  1. Hey, everyone! Late last year I posted some live clips from my VGM/jazz group, The Hard Modes. Since then I've written a bunch of new arrangements for the group that we've been playing locally, and about a month ago we recorded some of our repertoire. I wanted to share the first of the bunch with you--the beloved "Corridors of Time" from Chrono Trigger, written by Yasunori Mitsuda: I never really intended to arrange this tune, especially because it seems like a lot of people cover it (and cover it well!). But, I kept hearing it while I was at MAGFest this year and was infected by the groove so much that I felt like I had to give making something unique a shot. The resulting arrangement is pretty straight forward with the exception of some harmonic variation and the incorporation of 3 additional Chrono Trigger melodies therein. Hope you enjoy, and would love to hear your feedback. Thanks for listening!
  2. Here's a remix I just recently finished of the Kokiri Forest theme from Ocarina of Time. I just had an itching for some latin music. I know the arrangement is quite liberal, but I think it flows well enough. Enjoy the mix! ReMix: "Hey Saria, There's a Fiesta Down in Kokiri Forest" Source Tune:
  3. Want to officially release this on an album with art and such but eh you know don't really have a budget so an unofficial Soundcloud release until I can acquire the rights to this bad boy. Do I need to mention Soundcloud's terrible upload quality?
  4. I have this arrangement of what I think is a rather obscure Sonic theme. I used to play Sonic Advance 3 a ton, and this song is engrained into my childhood. And instead of the traditional R&B type style that it's originally in, it works really well with jazz. Source: ReMix: Sonic Advance 3 Staff Roll Jazz ReMix Please don't hate my that my arrangement is really out of time, I'm not done yet. There's also a section for a melodica solo, so there will be melodica in at some point. Here's some jazz.
  5. Check it out!! I really like how this came out!
  6. I think I've caught the jazz bug. This is my first try at it. Part of a demo I put together. Peace

  8. Ahh, Secret of Mana, the game that made me want to become a musician at the tender age of seven... it was my introduction to prog-rock. This one's not done, but is far enough along that I felt comfortable sharing. I was going for some mildly-psychedelic jazz-rock, to set the mood for chasing rabites after dark (and maybe a few cocktails). I haven't made an intro or outro, and the middle part is kind of lacking at the moment. Also, the mix was done on some low-end headphones while my nicer ones sit atop the ever-growing fix-it pile. I'm sure my complete lack of jazz background is apparent with that horn arrangement, but I'm learning as I go. I need a break from this one for a couple days, but I hope to finish it up and mix it by this time next week. In the meantime, please enjoy, and don't hesitate to leave some constructive criticism (or just be brutal if that's your thing, it's all appreciated). Thanks! Follow the white rabite
  9. Debuted this arrangement back on 9/30 with my jazz/VGM group, The Hard Modes (I'm playing sax). I counted it in a hair too fast and ultimately rushed the melody--the groove definitely could have benefitted from us laying back a bit more. My excuse is going to be that this was the second-to-last tune of the show and I was amped up from how the night had gone to that point Also, fun fact: the groove was influenced by Bernard Purdie's work on Steely Dan's Home at Last. If you'd like to read more about the project as a whole you can also check out my website. Thanks for listening!
  10. These recordings came from the premiere of my VGM-based jazz group, The Hard Modes, on 9/30 (same as my last post). This particular arrangement was inspired not only by Uematsu's original cut, but also by the ridiculously awesome cut from the piano collections album. Enjoy! If you'd like to read more about the project as a whole you can also check out my website. Thanks for listening!
  11. Hi, everyone! I recently completed an important phase of a long-term jazz/vgm arrangement project that I have going on called The Hard Modes. I wanted to share it with you all and get your feedback. I premiered 7 arrangements at a live show a couple of weeks ago and recorded the show using a Zoom H2 recorder as well as a no-frills camcorder. I'll be posting the tracks individually over time, but if you like what you hear you can always check out the other parts of the set through SoundCloud or YouTube (though we didn't capture 2 of the arrangements on video). First up is my arrangement of Austin Wintory's I Was Born For This from Journey, which was actually the last tune of our set. Some notes: The sound quality isn't great on either medium, but the sound recording sounds better than the video. That's me on tenor sax! The throwback near the end of the tune was a surprise even for the band; the spot just called for an open solo. My original arrangement was inspired by Ornette Coleman's work, although to get the work together for the show we had to simplify some of the sections a bit, which is why I labeled this a Work in Progress (ultimately, the arrangement should be freer than it is--we'll get there!). And without further adieu... enjoy! If you'd like to read more about the project as a whole you can also check out my website. Thanks for listening!
  12. I did a solo electric piano cover of John Coltrane's "Central Park West." Cover: Here's the original:
  13. Here is a remix I am spending time on, so far the sequence is coming together but I would like to open this up as a collaboration. This cover is the song shortly after the prologue in the Sega CD classic "Snatcher". I would record my bass for this but I am having some gain or pickup issues that I'm hoping to get fixed soon. I can make a shared folder with tracks set for each instrument. I hunted for a great saxophone vst and DSK is by far the best I can find but it ain't "sexy sax man".... yes I am in need of a saxophonist (Tenor, Soprano..). I'll post my latest mix and the original tracks below to give an example. Thanks for listening and your criticism is welcome! [BPM] Original:120 REMIX:125 Remix In Progress Original
  14. I did a cover of the jazz song Autumn Leaves originally written by Joseph Kosma and lyricists Johnny Mercer and Jacques Prevert in 1945 and released in 1946. Cover: Again not sure that I could really find the original but here's some renditions by Chet Baker, Paul Desmond, and another by Nat King Cole
  15. I did a solo electric piano cover of the jazz song "Autumn in New York" originally written by Vernon Duke in 1934. Cover: I couldn't find an original recording (probably because it was in 1934) but here's a couple of renditions by Sinatra and Billie Holiday.
  16. Hallo! This is a Fairy's Fountain mix that I've been working on. I like it so far, but I'm not sure what to do with it next. Any suggestions are appreciated. I am considering having someone do the sax solo live and extending it a bit before the end. https://soundcloud.com/ericfausto/hey-hey-hey Thanks in advance for feedback!

    A fun little, video game-esque Latin, Jazz, African, and whatever else I was feeling at the time type track. Enjoy!
  18. Hi all. Super new. First post ever on OCR Also sorry for SUPER JANK recording style. Finale screwed up real bad when I tried to import soundfont so all my VST instruments sound like a single instrument. This also happens when I try to import it, so I had to phone record the inferior MIDI sound. Anyways, the game is a versus puzzle game, sorta like Tetris attack or Gem Fighters or something. I'm writing the music for the game, which is super duper not close to being done, but I'm getting through character themes and eventually going to do a menu track as well. Lemme know your thoughts, and I suppose as I put them out, I'll upload other character tracks here too.
  19. So when I heard the Super Mario Odyssey theme "Jump In, Super Star!" I was like whaaat! Its Big Band Jazz! So knowing me I had to add some vocals to it. I decided to add my own adlibs but do it in the style of a quartet. The female voice is in the original song but all the male voice are mine. Enjoy!
  20. Hi everyone! I'm currently working on a remix of DDD from SM64. I actually played the melody from memory, so it might sound a bit different than the original. It's still unfinished (hence the abrupt ending lol). I didn't do much in terms of mixing, so i guess it will need some work in that regard too.

  23. Here is the original song I'd like to hear this to be updated, since I think this is a genre of Jazz to be similar like this song There's been an official remix for the remake of the game but I think they absolutely butchered it ^ That's a not how I'd like it to be remixed I guess. A specific request is that please keep the vocals in and don't obscure it.
