project. It's not a decision I made lightly, but unfortunately over the past few weeks the whole thing has started to become more like a burden than anything else. We've had another person quit, which is essentially what made my mind up for me. Since the whole Jeremy Soule revelation there's been a feeling like the whole thing is tainted, and that's become more apparent as people have distanced themselves from it. No artist that I've contacted to do the cover art wants to touch this thing; some of them have specifically stated it's because of the Soule connection. It's becoming depressing. I'm going to offer up to the project to anyone who wants to take it on. If you're interested drop me a DM and we'll discuss. I'm sorry to drop this out of the blue, but I feel it's best for my own mental wellbeing to do this.
  8. Heya @brink-of-time. Well to be honest, nothing's been happening. I've been shopping around for artists to do some cover art but no-one's interested. At this point, I'm seriously considering just cancelling the whole project and suggesting that everyone who's completed their track to submit it to the site independently. There's been a few more people pull out of the project and there's a few people still in limbo, so the album has effectively stalled. My taste for this project was soured when we had all the drama earlier this year, but I thought we could power on through. However interest has died off pretty much completely, and I don't want to force something through the door that doesn't want to go. I'll speak to those still working, but if they're not interested in moving forward then I'll formally close this thing down.
  9. Well, they're not, really. We've lost a few more people from the project (no shade being thrown here, I made the announcement so people could make their own choices) which brings us down to about 10 tracks. 4 of those are finished, 1 completely done (shout out to @theconsoloist for being the first 100% completed track!) 2 pending sign-off by their respective producers and the other (yours, @brink-of-time) with @Chimpazilla for mastering. I'm expecting a few others to be finished this month as well. Currently looking for an artist to do the album art, if anyone's interested in taking that up or if anyone has any suggestions who I could reach out to.
  10. Lava Reef's music is my absolute favourite of any Sonic OST, and having this gradually building from chilled-out up to a *slightly* more frenetic interpretation is just beautiful. Excellent work, Eladar.
  11. So I guess it's time for an update, huh? The majority of people have gotten back to me regarding my statement and the majority of those people have decided to stay on, so the project will continue as is. I won't be actively recruiting anyone else, but will accept anyone who wishes to join. As such this album will likely be a single 'disc' affair rather than a double, but at this point I'm just looking to get it finished and out the door, so to speak. A few people asked that I make it abundantly, 100% clear that anyone who is participating in this project does not support or condone the actions of Jeremy Soule, alleged or otherwise, and that the content is a celebration of the Secret of Evermore soundtrack as an art-form and nothing else. In happier news, we've got our first finished track! @about:blank has finished his Fire Eyes remix which has now been passed over to @Chimpazilla for mastering. Massive thanks for getting that finished so quickly, Chris So, in closing, things are little bit sombre here at PLT HQ (which is just me now...) but we're going to soldier on regardless. Thank you to everyone who has agreed to stay on, and thank you to everyone who is taking the time to read this message. *EDIT* Well, I should probably read all my messages before making a forum post because we do in fact have TWO finished tracks! @Manji has finished his Elephant Graveyard remix as well! Big thank you to you as well, Chris (two Chris', what are the odds?!).
  12. Simply a case of not being in my news sphere, I guess.
  13. STATEMENT It has recently been brought to our attention that certain accusations have been made against Jeremy Soule, the composer for Secret of Evermore. The accusations came to light long before we decided to tackle Secret or Evermore, however for whatever reason neither Dai nor myself were aware of it at the time. Since we were made aware of this information there's been a lot conversation between Dai and myself, with some input also being sought from @djpretzel. djp pointed me towards his statement attached to THIS POST he made back in April and has confirmed that OCR will be happy to release and promote the album. My outlook on the situation is similar to that expressed in the post linked above. I do not condone the actions of anyone seeking to abuse another in any setting. That should go without saying, but sadly in this day and age it probably should be spelled out. In the case of this album I am celebrating the music of the game, not necessarily the composer himself. Separating the art from the artist is always a dicey subject to tackle, but I am personally OK with carrying on with the project. Unfortunately, PLT creator and my assistant-director for this album @Drawn by Dai has decided to step down from the project in light of this information. He asked that I include the following statement in this post: I completely understand and respect his decision in this and it leads me to my next point of action. It's entirely possible that there other people now involved with this project who are also unaware of the controversy regarding the games composer. As such I will be contacting everyone individually asking them if they wish to continue on the album. If anyone wishes to leave them I will completely understand.
