BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History

Recommended Posts

check your pm box homie. Big reply in there.

On a more general note, I wish there were more WIP's for this project right now, but there aren't so we gotta wait. Thanks for comments on the xenogears project. We are running and handling our project in a way that at the end of the day will allow the project to be succesful and reach the full potential that the ost has. It's a different way of running things but we have very good reasons for doing so that have been discussed and decided on by those involved.

I'll do what I can for this project in the meantime like trying to finish up my mix, need some feedback at this point though. I'm wicked busy though, similar to most people this time of year. If I have enough time and am inspired by a track maybe I'll sign up for another, but that wouldn't be for awhile. We def need to get to that 2/3 mark.

Sign me up for Dr. Robotnik -

I have a near complete E.G.G.M.A.N ReMix I haven't touched in a while that would be perfect for this.

And I would perhaps tackle Sonic 1 gg boss music - do-do-doo-dududu-de-doo....

You know, Avaris brought up something that really hit me, in his PM.

I tried mixing. I downloaded fruity loops, and my computer couldnt handle it. That was three months ago, and now school is back. If anyone can reccomend a course of action, and is willing to help me, I'd love to work on one of these tracks. Nobody's gotten Bowser yet, and maybe with the help of a high-end artist, we could collaborate on a kick-ass track, while I learn what the hell im doing in the first place.

Anyone know any good artists that might be interested?

I think the best idea to go about this is to track down any Mario specialists. Mind you, what kind of genre do you have in mind for your arrangement; is it rock? Is it trance? Is it salsa? (actually scratch that last suggestion :?)

It would also help if you are able to get out there and promote the project a little more. Being stuck in the Requests forums is tough, and I learnt the hard way with the Dragon Warrior project in its first month or so. From project experience, I would advise you to PM anyone and everyone about it; if you have thoughts of any specific artists covering specific songs (like you did when contacting me to do Cortex), ask them. If that falls through, go through your next choices in line and so on and so on. I am really sure this will help things out.

On top of that I will be able to arrive at the Liverpool campus on Sunday, and once I do I will be able to start work on my arrangement. Odds are I may need to find a guitarist myself to help cover some ground, but we'll see what happens :)

i definately agree with Rexy. I never would have had as many remixers as i have over at Humans and Gears without PMing people.

Also, Rexy's current number of posts:2008 (the year i graduate from high school 8O )

Why does everyone think I didn't PM enough people? I sent messages out to, maybe 20 people, and double that to 40 when you count what Kanjika sent out.

And, Bowser? Of course he's gonna be rock. If there is any track that expresses the following idea, it's gonna be this one; A good site project shouldn't be distinguishable from the Genres of music featured within. Bowser's gonna rock. Hard. "Bowser is Pissed"? Nowhere near what I want that track to be. Don't get me wrong, it was good; one of my favorites. But, thats more like a stepping stone onto where this track is.

The crowning piece of this album, everyone knows who Bowser is. Starting off with a short bit of final bowser's theme from Mario 64, dark, slow,and maybe a little drugged-out and warped around. Speeds up, into another very short bit of a darker version of the boss music from Sunshine. The main body of the ReMix would be Bowser's theme in 64. Not Koopa's Road, but the on ewhen you actually fight him. Then, I think, using the SMB castle theme for a while, do something with that. Throw the SMW Koopa kids in for a very short while. Finish with "Final Bowser" from 64.

Now, I'm no music expert (And, yet, I'm the coordinator). I mean, it sounds good in my head, but, for real? I don't know. Opinions?

EDIT: I dont know how I could ignore his theme in Yoshi's Island. Thats gotta be in there somewhere. But its seems to crowded, I think.

1st WIPs due by November 19th. For those of you who couldn't tell, thats the North American Wii release date. Sorry, but thanks you for playing, drop by again soon.

...Sad to say Manji's out. He's busy, and gonna be for a long while. Which means Sephiroth's Theme is up for grabs.

Let me point out, as I said before, that Seph's got three themes.

Birth of a God

Those Chosen by the Planet

One-Winged Angel

Now, beacause OWA has been redone several times, for things like Advent Children, Kingdom Hearts, and FF7 albums, it has been decided that One-Winged Angel Cannot Be Done Alone! Whoever ends up with Sephiroth needs to know that all 3 themes must be present.

Well, whatever. Its just that, redoing OWA wouldnt result in anything new. I mean sure, you could do it in samba, or mambo. Maybe in the style of the Beach Boys? Or, howabout 50 Cent? You could have someone yodel the latin, or maybe a country-western ballade. But, 2/3's fine. I just dont want to end up with something thats already been heard.

...actually, some of those don't sound too bad.

stopposting4vrsf1.gif

Seriously though, if u post something here at least make it related to this project and not other projects.

EDIT: I agree with Rexy. Besides all this BS your music is pretty good.

Oh by the way if anyone wants to do the Sephiroth theme OWA and whatever other track you wanna include in a fast paced orchestral track with lots of energy, send me a PM, I have an absolutely wicked idea. I can give you a song that will give you a damn good example of what I'm talking about too.

Even if someone just wants to do the arrangement but does not have the samples to pull it off, I will do the instrumentation for you with Native Instruments Kontakt 2 and Kompakt. I'd do the mix, but I got way too many things going on to do it. But, I could handle doing the instrumentation.

Koelsch, the guy you quoted has more than five personnel on his project, though I wouldn't be as harsh as he was saying though. As much as I appreciate your sax work, I'd say try not to make it sound like you were attacking the wrong guy(s).

My apologies for posting that message in the Xenogears topic by mistake :oops:

Yeah anyone whose interested :roll: look up there, about the Sephiroth mix.

"That's cool Rexy"

"i definately agree with Rexy"

"I agree with Rexy"

...you know, sexism work both ways. Its a shame that someone gets respect because they have a different anatomy than you, and not their remixing skills, or anything that pertains to the site we're on. If a judge, or another famous mixer was here, I guarantee HE wouldn't get anywhere near that respect. No offense, Rexy. It's not that you don't deserve it, its just that, to me, it seems like you're getting it for the wrong reason.

soooooooooooooo........, with that all said and done. Avaris, anyone can post anything here. Bumps, ReMixes, why they didn't get their math homework in on time, or what color their underwear is (blue).

Now, I'm on dial up (but my whole county's getting free wi-fi soon!). If The Koelsch's music is as good as you say it is, maybe he'd like to join. If someone can tell me in the next 5 hours if his music is good (like I said, dial-up). Otherwise, by then, I'll find out myself.

If you want to join in at all, that is.

But Im available to play sax that anyone may need.

Sexism? Rexy made some good points, so she gets some respect. Don't see anything wrong there. She felt bad bout posting that in our project forum, and I just let her know it's cool. Koelsch just made a comment bout the xenogears project that in my opinion didn't need to be said. He does have some good stuff go check it out the WIP other section. My comment about posting was just a general rule of thumb for myself. Might not be for everyone.

Well these kinda arguments and shit are stupid, and nothing has been accomplished from them. No hard feelings guys.

Yeesh. I guess I did go a little over-the-top there. But, I dunno. I just get a kinda peeved by that stuff. But, no harm done. I just hope that that one little comment doesn't kill this whole thread.

The Koelsch1, if you've been keeping up, I did say that I want to do a jazz album, if this ones as much of a succes as I hope. Ill keep you in the back of my head for now.
