Seiken Densetsu 3: Songs of Light and Darkness - History


Recommended Posts

Usa turned in a final .WAV today and no more changes are needed on it - meaning the project is now 100% complete in terms of tracks!

Actually hold up, can I update my 2 WAVs real quick? Wouldn't take more than a week or two and I think it'll be worth it. :-)

Yea this is great news. I remember contacting rozo a couple years ago and shouting encouragement. This is one big beast with a LOT of history, the artists deserve to have their music finally released. I can imagine a lot of folks on the album being surprised to see their old songs they didn't even remember existed on the front page :D

Good job getting it done. I have a mix on this too, from a long time ago. It's one of my personal favorite tracks that I've done. Glad people will be able to listen to it.

Looking forward to everyone else's tracks even more, though.

Woohoo! Been a long hard trek but excellent news that it's all finally coming together. You all deserve a big round of applause for surviving it all and for being a part of what's bound to be one gigantic gathering of amazing music. :D

I've worked on a track order some, but I've been waiting to for what we need to do to send them through evaluation first. I've been letting Roz handle that, but he's still busy and I've been wondering today if I need to jump in and do that myself instead. I'd been writing you and seeing Rozovian on occasion, but it hasn't worked out yet that anything's moved forward from it yet.

What I do is order the tracks, name the files properly, convert them to FLAC, try to tag them to ocr standards, include the artwork, and send it in... you should definitely be in touch with Rozo though so you don't turn it in and forget something but it's up to you and there's probably not a huge rush what with all the multitude of albums they're preparing for release now... :-o

Well, I'm trying to order them in a good way so each disc of the project has a good balance and a nice, dramatic progression from song to song.

For example - while each track on here is most definitely good, some tracks are, for lack of a better term, filler, while others really stand out in a variety of ways. Some are epic metal monsters, others are fun orchestral bits, some are dark, some are very light, etc. What I want to do is be able to manipulate the moods and balance out energies so there isn't really a part of the full project that's weak, and put songs that have special dramatic value in the right places (i.e. songs that most definitely sound like they could start a whole new disc by themselves will do exactly that).

With 5 CDs worth of music, it's going to be a challenge, and Roz has told me to wait on doing it on serious merits until we send the whole thing into evaluation. I think he's the one actually submitting it, but I can do that too if he's busy (and I know he is).

I still use this thread for the easy way to find the link to the projects consent statement, I don't know what I'm going to do when this gets finished and locked. Can we vote to keep the project open for a few more years?

Use bookmarks? :grin:

Oh wow, I thought I wrote an update here, but it's not there.

Ok, so it's been a little while longer in making an update than I realized. Here's what's going on with the project right now - it's still essentially complete, but it's waiting on me to create the tracklist before it can be sent in for evaluation. So this time, it's actually ME holding up production on it.

Why is it taking me so long to make up a tracklist? Well, there's a few reasons for it (or excuses, however you prefer to see it :P), the first and foremost being that my August has been particularly wild and ridiculous. For those who don't know, my body has been losing physical strength and energy gradually for the past several years and in July, I finally had to see a doctor about it. At first I was put on anti-depressants and ambien, along with vitamins, to help see if that can restore my positive energy, then later it was determined via blood test my testosterone is low, so I had to start taking testosterone shots to rebuild my body's physical strength and energy. This worked at first, but sooner or later, when you start taking a bunch of new medicine, there's going to be complications and boy were there ever! The shots initially actually had me bedridden because two days later I'd have debilitating pain in my leg. I also found out I wasn't taking the ambien correctly and had to stop for a bit - and that resulted in a WEEKLONG total insomnia rebounding that truly fucked me up for a week and fucked up my schedule for several weeks.

Then my wife got sick at the same time, and this shit wasn't cheap so I had take extra video and photography jobs to help make up the bills.

Then the cat got fleas and that's been difficult because the fleas are stubborn and they make me paranoid due to my autism. Fucking hate fleas, they drive me nuts.

In the meantime, I also had to start doing some other paid music gigs I was finally lucky to get, but their productions were also weird schedule-wise, and by the time it looked like I finally had time to put this project back on my priority schedule, my headphones BROKE and I need to get them repaired.

This kind of shit happens to me ALL the time and it's impossible to plan for. I probably could've gotten the tracklist done by now, but it just didn't work out that way on my end. I don't want to just throw the tracks together and submit it either, I want to CAREFULLY select the best progression of sounds from start to finish I can. I don't even want to do them on my basic speakers, I want to do them on my headphones where I can hear everything clearly and be able to select from there.

You guys put in the effort to make the songs, I need to put in the effort to make the song list - I just had not had the right energy and time to do it yet.

Some of you may be asking, "Well gee Meteo, I still see you post on here and be a dick in IRC and Facebook and all that, why don't you quit doing that shit and focus on this?"

The answer is, "because I need to make time for myself to rest and vent too, just like everyone else, or else I can't get it done right. It's even part of my doctor's orders."

So let me get my headphones fixed, which I'll call the guy this week, and I'll try to get back on that.

Thanks again for your ever-patient nature, Ocremix! I greatly appreciate it. :)

So basically you're just lazy :P just kidding man, those are some serious messed up things... I can only assume everyone wants you to take your time; health (mental or physical) is much more important than online music

You know what's funny is that I realized I do have it as a bookmark, but I have it on the Other > Uncategorized mess of bookmarks. :lol: This is still the thread I think of when I need to get that link!

And be chill Meteo, nobody wants your health to be affected, take your time.. It's been years, it can be years more if it has to.
