    Not really much to say. I remix songs just for the heck of it. I've no formal musical training, just an ear for it. So most of what I produce isn't suitable for OCR by any means, whether it be do to poor arranging on my part, or the fact that all I have is Finale (ech, midi). So I'll probably never submit anything to the judging panel.

  1. Sounds like you could almost put the character select theme from Super Mario Bros. 2 in here as well.
  2. It's a great mix, very creative. But it's very disconcerting to hear this particular song, especially in the upbeat, synth style, transposed to a minor key. Not saying it's a bad thing, but it has a very haunting sound to it. Which, I think is ironic given the source material.
  3. It's really happy-go-lucky. Loved the piano intro, too. Great mix so far.
  4. Honestly, if I had never heard the source material, I would never have known that there was original composition in there. It was strung together so seamlessly.
  5. I really think you've hit upon something good there with the voices and the piano. It's light, airy, and it really gives you that sense of mysticism that Zeal was known for. It did sort of cross a line for me with the percussive elements though, and the production quality is lacking. But that first half is beautiful.
  6. I love that swing beat that comes in after the intro. I've never actually played 3D Blast, so this is the first time I've heard the melody. Arceace did a really good job here, though.
  7. That is a gorgeous arrangement of that theme. I love the vibraphone and the bass. And the understated percussion throughout adds the perfect touch.
  8. Oh my gosh! I've been waiting forever to see this mix posted. I loved listening to its evolution in the workshops. And I disagree with Palpable: the piano solo is a nice contradiction to tone down the richness of the rest of the piece.
  9. I enjoyed it. But now y'all got me curious about Childhood: Act 1. Kind of a cruel thing to do to the curious: post the second half but not the first.
  10. I love that. It's got this happy-go-lucky feel to it and the acoustic guitar is great. Can't wait for updates.
  11. When I was a sophomore in high school, I went to a concert. They played a suite called "The Aquarium" by Johan de Meij. Best music ever. It's been stuck in my head ever since.
  12. I think the intro is a bit long, but I love the dance/hip-hop groove to it. Kinda has that tropical vibe to it. The various melodies flow smoothly with each other as well. I think the synth could use some more texture though. A little wobble, a little delay, a bit more with the dynamics. But overall, it made me smile. I like that dark interlude as well at about three minutes as well. It's a nice change up, and keeps it from getting monotonous. The alternation at this point between major and minor modes is really nice as well. The change at 7 minutes feels a little forced, in my opinion--much less smooth than the earlier progressions. And while I'm sure you know this, it ends rather abruptly. You could probably leave it at the seven minute mark and add just a little bit of a redux of the original theme to finish it off.
  13. Okay. First up: I like the delay effect and the bass humming in the background. To tell the truth, it reminds me of Front Mission. I'm not sure it's as drastically different as you're aiming for, though. You might try easing up on the percussion in the latter half--it sounds overly synthesized, and I think that will count against you when you submit. Also, I would try changing up the lead and the choir in the background. I do like how you played with the melody at about the 4 minute mark. But overall, it lacks the sort of personal touch that a great remix needs.
  14. That is beautiful. I love that, especially where the fiddle comes in. I thought Gato's theme was a nice change of pace too. Could stand to be longer, though, maybe go back into the millennial fair theme. But I love that, and excellent recording quality.
  15. I really like this. The soundscape is very reminiscent of the original, but it's still unique. I love the percussion too. Kudos.
