OCR01073 - *YES* Super Mario RPG 'Waltz of Pain' *RESUB*

Recommended Posts

Dhsu here again, this time submitting a little collaboration with Blak_Omen. This happens to be a piano solo arrangement of "Sad Song" from Super Mario RPG, a track most commonly associated with Mallow. Blak_Omen produced the arrangement and sheet music, and I performed it.

Since this is a resubmit, you probably know by now that Blak_Omen's initial submission was rejected several months ago; however, the judges' comments seemed to imply that all it needed was a human touch (original decision here: http://www.ocremix.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=14610). I listened to it myself and immediately realized there was something special about Blak's arrangement. I saw such enormous potential...I became enamored, perhaps obsessed, with it and offered to provide the previously-mentioned "touch" for him. In fact, I decided to add a few touches of my own while I was at it, so you might notice a slight difference from Blak's original submission (original track here: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/1/blakomenmusic.htm , click on hifi stream, near the bottom of the page). Various circumstances prevented me from working on it for a while, but this month I got a burst of inspiration and finished recording the MIDI (MC provided the MP3 rendering). So altogether, it's been almost a year in the (re-)making...I hope it was worth it. Although I may never rival the likes of MC or Spekkosaurus, I can at least give it my best shot.

Enjoy!

Sounds like the problems with the first version have been fixed. This is a pretty darn solid mix.

An intricate SMRPG piano piece. I'd always imagined the woe is Mallow theme could be arranged to great ends. In particular, there is no slouching on the pivotal ending; one of the most satisfying I've heard from a remix in quite some time. Well done.
