My choice for next round is Epilogue from Ecco the Dolphin: Defender of the Future on the Dreamcast. No particular reason for doing so, I just remember it being a nice tune as well the fact that the Dreamcast gets so little love these days  :(

MISSION STATEMENT
The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.



MnP Instructions/Guidelines
1. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.
2. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell.
3. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met.
4. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max).
5. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.
6. All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct


MISC/TIPS
- When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier.
- In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)
- Certain sad or moody source tunes don't have drums or percussion for a reason. So keeping it that way may be the easiest way to retain much of the original feel, such as

The original is already so epic. This is exactly the sort of piece I can usually do something with, but the samples in the original are already so beautiful that I don't think I could do a remix justice.

Don't view it as that way.  You're here to have fun :)

Bollocks, I missed the voting. For what it's worth I would have voted for Xenonetix. I like Kat's submission and the percussion towards the end of the track was a welcome addition, but it lacked 'oomph' and seemed a bit thin in it's delivery. 

I am a sucker for a good piano cover and Xenonetix's delivered in every way. Nice entries both!

Thanks Trism - That means a lot :) - Congrats Kat though on a great arrangement, and I'm sure even with that score, I think Kat still wins ;)
