  1. Hey, so Some years ago I was faced with the unique challenge of scoring an RPG project for the first time in my life. My partner for this project, a Canadian gamer named Troy, helped me to craft some truly memorable tunes. What I have here is a chronicle of our efforts toward the final boss theme, the fight against the great dragon ADIRA and the demon king BELIAS. I hope you like the sound of our work. Please do tell if you find it interesting. http://soundcloud.com/dmguillotine/sets/adira-a-final-boss-battle-in/ -Dave G.
  2. Alright, I have an update where I incorporate the Victory theme, further employ the star acquisition motif, and after some exploration suggest the possibility of transitioning into part of the game's end credits theme. (bump) The piece has more than doubled in length now, and opinions on the new material would be great.
  3. jnWake: Yeah, this is a sequenced attempt. Although it pleases me you felt the need to ask. By the ornaments you mean the rolled chords and the star theme's trill, for example? I can surely experiment with the dynamics to get them sounding more real. Because the source is, as you reminded, very limited, I had considered maybe creating a medley with some other tunes from the game. At the same time I feel that's a cop-out, and I'd like to take this theme as far as it can possibly go without breaking the established mood of the arrangement. How I can avoid staleness I'm not sure... ...oh there'
  4. Hey all. I have no title for this yet, and it's in its early stages. But, the idea I had was to take the normal battle theme from Super Mario RPG (I'm sure some of you can recall this monotonous ditty) and reshape it into something completely different. I have a feeling I'm on to something, but I'd appreciate some feedback to determine whether I should keep going. Version 1: http://soundcloud.com/dmguillotine/smrpg-battle-piano-rendition MOST RECENT Version http://soundcloud.com/dmguillotine/smrpg-battle-v2-piano The thing is, even though this theme in its original form is annoying, I had a
  5. I've given the whole album near to two listens, and I'm enamored by the results. I recall hearing early versions of some of these, so it's really cool experiencing them fully realized. The Heavenly Integer brings back memories, good ones at that. Wealth of Knowledge is relaxing and deliciously gamey, reminding me of countless villages and libraries from back in the day. I love Need Insurance, it brings Chrono Trigger to mind among other fight scenes. Excellent stuff, I don't have a blog or anything like that but I'll recommend it to my gamer friends. Glad to have this in my library.
  6. I was enamored by this piece from the get-go. I enjoyed it thoroughly despite unfamiliarity with the source, and that's when I know I'm not just being biased and sentimental. Beautiful vocal work from both of you, chemistry and finesse in each line of text. To Josh I have to give my highest congratulations, because this arrangement floored me. Careful and diverse orchestration, power and subtlety, it's all there in this mix. In my book this was a fantastic, successful realization of a great concept, and I tip my hat to you, Danielle and Ryan for a gorgeous work of art. I'll be giving it many
  7. Gorgeous work, guys. I'm a big fan of the source and I'm impressed by the synergy and honesty of this mix. Such a beautiful sound, really. Glad this got through!
  8. Kate, I have not yet played Xenogears (though I want to someday), and I had no familiarity with this track until looking it up after hearing your mix. And in spite of not knowing the source tune, after listening to this twice it's easily become one of my favorite OCRemixes of all time. I love this every bit as much as Star Salzman's "Pillar of Salt" - and as remixes go, that one ranks very high on my scale! This is at once a relaxing, breathtaking, and mystifying arrangement. And I'm sincerely impressed at your great talent, to have played all of those instruments so expertly. From here on
  9. Anybody still not done and still need liturgical-type vocals? I offered my help on this project years ago but now I'm more capable of actually doing it. My SN was Zolborn then, and now it's Karth - and I'm a better singer than before, having extended my falsetto range a good bit. E-mail me at dmguillot@gmail.com if you're in need, or even if you're just considering it.
  10. I've sent you an e-mail, respond when you can. This sounds like a very captivating prospect, and whether I end up as a composer for it or not I'd love to play this game.
  11. Totally amazing stuff. You're extremely talented and it would be a crime if you didn't continue to do what you're doing. Not to fuel your ego or anything. >_>
  12. O_O To ambient, I'd like to offer my maddest props for an incredibly danceable mix with copious amount of variety. As DJP said, this is a really fun mix. I could listen to it for hours without getting bored; in fact, I think I will. Catchy doesn't begin to describe it, it's too delicious. I thought the mixing was done well, a very good blend of instruments, and I loved the way you incorporated the voice. Splendid job. More on the voice: DA, I don't use net acronyms much...that said, OMFG. Your vocals came out better on this one than I've heard them before. Very clean, it gets the real qualit
  13. If at all possible, I would really like it if you could change my name from "Zolborn" to "Karth"--Karth is my typical online handle, and it's the name I identify with online. Thanks in advance!
  14. Of the David'n'Phil who did Rock the World, I'm the David. I'd like to follow SwordBreaker's example and give response to what each voter said about our mix, because it seems like the proper thing to do in exchange for a victory. All opinions matter to me, so I'd like to say the following: 1. "- Got a nice almost Chris Isaak sound in the vocals - Vocals slightly overpower the backing track. Hard to hear the background especially during chorus - I like the creativity of the verse's rhythm and melody - Maniacal laughter is a bit creepy." a. I love it when people compare my singing to people
  15. I'm incredibly grateful to have done so well in this. The first time Phil and I entered a VOCR, it went over poorly. So I guess it's vindicating in a sense that so many votes came our way. This was a lot of fun for me, and I hope everyone else involved enjoyed it as well. May VOCR live on--this is a great tradition! =D
