Recommended Posts

Ok, seriously, its a sweet remix. Don't know the source, don't know the game, but I do know this is sweet stuff. Short but sweet. Make it longer and sweeter next time.

Oh yeah almost forgot - PROTO MUST DIE

Many of you may not know this... but our very own ProtoDome, a beloved and well-respected musician, is dying. He suffers from a very serious affliction known as Judicially Diminished Grasp of Full Groove-Time Syndrome, or JDGFGTS. This increasingly-common disorder is responsible for both the frighteningly short length of his remixes, as well as his pale and sickly appearance.

While little research has been conducted concerning what actually causes JDGFGTS, most experts agree that consuming excess amounts of "not enough variation" and "too repetitive" are the leading risk factors. Treatment options are notoriously arduous, but not out of the question. For example, most doctors will recommend an initial treatment plan known as "listening to some actual music for a change". However, if unsuccessful, the only remaining option is an extremely risky and near-impossible procedure commonly referred to as "canning the judges, djp".

Unfortunately, it is too late for young ProtoDome. His JDGFGTS has progressed past the point of no return, and I am disheartened to report that his remixes will simply become shorter and shorter until they are no longer substantial enough to pass the judges panel. While he will continue to write music, he will only be able to compose short and unsatisfying jingles, until finally his creativity degenerates into a disjointed assortment of blips, bloops, and beeps. Without the ability to create music, he will die a pitiful and untimely death, and I can only hope that someone will be there for him when his poor heart plays its final note.

edit: in all seriousness, the bite-size nature of this remix is one of its greatest strengths. makes me want to play it over and over... and over and over and over and over. can't comment on the arrangement, don't know the source, but I love the song and the production is top-notch. absolutely ADORE the subtle glitch-ish percussion :D

This may be short, but it's not the length that counts; it's how you use...the source. And how you use the source is secksi tiemz. I listened to the midi at vgmusic, and I was surprised at how easily I was able to recognize it. This mix sounded like it would be ridiculously liberal, but it's not as far as I expected. It's got a balanced dose of protofication.

Also tasty drums.

GUD JOB

Edit: Somehow I went from humming this to humming the Magic School Bus theme in a matter of a few seconds. WHAT DID YOU PUT IN THIS THING

Interesting, the noise-caked percussion juxtaposed with a clear piano gives a kind of Metroid-Prime-meets-jazz effect. I like the direction your mixes are headed, Proto. :-)

Oh hell naw. I liked the puzzle theme. It was...appropriate and THINK TYME.

But if that was your motivation for making this, then I hope you get furious at many, many more OST's.

Proto, man! Your stuff is always brilliant. I ain't played this game but this tune makes me want to check it up.

We gotta work together sometime, i'm totally feeling the vibe that you lay down in your tunes, man. Wicked!

Jeez. I absolutely hated this song in the game, but this arrangement makes it surprisingly bearable. Of course, the theme itself is pretty heavily obscured, but go with what works, I guess.

Definitely digging the electric piano work here, and while the acoustic piano is a bit bright (*almost* painfully so), I think it helps to bring the character of the original theme into play here. I enjoyed it :nicework:

I listened to the source before listening to this mix. The source was really annoying. I couldn't listen to the entire thing, but this mix makes it so much more enjoyable! A touch of Jazz and some good glitchiness. Great work Proto!

Much, much, MUCH, better than the source tune of the puzzles. Thank god. Yeah, kinda short and bite-sized, but when it comes down to it, I think that adds to my appreciation of this particular tune, considering the source. Very light jazz with a nice piano and glitched up drums, perfect for a quick break. Good ReMix for a good game. Can't really ask for more.

ho-lee-shit, you know this one spoke to me right away with the crackly Rhodes opening.

This is the jam. I'd love to remix the remix. So very nice.

Very awesome work, man. Keep these up!

I am a fan, it's got a great feel. Seems like this should be going on in the background at a classy pool hall maybe. I've never been to a classy pool hall, but if there is one... Well anyway, sweet tune!

Lovin' this.

I love, love, love the sound of the Rhodes piano in this remix. I agree with SiriusBeatz, though, in that the piano itself is a bit too bright.

The glitchy beats give this remix a very unique touch; nice idea.

Great stuff.

I love that intro.

This really makes me think of the sound you get out of a record player, only that it sounds modernized and actually helps the song out a lot.

The higher notes actually hurt my ears in my car, for some weird reason.

Great jazz :)

I agree with everyone about the Rhodes Piano. It just works so well in so many ways. : D

This is wonderful! It's a great way to retool the puzzle solving theme, which really does grind itself into your head if you're playing too long. I would love to hear versions of the puzzle themes from the other games as well.
