PRC119: Embark on a Journey of Re-Orchestration! (Tales of Symphonia)

Recommended Posts

Okay, now it's time to get to the voting! Here's what we're going to do.

You're going to visit the ThaSauce link and check out all seven entries. Once done, you should fill the form at the bottom of the screen, pick three mixes and file them from first to third with a reasoning attached to them. Contestants are encouraged to do this as they will automatically get 3 points for voting. Since I won PRC118, my vote counts twice so I'm equally as important here. You have until Tuesday May 6th at 4:59am EDT to cast your vote. The winner gets to choose the source tune for PRC120!

Binweasel (f/ Nick) - Warning: Gibbous

just64helpin - Sly Land

munchi - Sylver Lining

NeoS - Happylands

Showroom Dummy - Pixelated Tales

V (as 904) - Ovaltine

xGx - Euphoria in Sylvarant

The People's Remix Competition 119

PRCv5-15

Hello everyone and welcome to the People's Remix Competition! PRC118 saw the return of Kirby 64 to the PRC; a lighter turnout than its campaign with Neo Star 3 years ago, but it still had enough for a strong diversity of entries, from happy hardcore to new age to Irish folk music. And once again, you guys wanted me to pick the next source tune after dealing with the new-agey stuff.

Thinking long and hard, PRC119 takes us one console generation upwards. We're looking at a classic GameCube RPG from the guys at Namco; pretty much anyone hanging around in site project circles would be familiar with this one. If not, then maybe the terms of summon spirits, a giant tree of mana, two fighting worlds for that mana and the legend of the Journey of Regeneration familiarise you?

I didn't become an active GameCube gamer myself until I swagged a Wii and a set of GC peripherals a few months back. When I did, I wanted to explore a good amount of games that it offered, and having been asked by KyleJCrb to write a few tracks for the "Summoning of Spirits" Tales series project (comprising of tracks from this game and Tales of Phantasia), I somehow felt as if I wanted to see more into the source material that I covered by looking at how the games flowed together.

In that case, I found myself going into a more fast-paced RPG than what I would normally play, and I absolutely loved it. The scenarios were what can be expected from an anime, had enough twists to keep going and pretty much every character had their own personality to ensure that their significance in the plot and in gameplay are equally balanced. I have no regrets in looking into it.

That said, I couldn't help but think there needs to be some coverage in the PRC. The track I've chosen, the field music for Sylvarant, isn't among those to be covered in Kyle's project and he's no longer taking any Symphonia-based spots on it. But I would like to see it covered anyway - it's got a nice simple melody and chord structure, has a happy and adventurous feel to it and feel can work well to anyone regardless of remixing skill. I hope it all works out; enjoy!

You'd better do okay with this one, otherwise I'd cast Indignation on the lot of you :P

GOOD LUCK!

... know what game I'm getting next, now. XD

Song didn't seem anything special at first, but it grows on you. And it reminds me of Eno's "Mother Whale Eyeless" for reasons I can't explain - and Neil Diamond.

Time to weasel-fy it, haha!

The more I listen to it, the more the tune reminds me of either Disney's "When You Wish upon a Star" or the E.T. theme. A bit of it is sorta like the Mario Kart 64 Staff Roll, too.

You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix.

Just to clarify... I'm allowed to have a friend play the bass guitar part I've got half written out, and it's all right if he just improvises over the rest?

Hah, naming it... that's going to be a toughy for me, too. And no story this time. How happy is it? Something like "Tales of Euphoria" sounds rather nice. 's got the "pho" and "ia" sounds in it.

Wouldn't dream of it.

Of not doing it, I mean.

Eheh. I bought a new amp yesterday, to replace my old, non-working one, with the intention of playing the guitar live... only to find out my computer's soundcard doesn't support line-in. Consider yourselves lucky...

Whichever happens, we've got a surprising turnout so far. Can we push it to be the most active PRC this season? Anything can happen with just 8 hours to go!
