I know you said you'd give me untill tonight Claado but in fact I wouldn't want to be one of the "lackers" of the project so in that respect I won't be trying any more. Yet for those interested I will complete my song and the time I could have been in this project will be used to make myself get better at music over all and gathering more powerful samples and such for greater sound.

Um do we just post our desired tracks here or what? Guess I will anyway...

I'm interested in developing the heavier percussion sound I've been working on, so I'd love to claim a battle them of some sort (though I'm content with whatever I get assigned). So I guess my top picks are:

1. Battle with Magus

2. A Shot of Crisis

3. Battle 1

But again, I'm willing to take whatever I get.

Dunno how we're splitting the tracks between remixers, but I'd gladly work on more than one track, or collaborate with others on some.

Looking forward to tomorrow guys. ^^

I think sephfire will do an excellent job with Magus's theme, I can already here those sweet tribal beats kicking away to the epic battle scene - go for it seph!

For my part, I think I have to download the .nsf file and listen to all the tracks again to get an idea of what I want, so that will be my "homework" for tonight.

Technically, you can start on your piece now, sephfire. It's just that, if somebody else claims it before you do tomorrow at noon, then they get it, even if you're halfway done. So just be on the offensive.

Also, it is HIGHLY encouraged that you take on more than one track. Two or three would be ideal; just try to do as much as you feel comfortable with.

Yeah, for you, battle themes would be rockin'. Pulse-pounding orchestral is your forte, definitely.

yeah so what happened to mv? If he just couldn't finish up an audition piece, I still hope he's wanting to participate. I was just listening to his remix over at vgmix Darkest Omen that is Stuff of Legends, and it would be perfect for this project. My point is, if mv doesn't have time to make new songs for the CT Movie Project, perhaps he could "donate" Darkest Omen/whatever other CT orchestrations he worked on for the CT video game remake project he was doing...?

Claado, in case you haven't heard mv's Darkest Omen, here is the link: Darkest Omen

Umm yeah, is that cool Claado? Or do you want all new pieces for this project... I was just wondering a)what happened to mv and B) if his old stuff could be put on the album (with his consent) if he's too busy to make any new songs.

Man the "showdown" is in 9 hours, I need to get to bed. Here's hoping I wake up in time... I already have my songs picked out :wink:

Alright, I just listened to "Darkest Omen", and it fits perfectly with number 12 on the OST listing (the Cyrus flashback sequence), so I'll PM mv and ask if he wants it used. If he does, mv is in, and we have another spot filled.

*sigh* I won't be here when the song-picking stage starts :( So I'd like to ask for an "Epilogue" song now. But if that's not possible, I'll take any song.

Well, the ending theme has already been pre-offered to somebody else, so...if you want to do #24 on the OST listing, the farewell theme, that's still up for grabs...

Just noticed that I should make this clear: numbers 1, 3, 25, and possibly 12 are all NOT available for mixing. I repeat, 1, 3, AND 25 ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR MIXING. 12's fate will be decided soon, so PLEASE DO NOT CHOOSE #12 AS AN OPTION.

I'll put that up on the front page (just in case somebody missed it here).

Oh, I made it in time!

Yes, I want #24 - Epilogue – To Good Friends. As stated in the OST listing,

24. SCENE: At the Millennial Fair Gate, the four say their goodbyes as Frog

leaves for home, and he disappears along with the Gate, its purpose fulfilled; the movie ends with Crono and Marle pondering the future

SONGS: Epilogue – To Good Friends

LENGTH: 3:00

And if we are allowed to take more than one song, and if we agreed to give sephfire the "Battle with Magus" theme :D, then I'll take Battle with Lavos as well.

23. SCENE: The four battle Lavos and destroy him after a combined magical

attack that causes him to explode and the Ocean Palace to crumble, as the four escape in the Epoch and watch it fall from the North Cape

SONGS: Last Battle

LENGTH: 5:30

EDIT:

Oh, as for the source tunes - I'll use "World Revolution", "Boss Battle 2", "Last Battle", maybe "Tyran Castle" for #23;

"Far Off Promise", "CT Main Theme", perhaps "Manoria Cathedral", "Underground Sewer", "Fanfare 1" tracks for #24.

Double post, sorry, but I have to get this to the top of the list.

Alright, it's close enough to noon...mixers, post what songs on the OST listing you'd like to do, along with source tunes you plan on using, wait for a PM from me, and start making music!

ALSO, I have an update on the title theme song...I've listened to the choices time and time again, thoroughly enjoying them all many times in a row, and I have finally made up my mind. And the winner is...

"Inciting Incident" by sephfire

The others came very close, but his is the best suited for an opening theme. The other finished pieces will be bonus tracks on the ST anyway, so...congratulations all. You've earned it.

aahh crapp I think you made it a little early Lol but i want Scene 23 as well =p

I already got it planned an everything :(

I was thinking of using the Lavos' Theme, World Revolution, the Last Battle, and maybe a little of the 2nd Boss Battle Theme for it.

I also wanted to do a remake of Scene 3 with a sort of kick ass marching style to it, but DarkeSword already did it. waaah

Maybe I'll just take some leftovers =p

and yeah you didn't even double post because Emperor posted 4 minutes early Lol

Hmm...shalt thou and Emperor duketh it out?

Sorry, Ben...unless Emperor gives it up, he's got it. I know I did this thing a little early...and I know you already had your plans worked out for the song...dangit...

Emperor, any chance you can work this out with Ben here? Track 22 is also dark-themed, and includes Magus' awesome destruction of Queen Zeal. That'd be tight. But I won't push you away from the piece if you want it...you were first, after all...

haha o man it has begun! Why did it have to be that everyone wanted Lavos Battle - "World Revolution" was at the top of my list of songs I wanted to mess around with... and now since two people are already disputing over it, I will go ahead and make the song selection that is probably most feared and taboo:

ZEALOLOLOL (ahem, "Corridors of Time")

Also I would like to reserve The Epoch scene. "Wings That Cross Time" is the song mainly used for that one me thinks... sorry Claado I did not plan out how I would use the songs for the scenes - only which songs I really wanted to focus on. If my two selections go through, I will get back to you on how I will approach them. Hmm, I might actually change my mind about doing Zeal in a little bit, I wasn't planning on doing it at all until I got mad at myself for not getting up early enough to claim Lavos. But either of the two contesting over it will do a great job, I hope it gets settled soon.

Whoa. 8O Did NOT expect to see my audition picked. Guess I better get to polishing that sucker up...

As I said last night, I'd love to take number ?? - "Battle with Magus."

Emperor: However, if were really hoping for that one, I'm willing to share/collaborate on it and claim another for myself (such as my second pick, "A Shot of Crisis"). Seems a little unfair for me to unofficially "claim" a song the night before....

I'm sorry I just got a little thrown off by the selection of scenes rather than songs... and I had specific songs picked out - so let me clarify something real quickly then: we are allowed and encouraged to mix different songs from the OST into each scene that we do? Kind of like what Emperor did with the main theme then? I was under the impression we would only be working with one song, and could possibly throw in "To Far Away Promises."

???

You can work with as many songs as you like, as long as you can effectively weave them together. Just try not to use the same song everybody else is. I don't want 22 mixes using Corridors of Time when there are 100 other tunes to be used.

I was under that impression as well... and we are arranging the music according to what is happening in the script, correct?

Yes. Just remember that the music enforces the action and gives it charge. If somebody is sad, so should the music be. Action scenes require upbeat music. You get the drift.
