  1. I was given the great pleasure to make music for a fun online game called "Wind of Luck." When they brought me on board, they said "we want pirate inspired tavern/pub music that will span the world over." Suffice it to say, I didn't have much experience in this style, but I busted out my guitar, mandolin, and every celtic sample I had and got to work! The result is a 17 track album of music that I'm quite proud of and I hope you guys will enjoy it as well! You can listen to the full album for free at this nice !If you like it enough, you can buy it for $4 over at BANDCAMP! Ultimately, I just hope you enjoy the music. Know that this community is responsible for helping me gain the skills necessary to do this in the first place; for that I am most assuredly in your debt!
  2. You had me, and then you lost me by not using Comic Sans all the way through the video. Seriously guys, a missed opportunity !
  3. NOTE: I DO NOT want the more traditional Dubstep sound, only recommendations of other artists who have music similar to his heavy 4-on-tha-floor style stuff.
  4. Forgot to post this when it went up: Enjoy!
  5. Just released a couple of hours ago.Enjoy!
  6. *****UPDSATE: THE JOB HAS BEEN FILLED***** I have a piece of sheet music for piano that I need a pianist to make into a midi file for me. The turnaround time on this will need to be quick but it IS A PAYING JOB. If you have this ability and are interested, please let me know by emailing me at brian@tweexmusic.com.
  7. Hello Everyone! So, I'm apart of a team that's creating a web series called "Abigail"; I'm composing the music, designing the sound, and taking care of the ADR as well as other various sound things! Anyway, We're a couple of episodes in so far and I wanted to start posting them here for you guys to see. Enjoy! Newest Episode: Previous Episodes: Episode 2 - Standby Me
  8. AWESOME. I'll keep an eye out for it! And I'm with the rest of you guys; I'm finding it VERY hard to resist the urge to re-activate my account !
  9. Mate, I'm truly touched. I'm incredibly happy that you were pleased with the album. The sense of nostalgia for the game is almost overwhelming for me and I have to stop listening to keep from crying . Seriously, thank you for the amazingly kind words!
  10. When you do, put the link in here so I can pimp it! @Zeal: I'm glad to hear the FFXI fans/players are enjoying it !
  11. I'm really glad to hear that you all are enjoying the album!
  12. IT'S LIVE! Download it NOW! www.landofvanadiel.com
  13. No, it's not possible for a license to fail because they were unable to get a hold of the original publisher to gain their consent. Copyright law states that as long as the royalties are paid to the publisher, ANY song may be covered or parodied by any person with/without the consent of said publisher then sold commercially (i.e. sold in an album).
  14. Just a quick reminder, "The Land of Vana'diel" is releasing in just under 13 hours. It'll be live at 12:00am EST Wednesday morning. www.landofvanadiel.com
  15. You people are far too kind. Thank you !
  16. The "issue" here is that these kinds of projects usually fall into a strange gray area when it comes to whether it's "legal or not". While I can't speak for the two other projects you've seen that are similar to the FF6 Kickstarter campaign, what I can say is that in many cases (if not most), the "problems" that arise are often due to the visibility of the project. Or in other words, how popular the project is in the eyes of the public. Since OCR ended up generating 4-5 times the amount of money that they had been expecting, that would catch the eyes of the public and raises questions from the publishers (in this case, Square Enix). However, since this is a gray area, each situation is different and is up for individual interpretations and negotiations. That being the case, the request from DJP to try and hold off from speculation of what SE has said or what's being done in the negotiations is actually a very reasonable request as each situation like this can vary greatly.
  17. If the proper royalties are paid, a musical artist can cover, remix, or parody and subsequently sell ANY piece of existing music that they want to regardless of whether or not the original artist "wants" it to be done. To require "permission" to do a cover, remix, etc. would effectively mean that music would be protected against parody or criticism. Had this ruling not been made, people like Weird Al Yankovic would have never been able to do some of the fantastic work that he's done. Interestingly enough, this ruling was made in no small part due to Weird Al's involvement in the issue!
  18. I'm extremely pleased to see that you guys are looking forward to it. I'm beyond excited to finally be able to release this to the world!
  19. I've been working on a project for about 3 years now and today I FINALLY announced it. I've created a remix album of music from Final Fantasy XI(11) called "The Land of Vana'diel." The album will be released on August 1st, 2012 (just a couple weeks away) and will be completely free to download for everyone. I've released a teaser website with a preview video of the music. Feel free to check it out! http://landofvanadiel.com To put it simply, OCR is the place that I came to nigh on 10 years ago to enjoy video game remixes. If it wasn't for this community and the high standards that the staff hold the remixers to, I would have never learned music production and remixing like I have. Suffice it to say, this album wouldn't exist if not for this wonderful community. For that, I am eternally in your debt. Thank you. -Humbly and gratefully- Tweex
  20. I created this blog and released it earlier today. There has been some great discussion between some OCR members already, but I wanted to go ahead and post it here and hear what you all think! http://tweexgaminggeek.com/blog-has-technology-hurt-music/
  21. It's been a while, but I finally have a new track ! It's called "The Life of a Gamer". http://tweexgaminggeek.com/video-the-life-of-a-gamer/
  22. Wow, I haven't posted anything here in years. What they hell! I've been doing a LOT of folk style music for another project I'm working on when I re-discovered the Zelda OoT Market theme. Decided it might be fun to folk it up. This is an early WIP and I'm wondering if it's worth making into a full on remix rather than just a cover (which it is). Enjoy.

  23. When you sell a single through a company like CD Baby or Tunecore, they distribute it everywhere for you.
  24. New song about Angry Birds just released!
