I’m Ryott. I’ve always had some interest in making music, but never got around to trying it out. I first heard about OC ReMix from one of Totalbiscuit’s Patch Notes videos. The song played at the end was called “Pursued by the Subordinate of Ignorant Sin” by Mikeaudio. I thought it was a fantastic song and started looking for more remixes to listen to. Yet, I never visited the site until recently after listening to Dan Floyd of Extra Credits recommending that viewers check it out.
I’m curious about all sorts of things and I have a desire to create everything. I’m mostly a writer and draftsman at heart. Never played an instrument, but I’ve tried to learn FL Studio. It’s a bit overwhelming for me, but I may need to give it more practice before I learn the workflow.
Favorite kinds of music include electronic and chiptune soundtracks. I really like the soundtracks from games like Bastion and Dust: An Elysian Tail as well as Crypt of the Necrdoancer and Cave Story. They’re memorable and carry an emotional impact within the context of their respective worlds.
As for making music for OC ReMix, I’m not sure where to start. If any of you have advice, I’d love to hear it.
