OCR01483 - EarthBound "Nirvana"

Recommended Posts

The piano just sounds so pleasant and gorgeous.. I could really just fall asleep to this. I was expecting something much different then this when I read the title but im glad it turned out to be the way it did.

This is really great. Very appropriate title as well. It definitely has the Pocohontas vibe and in a good way too.

I keep asking my sister to let me know when you and her are hanging out so I can join and finally meet you in person - haha I almost got to this weekend - I told her to call me if you were at some friend's "moving to a new house party" she was telling me you might be at. Anyway, I'm in town on the weekends so hit me back if you want to hang. And by hang I mean you can play this song and all your other OCRemixes for me haha.

Great job buddy.

Have you ever heard a song so perfect it made you sit back and think ...wow... why do I care about all this pointless shit?

I'm amazed how well you portrayed such a powerful feeling. 10 out of 10.

Beautiful work. Very calm, reflective, (my favorite word) melancholy. Normally I've got some mental imagery conjuring and conforming to any good remix/song at all, but for this there's just a pleasant nothing, a small inkling of a stream, water, just a natural, gentle flow on a warm, lazy day.

Dhsu's pianomanshipness is the best of OCR, and it's nice to see how the complexity of his mixes has grown as well.

Great work. Very approriate title, too!

Personally I don't find it very melancholic, but thats just me. I agree with everything else tough.

This is sunset song.

Also, reminds me of childhood.

Absolutly amazing. I think this one's goin on the old player and ain't comin' off until the MP3 player explodes. 11/10.

Edit: Scratch that, I'm getting all the "Bound Together" songs!

Niiiice. The descending pentatonic chords motif reminds me of "Colors of the Wind" by Judy Kuhn (the single from Disney's "Pocahontas").

Anyway, very nice work! Serene, tranquil--great voice leading, too :)

When I add a song to my library in Windows Media Player, I always assign to it my own "Genre" label. The best of the best, which is very few, get the label "Grand." This remix has been given that label. Amazing work.

A friend of mine sent me the link for the Bound Together project page, where I downloaded the whole thing. I think taking the time to slow this particular tune down does it a lot of good. You work extremely well with the piano. The title you chose for your arrangement fits perfectly--listening to it is certainly a few amazing minutes of nirvana.

I dig this, I like the subtle pauses and hesitations. It does bear a resemblance to Pocahontas but not like you ripped anything off, it's a good thing. It's a great arrangement, but I'd like to see somebody do a 180 and bring out that rad percussion from the original

Reflective is a great way to describe this piece. Loved the calm feel throughout. I heard the Pocohantus feel right away, being familiar with that soundtrack and not with EB's.

Great work as always from Dshu.

I've been very much into melancholy and/or ominous piano stuff recently, and hearing this is almost emotionally shocking. Like my heart has jumped from an ice lake into a hot spring. Not... accustomed to... uplifting piano music. So pretty... so full of hope and sunshine. *dies of aural hypothermia*

Seriously, this music could uplift the unupliftable. It's an amazing emotive piece that I can't get enough of. It's music to dream happy thoughts to. Thoughts like: Joint-handed children skipping through a town made of teacake situated within a meadow of donuts and napping puppies. Otherwise known as Nirvana.

Exceptional playing and a great piano tone- this is really serene and nostalgic. A little questionable style choice (if it was in fact a choice) at the end of the run near the middle, but overall top notch work.

I think Nirvana is a pretty apt title.

Since it was both mentioned that this sounds Eastern and Disney's Pocahontas-esque, I can hear both in here, and it's like whoa....

This piece does have a transcendental feel to it, that peacefully calming mood. There's also something in this mix that just makes me smile. I guess its just a touch of nostalgia and familiarity that's been woven throughout here. All in all, I really like this mix A Lot.

I'm a huge sucker for piano pieces and Earthbound, so this remix has two things going for it! On top of that, it is wonderfully played and is both creative, and close to the source material. I'll agree with an above poster: Beautiful!
